Project

  1. 1. Project's Details... Short description The theme of the project is ‘Writing and Drawing Tales’. The scope of the project will include children aged from 7 to 11. The chosen language is English. The main idea is that pupils form a team; write a tale together then draw the tale by creating a series of 5-10 drawings. Children will exchange drawings with partner schools and they will write stories about each other schools’ drawings. The main objective of the project is to provide an opportunity for primary teachers and their pupils to establish a multilateral partnership and to develop a joint creative project. Sustainability of skills and dispositions students develop via the project will be a priority for continuation and sustainability. We will improve the communication among people coming from different cultures with the help of the project. We are going to give information about our values dealing with the stories, paintings, drawings customs and celebrate the diversities. Age of pupils 7-11 Aims 1-Through the project, children will be able to describe their insights, into their own cultures and will be able to learn about others cultures and to search for the social values that make up countries cultures. 2- We will see how the colours will be changed, how stories will be changed about the same drawings and we will learn to respect the diversities. 3-The project will improve students’ foreign language competences, twinspace, forums, blogs, emails and Powerpoint - flash presentations. 4.The development of creative thinking skills and the practical use and application of skills and knowledge. 5.Self-Management (Participation, Sharing, Cooperation and Teamwork) ability development. 6.Self-Management (Responsibility) skills development. 7.Self-Management (Respect for Diversity) skills development. 8.Using Information Technology skills and multi media for efficient, effective and innovative communication. 9.Communication skills developement, verbal, non verbal, written, spoken, dramatic and artistic 10.Using multi Language skills in the right context and to good effect Work process Planning: Due to the creative nature of the project there is freedom and scope for pupils to plan work and to follow their own lines of enquiry. Pupils will follow a process which enables them – under the topic of writing tales to gather,generate and organise ideas, implement ideas, evaluate, and communicate ideas, an important aspect will be to continuously learn from investigations and to share learning with others via multimedia and certain directed tasks. Implementation: Teachers form a group of 10 pupils. These pupils will make a team and write a story together independently. Then they will draw the tale which they have written and describe the tale with 5-10 pictures (only drawings not paintings). All groups will keep the tales which they have written, but send the drawings’ scanned copies to the ICT coordinator of the project. The Coordinator will work on the drawings, then send the pictures to the other countries by email. Please check the attachment ICT.swf Then, each group will print the received drawings, paint them and write their own stories about those pictures.
  2. 2. Evaluation: Different stories will be written about the same pictures, same pictures will be painting different colours and all countries will add their own cultural motives to them. At the end, we will produce an e-book which will be published.
