This learning scenario aims to raise awareness of the immigration, in general terms, and make students conduct research on their own past, discovering more about their ancestors, who are also part of European history.
Language and Culture of Origin
This learning scenario was created after having a look at Europeana’s Migration Collection. The lesson is aimed at ELCO STUDENTS living in Charleville-Mezieres, France. The Language and Culture of Origin (ELCO) curriculum covers nine countries: Algeria, Croatia, Spain, Italy, Morocco, Portugal, Serbia, Tunisia and Turkey.
It is implemented on the basis of bilateral agreements based on a European directive of 25 July 1977, on the schooling of children of migrant workers, so the students will study their own history and past.
Where do their ancestors come from and what are their origins? With this scenario, we will focus mainly on the effects and impacts of migration on individuals and societies, with its political, social and economical reasons. We know that migration always occurs due to different reasons but, as humans, we need to find the best way to live together in harmony and this time the students will figure out their own stories from their ancestors.
With this scenario, the students will be encouraged to work in groups, share their ideas and experiences, learn from each other in the form of peer learning, create some innovative materials using ICT tools. Finally, it is a scenario that aims to develop the students’ language skills, both oral and written ones, as well as their critical thinking ability.
