Impression of Slovenian teachers in LTT in Instituto Comprensivo Giuliano Giorgio from Montorio Romano, Italy

6 teachers from Slovenia atended in LTT in Instituto Comprensivo Giuliano Giorgio from Montorio Romano, Italy.

When reviewing their PEI (Individualized Educational Plan), we found that the document contained tools for a detailed and clear identification of the child under consideration. However, we found the document too broad, even though it contained an objective type of answers (you can choose the answers from the suggestions given). On the same day we visited Hadrian's villa, which impressed us with its magnificence and architecture. Our very experienced guide took us on a vivid journey through time.

At the school in Montorio Romano, we were very pleasantly welcomed. Maria Teodolinda Saturn's lecture brought us new knowledge about inclusion in Italy. At Istituto professionale per i servizi alberghieri e ristorazione - Ranieri Antonelli Costaggini in Rieti we saw a good practical example of inclusion; as we were served coffee by a special needs student of a catering school. We actively participated in two workshops at the Nerola School. In the dance workshop we learned an Italian traditional dance. A dance is a great enrichment of a class, so we have already included it at our school. In the second workshop, we baked traditional pastry with the youngest students. The baked good were presented to us as a gift at the farewell ceremony. During the musical, we saw an example how inclusion works in a local community and how students with disabilities participate in a play.

At the Public Institute for Deaf Students and Via Nomentana n ° 54 with a trainer specialized in linguistics and hearing impairment (Maria DeMonte), we were impressed with the professionalism and applicability of the lecturers' content. We especially enjoyed using the sensual sound board.

In Italy, inclusion has been present for decades. Therefore, it is embedded in the school system and daily life. On the environmental perspective, we have noticed that schools use a high number of plastic items for the dining. We must all strive to limit the use of plastics for the health of our planet. After the meal, student did not clean up after themselves, which is a missed chance for teaching them independence.

We felt very welcome in the LTT, which is well designed and implemented. Martina was an excellent host, giving us the culinary and touristic experience of Italy, of course, in addition to the broad professional knowledge she was willing to share with us.

Thank you deeply from our hearts for your warm hospitality.

"SADNESS is a Grumpy Cry - baby" - Primary school Oton Iveković, Zagreb, Croatia

…Sadness is a Grumpy Cry-baby…” says one student note from the workshop about emotions held in Class 6a. 

The students watched the cartoon Inside Out. Afterwards, they were divided into five groups. Each group had the task to describe the characters’ behaviour, emotions and consequences of their behaviour. The children represented the characters through pantomime and acting.

The students were very interested in the film and the theme, and here are some more of their comments:
“…Happiness belittled Sadness…”
“…Anger shouts all the time… sometimes it was necessary…”
“…Fear is worried, sensitive, protective…”
“…Happiness always tries to find a way to cheer someone up…”

The workshop was held by the Social Pedagogist, Jadranka Bašić Parić, and student assistant, Jelena Žanko Milanković.
