This is a complementary project since it takes prejudice as topic and it has negative effects in school progress. The project examines prejudice in term of its cause and effects, includes students, teachers, parents, social environment, media as the actors and produces an output book for challenging with prejudice.
It is innovative in means of clarifying needs scientifically because we applied surveys to define present situation in local level. It is seen that PREJUDICE remains a strong influence in society, schools and the daily life in classrooms.
It includes good practices and innovation inside the activities. The partners will observe one another and transform the good practices and innovation to its own school curriculum.
Our project activities are not common but they are specific to our project theme. We don’t have any activities that we will not apply and practice with the students. We have planned the activities practicable and effective to reach our goals.
This project is complementary since it will develop students’ ICT skills, Artistic skills, Communication and Social skills, Problem solving skills, self-confidence and their social- acceptance. It is innovative since we will be able to monitor and evaluate the results in definite numbers. The survey will be applied again at the end, so we will see what results we will have achieved.
Analyzing the different perspectives of people in a variety of countries will help us better understand the issues and, through cooperation, find ways to combat.
Students will be actively involved in teaching / learning / training (LTTAs), collect data, and present cases from their local areas, services they can call to report discrimination issues, participate in roleplaying games, and interactive games to raise awareness of hazards and the unfairness of stereotypes and discriminatory behavior, will create campaign posters on "NO HATE Speech in Schools," "United as One under Sky European", create weekly video logs in the partner country, will participate in poetry and creative contests on the theme of European diversity, will take part in photo contests under the title "I am not you, but we can be together".
We have planned the activities in a logical way, so as to cover the most recurrent types of stereotyping:
Topic 1 (C1) - Stereotypical thinking and discrimination: common stereotypes related to nationalities; direct, indirect, multiple discrimination; forms of discrimination and their effects - xenophobia, homophobia, and transphobia.
Topic 2 (C2) - Gender and racial equality: common gender and racial stereotypes and their effects; ways of confronting them.
Topic 3 (C3) - Religious equality: common stereotypes related to religions and religious beliefs; effects of such stereotypes; analysis of cases in which stereotypes and discrimination against religions had terrible consequences
Topic 4 (C4) - Stereotypical thinking and discrimination in schools - how can we address and solve these issues?
