Activity concerned:
IO1 - Guideline for Teachers on Performing Arts to Promote Integration at School

Objectives of activities carried out:
The main OFF-BOOK methodological approach is to encourage the building of a new interaction between teachers and students putting the focus on the dialogue among individuals and not on the traditional vertical teaching methods, thus breaking up the still typical logic of traditional School education and dynamics within the class communities based on the overwhelming impact of personal opinions and judgments by individuals on other individuals.

The specific objective of this Intellectual Output is to produce a Guideline for Teachers on the use of Performing Arts to promote integration at school providing school Teachers with a comprehensive picture on how to make an effective use of Performing Arts and Theatrical Laboratories with their students, in order to IMPACT on school communities needs by:
• Enhancing a new dialogue pattern among teachers and students
• Enhancing students' skills with special reference to soft skills
• Enhancing the dialogue among students with special concern to multicultural classes in order to combat prejudices and discrimination practices
• Combating ESL as a consequence of the shift in teachers/students relation from vertical to horizontal
• Contributing to teachers' curricula development with special reference to the role of facilitator in non formal education environments
• Improving schools' capacity of planning, managing, implementing and evaluating new educational paths with special reference to multiculturalism favouring civil coexistence
