Open up society

5 Open up society! may be used in many different ways. The chapters can be read chronologically or used as a starting point for a variety of topics that can be addressed in social studies. In both cases, teachers and students may benefit from the supplementary material found on www.luksamfundetop.dk/english. If the book is used as the basis of different thematic courses, the table below may serve as an example. A theme often needs to be illustrated through more than one discipline. We have tried to exemplify this in the table below and through some of the exercises specially prepared for the book and found on the book’s website. We hope the students’ increasing knowledge of and contact with the three disciplines will help them perform simple interdisciplinary analyses of relevant issues.
