EU und Sprachen
Start date: 01 Jul 2016, End date: 30 Jun 2018 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Our motivation for this project was that we came to realise that our students do not know how life was before the EU. Therefore, they sometimes do not see the benefits and often only talk about the negative aspects presented to them in the news. We have decided we wanted to give our students a more objective point of view and provide them with information that is not taken from tabloids. Furthermore, we want them to know other European countries and think that languages and getting to know people from there is the key to it. At the moment we are two extremely motivated teachers, Mag. Carola Rapberger, Mag. Christoph Heher, who want to start the project, however we have already talked to colleagues who want to join in the future and who are going to participate in some of the project activities. Out headmaster is also involved and promised to help. Mag. Carola Rapberger is an English, History and Political Studies teacher, who had the chance to visit Brussels with chosen Viennese teachers and all the European institutions there, as well as meeting EU politicians from all parties and different countries. The visit gave her the chance to network with a lot of European institutions which will be helpful carrying out the project.Mag. Christoph Heher is a German and Geography and Economics teacher and speaks B2 English. During the last years he has carried out a variety of projects (i.e: our school company, theatre workshops, internships for students). He is aware of the challenges of a project leader. A two week CLIL course is planned in Ireland, which should prepare the participants methodically and didactically for the planned bilingual teaching. This course plays an essential part in reaching our goal, as it will enrichen our language competence, our teaching methods and our intercultural competence. Furthermore, the discourse with other course participants will also advance our intercultural, linguistic and methodical competence. On the long run, our school wants to focus on bilingual teaching of EU topics in all branches and year groups. The CLIL course participants will function as multiplier for the rest of the teachers in our school and will organise teachers training within school.
