On October 4—7, 2021, the world's first World Congress of School History Teachers was held in Moscow. The initiative to hold the Congress came from the Academy of the Ministry of Education of Russia, the Institute of World History of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the All-Russian Public Organization “Association of Teachers of History and Social Studies” and the State Academic University for the Humanities. The European Association of History Teachers “Euroclio” acted as a co-organizer of the Congress. During the Plenary session of the Congress and 7 sections, Russian and foreign history teachers discussed the most pressing issues of pedagogical practice: the experience of creating concepts for teaching history at school in different countries, issues of the correlation of national and world history in school curricula, the feasibility of dividing the educational process into basic and advanced levels, problems and prospects of the distance form of teaching history in schools, the format and structure of modern school textbooks. Special attention was paid to the discussion of teaching the history of the Second World War in different countries of the world and the history of revolutions. Also during the work of the Congress, the IV Congress of Russian History Teachers was held. Within the framework of the congress, the participants discussed topical issues and problems of teaching history in Russian secondary schools: expanding ties and exchange of experience between teachers from different regions of Russia, experience and further prospects for the introduction of the Historical and Cultural Standard as part of the concept of teaching history at school, issues of synchronization of national and of general history in the school curriculum, improvement of evaluation procedures in history, methodological support and development of programs for teaching regional history as part of the course of national history.
