MONTES, Rafael Valls. The multi culture in the History teaching and the umbalance between the educative intentions and school practices: the challenges of the present and immediate future . Educ. rev. [online]. 2011, n.42, pp.73-94. ISSN 0104-4060. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-40602011000500006.
In our contribution we have developed an initial proximity with the concepts of European dimension, intercultural dimension and of multi culture in relation to the history teaching. We have focused on, then, the characteristics which these dimensions have in the school reality and practice, showing its principal insufficiencies and, occasionally, deficiencies. Finally, we have analysed the results of several enquires about the Spanish school youngest' representations and attitudes, expanded to the ones of other countries, respect to the "foreigners" and the challenges which these have for an oriented teaching for the formation of some citizens more opened, plurals and sympathetic.
