What is "Europa macht Schule" (Europe meets schools)?
"Europa macht Schule" gives you the opportunity to realise a small school project about your home country. You visit a local school class and meet pupils as well as the class teacher. You choose a subject regarding your home country and carry out a project with your teacher in class. Thus you can turn your stay in Germany into something special. You experience your host country's culture at firsthand! Furthermore, you improve your language and presentational skills.
How to put together a project?
Election publicity on British TV in a politics class? French and German fairytales in comparison? Polish philosophy as a comic strip? You choose the subject for your project together with your responsible teacher at school. History – Politics – Language – Food – Music – Sport – You can choose any subject you find important and interesting!
And how can you turn it into a project?
Here too, there are no limits for your imagination. You can rehearse a stage play, analyse newspaper articles, design comic strips, shoot a film or... whatever! The most important thing is that your project is creative and suitable for the age of the pupils. They should be able to actively take part in the project. Thus everybody can experience the richness of European cultures.
What happens when?
Who can take part in the programme?
The programme is offered to European students of from every field of study.
Will I be all alone in class?
No! The teacher stays with you in the class when you carry out your project and supports you in the planning of the project.
How much effort is the project?
Your project will consist of three to five visits to the school. Additionally you will have preparatory meetings with the teacher. At the end you and your class will present the project at the closing event and you will write a short report about it.
Will there be costs?
No, there will be no additional costs for you. After having finished your project you will receive a small lump sum for your expenses and as a thank you for your work.
