|The Summary Of our Project “ DISCOVERING THE DIFFERENT LIVING AREAS”
The project aims at improving the chances of the youngsters of being true citizens. Students will have a look at the different parts of Europe in order to exchange their views and experiences on the project topics. Students will work in groups with their leaders. They will have already learned how to look at a map and the clues of finding their own way. They will have a special route and visit the historical places. They will also learn the amazing stories of the monuments, castles, palaces and so on. They will try to answer the interesting questions that have been prepared before. The communication will be in English, German or French according to the group members’ profile. We strongly believe that learning from each other, sharing good and bad moments together will effect in a positive the harmony, balance and solidarity among the students. In group work they also support each other. This will give the members of the group the opportunity to share their knowledge, experiences and their points of views. Working in groups with a leader can give positive energy to those who share and take. The leaders are motivators and have a stimulated role to develop the awareness of the group work.
