With the acute refugee crisis being at the forefront of the world’s attention, first-year students provide solutions and create timelines to help refugees be successfully integrated into our society, using the "Read Think Write" application. The aim was not only to offer ways people can help but also to highlight the potential benefits for every community.
After treating the issue of duty and reading stories about people who died in the line of duty, first-year students created an outline of the terrorist attack in Carcassonne, using Google Jamboard. The focus was on the social sensitization of students regarding terrorism and the voluntary sacrifice of a person to save others.
Focusing on the massive flows of refugees and migrants from Syria, Iraq and East Africa, second-year students analyzed the problems, difficulties, and harsh living conditions that refugees face. The students used Google Jamboard to give an account of Muzon and Mesfin’s pursuit of any path available to a safer and more promising life, after fleeing war and persecution in their countries of origin.
After dealing with the topic of leadership, third-year students were encouraged to created mind maps about the characteristics of effective leaders, using the Canva platform. The students presented the qualities of good leaders and the character traits they consider important
The profile of a popular and effective leader was also illustrated. The biography of Martin Luther King, a leader of the American civil rights movement, was created by the students, using Google Jamboard.
The students were encouraged to write a poem (in free verse) entitled “I have a dream, too!” in groups or individually on Google Docs, as an answer to M. L. King’s famous speech. The results will amaze you!
