Teaching History in a Multicultural Society

2005. No. 2. P. 164–172 [issue contents]
The article presents the problem of an urgent re-orientation in the school course in History. Its necessity is caused by four principal reasons: the necessity to preserve the integrity and unity of the country, the new multi-confessional structure of modern society, permanent mass migrations, and the increase in social tension and in inter-ethnic hostility. The skills to be acquired in the History class are adaptation to cultural diversity, acceptance of such diversity as of a norm, and not as something unusual, constructive dialogue with those who think differently, and development of tolerance.
