In this project you work for SGDS goal 3:
These are the questions and activities during the project:
- Who Am I?
- Discovering my family roots and personal skills ( = Gardner intelligences)
- What Do I Want To Be When I become an adult?
- Deceloping a dream. How to achieve my goal
This project is for any age group. It is also suitable for EFL students at the basic level.
- Project manager/coordinator: Stellan Kinberg
The project is a short version of:the “Who Am I” program.
- The Roots project author: Epi Sepulveda
- “Who Am I” program creator and developer: Patricia aWeeg (USA), Odd de Presno and Anne Tove Vestfossen (Norway)
The project supports the students to identify and appreciate themselves within their own family lineage.
They will be encouraged to gather information about their heritage from various sources (parents and if possible, grand parents).
We all know our own countries very well, but what about the “others”?
Our companions come from countries, near or/and far.
The students are invited to ask other students to know more.
The global dialog is the main focus of the project. It is critical that kids have enough time dedicated to the dialog. So teachers need to guide their students answering the questions.
Intrapersonal and other skills
All students have their specific potentials.
Growing up, they discover their potentials, intelligences and skills.
The teachers can help their students with this.
It is also important to develope intrapersonal skills, in other words, growing empathy, like e.g. recognizing their own reactions and getting better in face, voice and behavioural recognition. With improved intrapersonal skills they become better in interpersonal relations.
It is known that student with good interpersonal skills succeed better in school and later at work, as they become better avoiding misunderstanding and conflicts.
During phase 1, the students get time for an introduction about intrapersonal, interpersonal and other skills.
