The master’s thesis deals with experiential learning related to the local history of Črni Vrh and its surroundings. The central idea of experiential learning is that students learn most effectively when they do things themselves. Based on this idea, it is assumed that experiential learning represents a good starting point to learn about local history, since the experiences are acquired in the local environment and introduced into the learning process. The aim of the master’s thesis is therefore to analyse how often teachers use experiential learning related to local history in their history lessons. A brief historical survey of the Črni Vrh area comprises the period from 1823, when the Franciscan cadaster for the cadastral municipality of Črni Vrh was issued, until the end of the Second World War. The practical segment of the master’s research consisted of a teaching performance, when theory met practice, conducted at the Črni Vrh elementary school. The topic of the history lesson was the Rapallo border and its remains, which were included in the local history learning experience. The empirical part of the thesis includes a presentation of the results of an online survey and their analysis. The results of the survey, filled out by 10 history teachers in Slovene primary schools, reveal that teachers use experiential learning frequently and they tend to include local history elements in their history lessons. One of the aims of the thesis is to encourage elementary schools to incorporate experiential learning and local history into the school curriculum more frequently.
