The role of citizenship teachers in helping high school students understand the culture of democracy in the era of pandemic COVID-19
Citizenship learning is not just transferring knowledge to students, but a way to help students learn well.

A teacher can deliver subject matter with a variety of learning models, and of course, involve students actively in the learning process. The teacher educates and has an attitude of loving and loving students, and the teacher as a guide emphasizes the task, providing assistance to students in solving the problems they face. This task is an educational aspect, because it is not only concerned with knowledge, but also concerns personality development and the formation of students' values.

The importance of local history for strengthening the spirit of mutual cooperation in junior high schools
Everyone needs to have an understanding of history from an early age in order to know and understand the meaning of past events so that it can be used as a basis for attitudes in facing reality in the present and determining the future. This means that history needs to be learned from an early age by each individual, both formally and informally. The linkage of individuals with society or their nation requires the formation of an awareness of the importance of history on issues of common life such as: nationalism, unity, solidarity and national integrity. The realization of the ideals of a society or nation is largely determined by the next generation who are able to understand the history of the community or nation. This very important historical understanding is now being implemented through the educational path, namely history education. The aim of the national history course is to know and realize that humans live in the environment. There is a functional and reciprocal relationship between humans and their environment, so that humans are able to make use of it. The community has knowledge of changes that have been experienced by residents in their environment in the past so that they are able to understand the current state of the environment. Thus, history lessons are expected to be able to broaden the horizons of public relations between nations in the world.
