Partners' Institution:
Teatro Stabile di Grosseto
Project's period (from/to):
02 November 2017 - 12 November 2018
Activity concerned:
IO2 - Video Tutorial to Tackle Early School Leaving Through Theatrical Laboratories
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 video that should assume the form of a "travel diary" and encompasses all the experiences performed in the OFF-Book project and share the experiences of all users (students, teachers and professionals) from the organizational phase until the closing of the experience.
Description of activities carried out:
Teatro stabile di Grosseto, in cooperation with University of Siena and Pixel, contributed to a production of a detailed calendar of activities in order to identify the different partners' roles, deadlines and responsibilities.

Teatro Stabile di Grosseto, in cooperation with University of Siena and Pixel, contributed to the development of the following templates:
- IO2.A Guidelines to implement the theatrical laboratories
The main aim of the laboratories is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the method illustrated in
the Guidelines with specific purposes: inclusion, improvement of the ability to listen, coding of new
educational approaches in european school and, of course, preventing early school leaving.
During the implementation of the theatrical laboratory we can always refer to the Guidelines.

- IO2.B – Guidelines to create the chapter’s contents [DOC]
Guidelines to produce the national videos
Each partner must produce a national video documenting the implementation of Theatrical
Laboratories as described in the Teachers’ guidelines with a special focus on the methods and "best
practices" presented in the chapter 3 and on the 15 tabs listed in the chapter 4 of the guidelines.
The main aims of the national video are to show the effectiveness of the theatrical labs to:
- improve teachers/students relationship
- support multicultural integration
- restore oxygen to the educational school system

- IO2.C - Guidelines to produce the video tutorials for the tabs
Each partner must produce 5 videos documenting the implementation of the 5 tabs listed in the
chapter 4 of the Teachers’ guidelines and prepared by the respective national partner.
These videos must be clear and effective.
It's recommended to edit the videos always showing a parallel between a demonstration filmed
externally to the lab with few students (or even actors) to clear every specific detail and the real
exercises realized by the groups of students actually involved in the Theatrical Laboratories. Of
course, the debriefing section can be filmed only with students.

During the second meeting of the project in Klaipeda Teatro Stabile di Grosseto introduced to all project's partners the template of the video and presented the strategies to use in order to get the result of the project.
