The work in schools with the Activity starts after 1st TPM meeting. In order to cooperate better, we worked together online wit teachers to agree what we are going to do.
Teachers from all partner schools work together to develop innovative ways to improve literacy skills, such as critical reading and functional reading. They create texts and reading assignments related to our project theme in order to improve and encourage better understanding of texts and through that get to know the culture of our partners. All texts, assignments, lesson descriptions will be collected and published as an e-brochure at the end of the project. It will be available for everybody on our project website.
Creating and conducting assignments in schools, writing and sharing lesson descriptions.
Frequency of lessons: 1 lesson in week (part of native language and/or literature lesson. BUT it is very efficient if we could cooperate with history, science or math teachers, to teach students to see that literacy isn't only reading/understanding fictional text, but also scientific, historical, math texts.
For inspiration PISA 2009 test assignments.
The coordinator gives basic information and detailed instructions (teachers' guide: how, why, what, to teach and assess.)
OCTOBER 2017 is testing month, students were given feedback about their work, taught how to find correct answers, read with pencil, read aloud, read with fingers, etc. Also, how to see behind written lines, teach how to answer the question "why?"
Literacy skills developing through comprehensive/critical reading - we improve reading skills such as: summarizing, sequencing, inferencing, comparing and contrasting, drawing conclusion, self-questioning, problem-solving, relating background knowledge, distinguishing between fact and opinion, finding the main idea, important facts, and supporting details. This methodology is chosen to improve reading and media literacy skills, critical thinking. It helps students to learn about each others culture through texts/movies.
