For years our school has been encouraging intercultural communication and cooperation between students and teachers of different nationalities as well as an active participation in a democratic Europe. This has been primarily achieved by regular project weeks which are organized by the different European schools that are members of the network “International Education”. In addition to this and from the experiences gained during these project weeks, our network schools have developed a curriculum, “European Citizenship”, which has been taught at our school as a two-year bilingual course (English) for some time now. The project described in this application aims at motivating and enabling young members of staff to teach European Citizenship in ways that meet the requirements of teaching a bilingual subject in a modern and motivating way. Thus, we also hope to improve the quality of our work by learning about new methods and by sharing knowledge and experiences with teachers from different countries during the CLIL course. Moreover, meeting teachers of different nationalities might also serve as a starting point for new projects. To start with and because our school is comparatively small, we have decided to have one teacher take the CLIL course this summer. We have chosen a teacher who is suitable for this because of the subjects she teaches, her general commitment to the school and her strong interest in international cooperation as well as the fact that she has been teaching the respective subject European Citizenship for the first time herself this academic year. The experiences gained in the summer course will be made available to the school’s staff at the beginning of the academic year 2015/16. The experiences gained and new methods learned will then be integrated and put to the test in the European Citizenship classes (years eight and nine) from the beginning of the new academic year on. The regular exchange between the teachers involved and the feedback of our students will then help to evaluate the outcome so that it can be used to sustain and/or improve the quality of the respective subject. On a “European level” the experiences gained by our school can also be made available to the teachers of the other network schools “International Education” to integrate them in their own work in a profitable way as well as to encourage them to use the opportunities available (e.g. international summer classes) to improve their work and motivate more members of their staff to get involved in international projects. In the summer class described above the teacher involved was able to expand her knowledge regarding the methodology and didactics of teaching a bilingual subject (i, e. European Citizenship) in a modern and motivating way. The experiences gained during the course were then immediately put to the test and evaluated after the summer break. Students' feedback proved their responses to be very positive ones. The experiences made were also made available to other members of staff who are involved in teaching European Citizenship. The project in general, the CLIL- summer course as well as the work done with the students in class and on a one-week student exchange, proved, that the peaceful exchange between different nationalities (in our case teachers and students) is a very valuable and enriching experience and especially important in today's Europe.
