2. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND (12/2018 - 02/2019)

  • Share basic facts about the partner countries history and culture. What was the role of women/men in the past? Has it changed? How? How did the education work? Students will make some investigation at local libraries or museums/archives, maybe find some older citizens (grandparents, neighbours…) who remember the times long time ago – ask the questions, make a video, an interview… Upload the results on the blog, eTwinning platform and other dissemination tools. Share the information at partner schools, use it in classes of history or civics, maybe even in English lessons. Display the results on school noticeboard, in Erasmus corner, in the entrance hall.

    Here is the result of our work on the topic of the role of women from the historical perspective in form of a collaborative presentation:

  • Historical background

    3rd May Constitution Day

    In modern Poland, this day is free from work, you can see many parades, exhibitions, concerts and public figure speeches. Most important Polish politicians participate in those festivities; for example in 2011 President of Poland, Bronisław Komorowski, Prime Minister of Poland, Donald Tusk, and Marshal of the Sejm, Grzegorz Schetyna, Marshal of the Senate, Bogdan Borusewicz, and Minister of National Defence, Bogdan Klich, took part in the festivities in Warsaw. The official festivities in Warsaw or in other Polish cities in the presence of the President and important dignitaries would include flag flying, cannon salvos, reading of the constitution preamble, and singing a patriotic song from the November Uprising, Witaj, Majowa Jutrzenko (Welcome, May Dawn) plus drill shows and the annual military parade.

    Polish National Flag Day

    Various types of patriotic actions and demonstrations are organized on this day. Usually people hang out the Polish flag on their homes or cars but for example, on the 2nd of May 2009 in Bytom, over 500 people created a white and red flag from previously prepared and simultaneously lifted umbrellas. It was probably the largest flag created in Poland on the occasion of the National Flag Day.
    One of the interesting facts is that on the same day, the Day of Polish Community Abroad is celebrated.
