The second module of the New Educations in Promoting Transversal Skills project focuses on Civic Education. This module was designed by the teachers, staff and students of Manisa Social Sciences High School in Manisa, Turkey. In this module learners learn what civic education means and why it is so important to raise awareness and sensitivity for it. They will also learn to be conscious, thoughtful, considerate towards citizenship, democracy and human rights as well as the protection and application of human rights. Finally they learn how they can change their attitude in order to be a good citizen. This module was successfully deployed in the project schools during the first months of 2017.
The module was divided in a number of themes, each of them supported by a specially designed activity.
The outcomes of these activities and workshops had various forms : brochures, newsletters, pamphlets, posters, photographs, video diaries, questionnaires, etc. The brochure and course module will soon be made available on the web site.
