Humanismus in einem modernen Europa
Date du début: 1 févr. 2016, Date de fin: 31 déc. 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Spohn-Gymnasium, a school that is committed to humanism, places the critical, creative, experiencing human being at its centre. Young people, who we prepare for life, are to experience and find their place in Europe competently. We want them to unfold their potentials and even help them shape the continent to the better. By encountering the antic world and European Renaissance, our students perceive Europe in a particular and unique way. We hope that we will be able to sharpen and contextualise their view even further. By deepening our staff's insight in other cultures and improving their command of foreign languages we enable our students to communicate abroad successfully. Thus, we stimulate the pupils' interest in fathoming and experiencing the continent more profoundly themselves. Participating colleagues will travel to Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom in order to study Renaissance art and to brush up their language skills, which is of utmost importance when teaching and conveying a foreign language authentically. In particular the pronunciation of foreign language teachers may deteriorate without occasional trips to the countries where the respective languages are spoken. Consequently, we will be able to meet the demand of our humanistic profile as pupils will communicate more successfully.We want our pupils to assume responsibility and take the initiative, in particular in a European context, which we will apply in our project "Schule als Staat" in the near future (In this project the whole school in cooperation with a neighbouring grammar school, will turn into a state, with a government, a currency, companies, a constitution and foreign policy, which will be run by pupils). This will be carried out in the light of a cooperation of countries in a modern Europe, which is still aware of its cultural roots. Participating colleagues will deepen their insight into European politics and share their knowledge and experience in the project "Schule als Staat" and by enabling students to participate in and shape the organisation of our school. Furthermore, we will benefit from teaching concepts of Scandinavian countries in the neutral field of science, where Europe shares its findings and moves on.Moreover, European perspective will influence the way our school is managed, as a grammar school emphasising ancient languages always has to align itself with current affairs in order to legitimise its special position.Modern humanism both fosters people but also demands their intellectual effort, in particular in their respective social structures. Participating teachers will take part in outdoor experience courses, which the special group of our highly gifted students will profit from in particular. We have committed ourselves to fostering this group, however all other pupils are free to enrol in the outdoor education courses we develop for the highly gifted. We will orient ourselves on countries which are more advanced in the field of individualising curricula and fostering the individual demand, thus stimulating motivation and reducing conflicts. Other countries are more advanced there. In the entire context of "Schule als Staat", by new impetus in school management and in the encounter with European culture abroad, we will knit our school community more tightly and align it with the current demands of a changing Europe, which is still upholding its cultural and moral values. Thus, we hope, we will be able to contribute to a successful future of our continent.
