Istituto di Istruzione Superiore don Lorenzo Milani

Gragnano is a town located mid-way between Naples and Sorrento, well known all over the world for its pasta factories and wine. Our school is attended by a large number of students (1570) – 14/19 years old – resident or coming from the little towns nearby Gragnano, as we can offer a complete range of courses: Liceo Scientifico, Liceo delle Scienze Umane, Istituto Tecnico. The school has got two separate buildings with ITC , Science and Language labs, a well equipped gym and a library.In the old building there is a well equipped drama room,too.We are a large community of teachers and management people(about 160), all sharing the same mission as an eTwinning School.As in Gragnano there are few cultural stimuli, our school has always aimed at improving the teaching quality and preparing students to face with different realities in order to ease the transition from education into the labour market thanks to the acquisition of formal and informal skills, to support possible working mobility in Europe. A lot of activities have been organized over the years to achieve these objectives, such as projects aiming at the development of civic competences and of active citizenship ( mainly in eTwinning projects), developing class exchange projects and individual mobility projects in Europe with the support of the local communities or working with European partners by eTwinning/Erasmus, awarded with EQL and National Prices.Considering that the latest innovation in methodology and the 21st century challenges require more and more specialized professionalism both in terms of educational competences and in terms of foreign language competences, our school has planned to motivate students in the use of a foreign language to express their everyday experiences thanks to the relationships – in presence and online- with peers. Moreover they are engaged in extracurricular language classes to get their language level Certificate in English, French and German, according to their school curricula.Some students assessed and diagnosed as having special educational needs, are supported by specialized teachers to improve their conditions.We think that involving our students from the I and II classes ( which means from the very beginning of their high education) in this Erasmus project will give them the opportunity to acquire a stronger democratic and collaborative attitude as European citizens.
