Roads to Equality


2005-2006



2005-2006 Development Work

  • During this school year we have focused part of our activities in the project Democracy at School with the Training Course for Reps and other activities.

  • We have formed our Living Together Workshop supported by the Center for Teachers and Resources of Logroño in which other teachers have taken part. The mainline of our work: Multiculturalism and Integration of Minorities. We have prepared didactic materials to work in the classes devoted to Tutorial and also in other subjects: Foreign Languages, Spanish Language, PE, Music, Art, etc.

  • We have tried to involve our foreign students in every activity of the school: Christmas, Santo Tomás, etc.

  • We have designed a Welcome Day for the pupils of the 1st Year of ESO with lots of activities devised to create a good atmosphere among the newcomers as well as a first conctact with the staff and services of the school.

  • This Training Course took place in November 2005, from 11th to 15th.

3. Democracy at School. Training Course for School Representatives

  • Pupils of 2nd ESO perform the play “ How not to hold a meeting” during the course.

  • After the play, the students fill in a form in which it is made clear the way a meeting should be held.

  • Later a notebook for writing the minutes of every meeting is handed in to every representative together with instructions of how to write a minute.



3. Democracy at School. Training Course for School Reprsentatives Difficulties in the communication

  • Juanjo Garnica convinced us all of how difficult it is to make oneself understood with this exercise: a pupil describes an image that another pupil draws on the blackboard. As you can imagine, both images turned out to be very different.



3. Democracy at School. Training Course for School Reprsentatives Activities of the second day.

  • The second day was devoted to a “Problem Solving” session.

  • To carry out this activity we had a sociologist, Eduardo Troncoso Mosquera, who proved to be really good with the students.

  • As it was a large group, we decided to divide the representatives into two more homogeneous groups for these activities.



3. Democracy at school.

  • Meetings with the Representatives in the second and third Term.

  • The idea of these meetings is to assess the improvement in the participation of the students in the process of decision-making at school and to compile their suggestions for next year.

  • Other activities.

  • We are still working in the design of activities to be used in the weekly hour of Tutorial as we want to promote in our students the awareness of how important it is to choose the representatives carefully, the qualities they must have and, at the same time, to improve the knowledge of the democratic process in our school.



4. Multiculturalism. Integration of minorities. Living together workshop.

  • The idea is to create an activity bank for the Counselling and Support Department and also for other Didactic Departments, in order to improve aspects of our living together at school, the integration of minorities and, in general, of all the foreign students we have at present.

  • We would like to make our students aware of the opportunity we have of making our experience richer by sharing it with those who have come to live to our Community and, at the same time, to help those who feel foreigners among us to be proud of their origin, language and customs.



4. Multiculturalism. Integration of minorities. Living together workshop.

  • We have made a leaflet with the Lingüistic File of our students, with information about the countries and languages we currently have at school. We have added basic conversational exchanges in every language.

    • We’ll provide every form with one of these leaflets at the beginning of the school year.
    • The students of different forms have helped in the process of investigation and preparation of the leaflet.
    • We understand this activity as a part of the process of getting to know one another.


4. Multiculturalism. Integration of minorities. Living together workshop. Festivities.

  • Christmas

  • Some students made mobiles with the word PEACE in several of the languages currently spoken in our school. At Christmas the mobiles were shown in one of the halls of the school.

  • A RAP based on the word PEACE said in several languages was composed and it was played at Christmas.

  • A contest of Christmas cards was held. The motto: “Images and words: how do you feel the process of living together in our school?” The idea was to see how our students felt in a school where we currently have students from twenty-two nationalities.

4. Multiculturalism. Integration of minorities. Living together workshop. Race to Equality through Art

  • Design of posters and murals about multiculturalism and race equality in collaboration with our partner schools.



4. Multiculturalism. Integration of minorities. Living together workshop. Race to Equality through Art

  • We have created a space of free expression for our students in which they can reflect their experiences and thoughts with respect to the way they feel together at class.

  • At the moment we have used long sheets of paper that we have placed on the walls of some classrooms so that the students can write and draw about what they feel and think.

  • We would like to display these murals in the hall of the school at the end of the school year.

4. Multiculturalism. Integration of minorities. Living together workshop. Race to Equality through Songs.

  • In this part of the project we have worked with songs that are about multiculturalism and solidarity, about how to live together in peace.

  • The songs have been worked by a group of 3rd year of ESO, who have prepared Power Point Presentations. Two of them have been translated into English to share them with our partner schools: “An Anthem not to win” by Lluís LLach and “Contaminate me” by Pedro Guerra. Other interesting songs (only Spanish version): La Casa por la ventana, by Joaquín Sabina, and “Extranjeros” by Pedro Guerra.

  • Final product: If our partners have studied some songs of this kind, we would like to compile them in a CD to be used as didactic materials in our Enlglish classes or in Tutorial.



4. Multiculturalism. Integration of minorities. Living together workshop. Race to Equality through Films.

  • We have chosen several films that treat some of the themes we are dealing with in our project. We have prepared questions about each film so that they can be used as didactic materials in some classes. We are sure these films will prove to be useful for the form teachers who want to use them in their weekly classes.

  • Some of the films we have worked with:

  • Billy Eliot, East is East, Edward Scissorhands, Bend it like Beckhan, Ae Fond Kiss, Barrio and Cartas de Alou.



4. Multiculturalism. Integration of minorities. Living together workshop. Race to Equality through Films.

  • During the second term we have focused on the film “Ae Fond Kiss”, by Ken Loach and a debate has taken place among students of all the partner schools.

  • In the photograph Atta Yaqub, one of the main characters of the film, at the interview that took place at Shawlands Academy in May 2005.



4. Multiculturalism. Integration of minorities. Living together workshop. Welcome Day Activities for 1st ESO.

  • These ACTIVITIES have been thought to create a good atmosphere among the students who come to school for the first time. They will be a good excuse to get to know one another as well as to get acquainted with the new school: building, services and staff.

  • The activities will be carried out by the Comenius Team and staff from several Didactic Departments that are part of the working group. Students of the Second Year of Bachillerato will help in the program acting as “tutors” of the younger students. Some parents have volunteered to help too.

  • The activities will take place the first and second day of the school year.

  • At present we are still designing activities to help our students to get to know one another and, in general, activities which promote a positive attitude at class.

  • One of the most important agreements to be reached during the work sessions: Classroom Rules, a number of norms that all students will commit themselves to follow at class.
