OBRAZ VEĽKEJ MORAVY V SLOVENSKÝCH A ČESKÝCH UČEBNIACH PRE STREDNÉ ŠKOLY
(Great Moravia in Slovak and Czech Textbooks for Secondary Schools)
Abstract: Textbooks are unique teaching tools as they are the primary means by which the results of the specialized research are modified to be used in educational process. Textbooks are therefore most commonly used professional material which has gradually come into the centre of attention of researchers and specialized institutions. Textbooks, textbook policy and their structure have undergone regular transformations in history. However, as it happened, they did not always reflect the actual state of historical research, and each period gave preference to selected topics and themes. Great Moravia is a good example of such didactic-historical topic. The article focuses on the context of Great Moravia and its representation in expository texts in Slovak and Czech history textbooks for secondary schools. It deals with the use of facts, the length of the text, presentation of the topic in a wider context, its place within educational standards, the use of sources, study questions and the use of additional material.
