Every two years (…)
Here is another example of an engaging practice that, from a professional experience, fosters students’ SCHOOL ENGAGEMENT. By school engagement we mean students’ observable participation in school activities, sense of belonging to classmates and teachers, and valuing success in school-related goals.
It is implemented by: Teacher
It is directed at students aged: all
Target group: Whole school
Main subjects involved: arts
ICT involvement: no
Description of the practice: Every two years, the school organises a regular musical production, with a wide range of tasks and roles for different pupils. This brings out different talents and employs a large number of pupils. Pupils take responsibility for their work, starting with the creation of the script and seeing themselves and other pupils in new roles. The production is presented to schools and residents in the area. Every two years, a carnival-style talent show is held, and many people get involved.
Accessible to any student: yes
Meaningful participation for every student: no
Why?: It is meaningful for those who want to participate
