Fifth Day- Planning Future Activities

The fifth day of our encounter (24th of April 2015) was spent planning the activities to be done by both teachers and students. We gave a final touch to the requirements for the PowerPoint presentations to be done by students until the students’ meeting in October 2015.

We decided that each team should work on the book on stereotypes and on the lesson plans until the third teachers’ meeting in Lithuania, in September 2015.

Once again we filled-in an assessment questionnaire on the project meeting. The results were analysed and discussed at a group level. They were made available online by the Portuguese team coordinator.

At the end of the day, the hosts gave certificates of attendance to all teachers present at the second meeting of the project Building a New Europe against Stereotypes.

Third Day- Planning the Book on Stereotypes

The third day of our project meeting was dedicated to planning the book on stereotypes which would be the work of the teachers involved in the present project. 

We all agreed on the following book structure:

Introduction  

-definitions given to the concepts of stereotypes and prejudgements by renowed researchers in the domain.

Chapter 1- Literature Review

-studies, articles and books written by Romanian, Portuguese, Turkish and Lithuanian researches on the topic of stereotypes, prejudgements, discrimination and fight against them at school and society level

Chapter 2Presentation and Analysis of the Stereotypes Questionnaire

Chapter 3Presentation and Analysis of the Cultural Questionnaire

Chapter 4Lesson Plans

-lesson plans on stereotypes created by each partner

-the lesson plans will be sent to the partner school where a certain stereotype is widespread among school members (for example a lesson plan on “Romania is a Democratic Country” will be sent to the other schools, to be applied during History or Social Science classes)

-photos taken during the classes on stereotypes

-students’ and teachers’ opinions

Conclusions

The day ended with an evening visit to the nearby city of Samsun, located on the Black Sea shore.

Second Day- Analysing and Working

The second of our project meeting (April 22nd, 2015) was dedicated to presenting and analysing the results of the questionnaires which had been distributed to students, teachers and non-teaching staff belonging to the partener schools. 

We observed that adults had more prejudgements than teenagers, but knew more about the culture, history and geography of the project countries.
