We used the material sent by the European Committee (Greek department) to play games about the capital cities of the European countries and their historical monuments.
In order to foster better understanding and improve pupils’ knowledge of the European Union Mrs. Anna Savvatopoulou, teacher of Greek language and literature, integrated the same material sent by the European Committee (Greek department) in her Greek language lessons. She, also, have worked on:
THE EUROPEAN UNION : THE IDEA, THE PURPOSES, THE PEOPLE
During a 6-hour greek language course, we studied texts written in 2000-2006 on:
- a) the idea of a united but diverse- in geography and culture- union
- b) the fear of losing national identity and language
- c) the symbols on the coins of euro
- d) the European mobility activities for young people in education and work
- e) the 14.000.000 migrants and their offer in the economic life but yet their lack of political and professional rights
- f) the human rights such as the freedom of speech, women’s rights, the right to work and the protection of environment.
Finally the students created a simple guiding text (200-300 words) named: “Τhe European union: what it is and what it does” based on new booklets and information sent to our school for our participation to the programme of Erasmus+.
Thus, students came in contact with new ideas on Europe and participated very well
in the activities, though the texts of their book were quite demanding.
