This scenario is inspired by paintings, texts and blog “What are men to rocks and mountains?” from Europeana.
Students will research the mountainous region of their homeland through the perspective of different school subjects to find out what “speaking stones” can teach them. Divided into groups, they are assigned roles according to their favourite subjects. Each student in a team has a different role (a different school subject) and is taking a different perspective of the topic mountains. After a jigsaw activity, they present their work their peers in class. All the material is put in an interactive presentation on Genially.
This LS is planned to be a school interdisciplinary project but can be adapted to an English class.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage (Rerun)” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
