Seoul: Multiperspectivity and colonial history

Today, the ninth graders talk about the so-called ‘Berlin Africa conference’ of 1884/85. The headline is “scramble for Africa” and the pupils take first the perspective of colonial powers and their respective interests. Afterwards they write a diary entry from the perspective of someone suppressed by the colonial powers.

History is one of the bilingual subjects of the school which means it is taught and learnt in English and in German.
