    Retracing Myths - between magic and reality through Europe's traditions and culture

    Our project focused mainly on students with different needs, including either the most gifted students, the students with some different types of disabilities or the students with social problems. The students benefited of outgoing mobilities during the project whose results offered them more competencies necessary for efficient work activities and communication in a foreign language. The project dealt with retracing myths from all over Europe, finding what myths represent for each country, rediscovering national values, traditions. During the project every participating school prepared visits to mythological places in their country, and also performances with students about traditions, songs, dances, dishes, costumes and national customs. All the activities have been finalized with the creation of a common web site, a web site of the Italian partner, a common blog and 2 local blogs, a DVD with information, pictures and videos from the project meetings, student mobilities, performances and festivities, 2 newsletters with activities from the 2 years of project, a common brochure with reprezentative myths and traditions from each country and a brochure of the Turkish partner with myths from their country. The project has raised the students' interest for subjects referred to sometimes as boring: History, Geography, Civics, foreign language learning. And we did this using more pleasant activities and at the same time offering the less fortunate ones a chance to gain experience for their future jobs and for seeing that there is always an alternative to their choice sometimes of abandoning school and that by staying at school they can have the same rights and opportunities as the other ones. Out of respect for the others' culture and values, we promoted exploration into the partners' folklore including the greatest myths as examples of the moral principles of each country/region. The unwritten laws of every nation make the moral code of the European countries.
