GoFor... Estonia!




 From 24th to 28th September, five teachers from Institut Marina attended the 4th teachers' training mobility under the Erasmus + programme GoFor at Paikuse Pohikool in Parnü (Estonia). 

   We spent a week working collaboratively to review project objectives,  continuous assessment actions (partnership swot analysis), collecting best activities to deal with writing strategies in our lessons and getting conclusions, reviewing Twinspace second-year tasks for our students to implement, as well as agreeing on 2nd-year mobilities. 

   Apart from all these issues, it was a wonderful week where we also had the chance to meet first-hand Estonian culture and people living in Parnü. Indeed, this will be the location of our next students' exchange mobility last week of March. 


Etwinning Label

   Our project, Go For Literacy to Enlighten your Future, has been awarded with an Etwinning label for its collaborative students' work.
   During one year, our students have been implementing reading circles based on different English novels. Moreover, our work has also been focused on Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein to celebrate its 200th anniversary in 2018. This innovative methodology has helped out students to become a bit more interested in reading and their reading and speaking skills have considerably improved. During our second year project, we'll continue working on Twinspace to write a collaborative story in groups.

   It's nice to see how partners get so much involved in our project. Meeting on Skype helps us to make progress in our project aims, get better results and a bigger impact on the actions we implement.
   Thanks a lot dear partners!




C2 Gofor Mobility France

   During one week, from the 28th May to 3rd June, we spent some days together in the first pupils' Gofor mobility in Collège Saint Anné ( Bordeaux).
   We met in order to develop our teachers’ oral skills manual to improve our teaching practice. Our students took part in different activities and workshops to improve their listening and speaking in both English and French languages. For example, they developed a story, created dialogues, perfomed a play, and even interviewed other school members, among others tasks.
   Moreover, the French Gofor project fair took place during one day in the mobility. We met at school to do a book crossing, as well as sharing with others our love for reading. Students also watched a traditional shadow play puppets show made by pur Turkish partners calld Karagöz.
   Regarding culture, we had the chance to participate in a photo rally activity in Bordeaux city centre as well as visiting le Dune de Pilat as the biggest dune in Europe, it was such a fun!
   Here you can check the project pictures as well as all of our students productions on our youtube channel.
