The EAR training experience in Catalonia, Spain: Success and challenge

The goal of EAR training is to enhance the citizenship competences of secondary school students through the dialectics, and theater and to achieve this goal one previous step is the training of teachers.

This training has been very welcomed by secondary school teachers and youth educators in our country. Our secondary schools have a high level of cultural diversity, and students with specific social and education needs, and teachers and educators don’t feel enough trained to face these challenges.


Implementation of the EAR training in Italy

In Italy the process of teachers’ recruitment for EAR project started in May 2019 and it successfully ended in September 2019 with the involvement of 35 practicing teachers and 135 pre-service teachers. These latter were students participating to EAR within the framework of their Initial Teacher Training at the University of Florence. The training of the pre-service teachers took place at the University whilst the training sessions for practicing teachers have ben carried out in their respective schools where later the EAR methodology has been implemented, namely the “Istituto Comprensivo Empoli Est” in Empoli (a small town in the area of Florence) and the “Istituto Comprensivo Ghiberti” in Florence.
