Project Summary

This is an education project mainly focused on “IMPROVING BOOK READING, TRASNFORMING KNOWLEDGE INTO PRACTICAL ACTIVITIES” and leading our students to read more, to be active more by participating in Arts, ICT, Media, Literary, Social and Volunteering activities. So its move is “ EDUCATED AND ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP”. It is developed by participation of schools from TR,IT,UK,ES,PL
Much more than radio, television, computers or smart phones, books are clearly recognised, as a fundamental tool for access to reading and language, these being the foundations for personal fulfilment, economic development and social ties.
According to a research made by American Academy of Art& Science; which made and international comparison of percentage of Adult and Teen “ include people ages 14–64. Books read were for pleasure, not for work or school” population having read at least one book in the previous 12 months; The UK:64% ; POLAND :%56; SPAIN: %54; ITALY: %54; TURKEY:%21.
The completion of the project will lead our students to read more, to be active more by participating in Arts, ICT, Media, Literary, Social and Volunteering activities.
Our students will be active readers and they will gain skills for how to transform a book into their own products.
We will struggle to make books important again since the books are the true source for true information.
The project will promote to have better literary pleasure, to face with arts and to recognise cultural treasure between our students
The project include two types of action. On the one side students will read books (NOVELS, PHLOSOPHY, POETRY, BIOGRAPHY) on the other side they will develop activities such as SCENARIO, WRITING ESSAYS, CREATING POETRY MAGAZINE, TAKING SHORT MOVIES. Every partner will read on their own national books and when they come together in the LTTA meetings, they will meet them together and produce their activities together. Activities and products will be multi national.
After the beginning of the project, we will set up project clubs in the schools and will announce the students to join the club. Minimum 50 students will be involved. These 50 students will be divided into 5 teams as; Literature Team, ICT teams, Culture Team, Magazine Team, Arts Team. These team will be given tasks for a curtain duration regards to stages and activities of the project. All teams will work and support the main body of the project under supervision the teachers. There are 4 L/T/T/A in two years and 2 T/M one in the beginning and one at the end. Teachers will lead the students to join all kind of activities (Book reading, Creation of scenario, magazine, taking short movie; etc./ the usual side activities like; preparing Erasmus+ corner, taking photos and videos to put into digital monitor, logo contest, joining seminars, preparing traveller manuals, etc. )
Our project is prepared mainly for the students and all the stages are designed for them. Teachers are added into as supervisor and beneficiaries. Administrative staff are the other participants. Parents and local community will be the side beneficiaries since they will be the target group of while we are disseminating our project activities, outputs and results.
An important impact will be provided to the participant by the project on the direct and indirect. The possibility to be in direct contact with students and teachers from other countries and especially working together for reaching common goals will lead to positive changes within institutions involved.
It is aimed to improve students’ social, personal and inter-personal skills. Peer education will be stimulated increasing the credibility students have with their peers, fostering the feeling of belonging to the big European community. By participating at workshops that stimulates creativity they will boost their self-esteem. Team working skills and ICT skills will be developed, making students to be better prepared for the future labour market. Getting students involved in a wide range of activities – book reading, designing and creating book, magazine, taking scenario and writing essays – will help them discover new skills and make them more active in their daily life.
Teachers will exchange experience in organizing local activities and international projects. They will explore and learn about other educational systems, pedagogical and methodological materials and tools, about the inclusive approach and about how to make the educational process more effective according to the European standards.
The partnership will encourage cooperation between schools and nations, the exchange of ideas and pedagogical approaches leading to the creation of a trans-national network increasing the schools’ European dimension and prestige.
Democracy will be promoted and stereotypes will be broke down by involving disadvantaged participants and migrant families to participate at the activities.
