A la rencontre du patrimoine européen
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2016
Our School Bouligny is in Bouligny, a small rural town. There are 90 students for 6 staff.
First, the mining past of the region has left behind a multilingual and multicultural disadvantaged population; secondly, Lorraine is bordering other European countries such as Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany and therefore a source of work.
Since 2012, our school is dynamic and open to Europe: Awakening to languages and cultures in kindergarten and in all classes, eTwinning project, videoconferencing. Future prospects of mobility projects and strategic partnerships (Erasmus Consortium +).
The educational team is dynamic. Two participants want from this project with a view any training throughout life. Emilie Marchetti, director of the school, holds a Master MEF EEA. She wrote a memoir in 2013 entitled "Language awareness in kindergarten to build its global citizen identity." It encourages the eTwinning projects, is the founder and coordinates. Claire Simonazzi active teacher in search of educational innovations. She is very involved in eTwinning projects and has long classroom practices focusing on languages and cultures or inspired other countries. Both already have certain numeric skills.
As part of this mobility project, we seek a single activity: a week of English classes in a speaker country (United Kingdom, Edinburgh) and an introduction to Scottish culture (lectures, guided tours ...).
The needs identified are:
- Gaps in the English language that restrict the choice and number of partners and make it difficult eTwinning videoconference communication (objectives : open the project etwinning to English-speaking partners or speaking English and using English as a medium of exchange, common the group)
- Needs improvement and updating of language and cultural skills (objectives : modify / improve classroom practice and to open students on British and especially Scottish culture with authentic materials and tools).
- Improving human relations among pupils (target train staff and work with families and students on European opening and the importance of the values of openness of mind and tolerance (citizenship))
The impact and expected results are:
- Linguistic progress numbers of participants and ease / spontaneity in oral exchanges
- Changes in language teaching practices (in view of the British examples), including the assessment
- Development and expansion of eTwinning partnerships (open to English-speaking countries or European partners speak English), enroll in a strategic partnership Erasmus + KA2.
In the longer term, the school hopes to :
-Observe student progress on the language of schooling (via the results of evaluations of large section Eduscol)
- Increase the number of students achieving level A1 of the CEFR
- Positively affect the rate of students integrating a bilingual stream
- Enhance the school's image on a multilingual, multicultural dimension open to Europe and to share this experience (animation, forum ...)
