Grow From Seeds
Theatre Education program for primary school teachers and their pupils in the field of intercultural education.
The aim of Grow From Seeds is to design an education program that will provide new learning opportunities for primary school teachers and their pupils in the field of intercultural education.
By fostering intercultural dialogue, the project responds to the priorities of the European Parliament to challenge extremism through social inclusion, active citizenship and student empowerment.
Who does it benefit?
For the students, the education modules will be based on writing and acting with a program animated by their teachers, with the help of guest speakers. The students will gain an increased capacity for empathy and understanding of different cultures.
For teachers, the 5-day training (in Ireland, under the direction of the Ministry of Education) wil offer quality teaching and learning activities focused on the development of knowledge, skills and values to integrate methodologies in their classes.
