Role of women


Activity I. The students will discuss about the roles of the male and female members of their families, they will write down the differences in the distribution of domestic works, if any, as well as the jobs differences or those concerning the time they are allowed to return home. Later we will pool and compare the results and wrote down the most usual patterns.

Activity II. The students will analyse the role of women in the belief system of their culture: religion, myths, folklore… What role have they played in our tradition? What contributions have they made to our culture? Besides, we will ask the students to mention characteristics that, in their opinion, have women. Later, we will ask the female students to know if they recognise those characteristics as theirs and if they find similarities between them and those women present in our traditional stories. 

Activity III. During the meeting with the other students we will show them our conclusions. Afterwards we will watch the film Twilight or Fifty shades of Grey. We will analyse the most harmful stereotypes and look for different ways to change them. We will compare gender equality in each country and we will study the measures that had led to the most degrees of equality.

Activity IV. We will analyse the most popular women’s magazines: Vogue, Cosmopolitan… and we will write down the most common physical characteristics of the women who appear. Later we will draw a woman with all these characteristics and we will compare her with the women we find on the streets or in the high school. Do these magazine women represent us? 

Activity V. Is gender violence only a problem in our country? This activity is expected to be done with our international partners. The host country will be Spain because of its catholic tradition and macho culture. Every country will bring the numbers of women killed so far this year and the host country will arrange a talk with a social agent who would talk about the laws, what kind of help women receive as well as the prevention policies, etc We will talk about women development in our society, the laws that have improved her progressive emancipation, we will have workshops to analyse the song lyrics from the point of view of gender equality and we will also analyse the role of women in publicity. 

Activity VI. We are going to investigate about important women from each country and from different fields in order to elaborate a brief history of the woman in Europe. The results will be shown in each school to get the women contribution better known.

Activity VII. We will elaborate a table with the main physical and physiological differences between women and men of different ages. The students will discover the early similarity during the first years and how the hormonal activity produces the secondary sexual features. We do believe that knowledge makes us respect the differences. So, we will study the following points: -Basic notions of the endocrine system. -The most important hormone glands. -Sexual glands and their activity. -To compare it with other examples from the natural world.

Mobility to Poland





On 18th November our students took part in the International mobility to Poland. We met our partners from Poland and Romania in Warsaw and we worked together for a week on the topic of globalisation.

Sunday.

Our students met their host families and started living together for a week. They will speak most of the time in English and will have to adapt to their habits.
The teachers met as well and joined to have dinner together.

Monday.

We started working on globalisation:

-    First of all, a survey among the Polish population. We went  to the University of Warsaw and, in groups of four or five, conducted  a survey on globalisation: economic changes, population’s  satisfaction with the new economic system, behaviours, etc
-    After that, the students carried out a treasure hunt in the city centre.Working together, they had to find historical elements of the city that tell a lot about its past and present life.
-    We met together and talk about what we had learnt and our first impressions.
Tuesday.

We met at school and travelled to Lodz, a Polish city well-known because of its urban murals painted by artist from all over the world. We went by bus and were able to stop to contemplate the most important ones. Later, we had lunch in a kind of urban art gallery where a workshop on graffiti was prepared. Working in groups our students expressed the meaning of University by painting.

Wednesday.

We met at school where all students presented what they had been working on in their countries: how music has changed because of globalisation, gastronomy, what we know about the others, etc.

Later, we were divided into two groups. One of them went to FRONTEX, The European Border and Coast Guard Agency, an agency of the European Union headquartered in Warsaw. The students were explained which the purpose of the agency is and about problems related to migrations. The other group went to see a Photography exhibition with the aim of seeing how Poland has changed in the last 50 years.

Thursday.

We continued working in groups at school. Polish, Romanian and Spanish students shared their knowledge and talked about their research on globalisation. Later, we visited the neon museum, where we heard a very interesting explanation about the use of neon advertisements in the communist period. Then we did a very creative workshop: if global economy were communist today, what would the adversitements look like? We were said to create a sign for Facebook or  Google. 
After having lunch, we split into two groups again. The group who hadn’t visited FRONTEX the previous day, went for the talk there, while the other one went to the exhibition.

Later on, we met in the city centre and went to a Polish TV where a TV series about Casimiro the Geat was being recorded, therefore we had the opportunity of doing something really exciting and of getting to know a little bit about the history of this country.

Friday.

Time for conclusions. We worked together and completed a survey about what we had learnt as well as evaluation questionnaires. We met up with the principal and teachers to say goodbye. Then, students went with their families to spend the rest of the evening together.
