AS PROJECTS for Escuelas Embajadoras del Parlamento Europeo

My AS students are working really hard this year in an Ambassadors School Programme. Apart from an intense monthly work with the assigned activity booklet, we are preparing many activities for EUROPE DAY! Here are the next projects we will devote our efforts to:

LOVE, HATE & HOPE VIDEO PROJECT: Esta actividad requiere una grabación con el móvil breve (son opiniones cortas y al grano) en la que se exponen opiniones que responden a las siguientes preguntas ¿Qué te gusta, qué no te gusta y qué esperas de Europa (becas, trabajo, viajar sin pasaporte, cobertura sanitaria sin problemas). Se puede grabar a gente del instituto, amigos, familiares, en español, inglés, francés…y debe quedar muy clara la opinión de cada persona al manifestar si lo que comenta le gusta, no le gusta o es lo que espera  “I love….” “I hate….”, “I hope….”
MY EUROPE PROJECT: Exposición con maletas o cajas de cartón “My Europe” ¿Con qué bagaje viajo yo culturalmente o sentimentalmente cuando voy a otro país? ¿Qué habéis echado de menos de España y qué os habéis traído de vuestro viaje de estudios a Italia o de vuestro viaje a Londres? Viajar os ha cambiado y ahora vuestra "maleta" es diferente...Echad en ella lo que sois y dejadnos mirar qué contiene su interior.

Nelson Mandela and The Apartheid

After studying in class the Apartheid in South Africa, students are invited to learn more on the subject through the life of  Nelson Mandela, the first black president. His active role in order to get over with an unfair racist system made him win the Nobel Prize in 1993 as well as spend many years in prison...He left us in 2013 and will always be remembered for the good man he was.
