Classics for Kids

Classical music helps students to think more creatively, and stimulate the mind. It can also help teachers meet the educational objectives of their students.

Classics for Kids offers lesson plans and teaching resources that give educators and families practical plans and activities that use classical music to help children learn (composers, games, music, resources for parents and for teachers...)

For more than ten years, the Zinn Education Project has introduced students to a more accurate, complex, and engaging understanding of history than is found in traditional textbooks and curricula.

Their website offers free, downloadable lessons and articles organized by theme, time period and grade level. The teaching materials emphasize the role of working people, women, people of color, and organized social movements in shaping history.

Lists of Intangible Cultural Heritage and the Register of good safeguarding practices

Throughout 2018, we celebrate our diverse cultural heritage across Europe, at EU, national, regional and local level.

Cultural heritage also includes traditions or living expressions inherited from our ancestors, such as oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe or the knowledge and skills to produce traditional crafts. Intangible cultural heritage is an important factor in maintaining cultural diversity.

The Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage meets annually to evaluate nominations and decide whether or not to inscribe those cultural practices and expressions of intangible heritage on the Convention’s Lists.

By clicking on the link below, you can discover the nominations, photos and videos. 

A very interesting tool for teachers for sensitising young people to the importance of preserving intangible cultural heritage.
