At first we will have a welcome section and ice breakers with students and teachers. (Name
Bingo). Each person needs to complete their bingo sheet
by meeting a selection of different people who fit in each category of the grid. Bingo sheets
out to each person and give them a pen, and then send
them off to mingle and find people that fit in the gaps. Each player can only use another
person once on their sheet, so the game can either finish
when someone collects a name for the entire grid).
Then, we will introduce the school and the environment and give presentation of our culture
and country to partner schools. We will make a
powerpoint presentation about our country, make a big table with lots of traditional food, we
will give some information about our country’s life style
and religion and political view as we believe laicism.
For making interactions between students we will make a board and put envelopes for all the
participants’ name so they can write notes and give
presents to their secret friend.
A drawing section about different people from us “We are the same” will be held as we want
to improve students’ empathy towards people that are
different from themselves. Our visual art teacher will play some music and videos from
different part of the world and different types of people and
wants from the students to draw pictures and put themselves in these people’s shoes.
Students will show their pictures to other students and explain
their thoughts to other students. At the end of the section there will be a conclusion part so
that the students can talk about emphathy, culture, health,
money, religion etc.
In our visiting section we will have a visit for Special need students school. In this section
students will gain behavioural and emotional experience,
they will spend time with special need students and communicate with them and try to teach
them something as peer teaching activity.
Also, we will make a panoramic tour of Izmir and taste delicious food and have a ferry
journey from Karşıyaka to Alsancak and visit Atatürk Museum.
Finally, we will organise visits to ancient city Ephesus, The Virgin Mary’s house and Sirince
that is also a historical village.
What we consider to be ‘normal’ behaviour in one country can be entirely different in another.
Cultural awareness is all about recognising and
understanding that we all have different values shaped by our diverse cultural backgrounds.
By the help of the activities, we will show it is important
to be respectful to others and accepting people’s opinions and develop more successful
personal and professional relationships and benefit from
cultural diversity. So we aim to enlarge the students’ “concept” of culture, widen their
perspective and allow them to become actively involved in the
learning process. As we believe art and design stimulates creativity and imagination, we will
have a drawing section. In this section students will have
experience of understanding and responding to the world. It will enable children to
communicate what they see, feel and think through the use of
colour, texture, form, pattern and different materials and processes. Also, they will have a
chance to compare their imagination to real life by visiting
the special needs students school. In addition to this, students increase their critical
awareness of the roles and purposes of art and design in
different times and cultures. Finally by the visits of historic and ancient cities they will be able
to imagine the ancient world and culture.
