Summary of the project plan
The main aim of this school project is to create the right atmosphere so that the students from different European countries can compare their lifestyle, attitudes and values in order to – being aware of the similarities and differences - become more open and tolerant, reject the different types of racism and xenophobia and start a relationship of cooperation and friendship. Using the resource of the new technologies and the exchange of materials produced in English, these teenagers will trespass the barriers of incommunication and they will have the opportunity to be in touch with each other, exchanging ideas and dealing with subjects of interest about their everyday life at school, at home or in their free time (hobbies, problems etc) analysing the past and the expectations in the future.
Students of the partner schools, producing the materials in English, will elaborate a digital newspaper in the Internet with different links, and will publish a school newspaper in a traditional framework with photos, articles, pieces of news that teenagers consider relevant in their region or country. At the same time, they will write reports, articles, essays about the different topics to work about in the three years (education, free time, and values). So it will be offered to all participants a vision of youth life in each region and country. The topics to develop in the following years are:
- First year: Education (School syllabus, rules and discipline, exams, sports, counselling, problems…)
- Second year: Free time (music, sports, family life, fashion ….)
- Third year: Young people´s expectations about their future, their country, social values, everyday problems.
