This was an on-going, cross-cultural project consisting of several min- lessons taught over the course of the school year, designed and taught by Ilijan Kuzmanovic (Republika Srbska) and Jeff Renihan (US), who met at the 2014 Centropa Summer Academy in Sarajevo.
Course lesson taught in: when filling in for absent colleagues (happening with high frequency —after all it’s Italy
This lesson plan can be adapted to nearly every context and every age group because of the unique and strong message of the video “Survival in Sarajevo”.
Summary of goals: to broaden the perception of my students about:
· PEACE - what is the significance of it
Subject : “We know ourselves only to the extent we have been tested” (W.Szymborska).
Human attitudes towards different life situations.
In this cross-cultural project with students in North Carolina and Slovakia, our students are paired with a penfriend based on shared interests. The NC students wrote letters, but penfriends will get to know each other through electronic correspondence, as well. So each class can get to know something about our towns, we exchanged videos made by others about our cities – we sent the introduction to Greensboro sent by a local college.
