Description

In this school workshop, sponsored by ÖGK and the City of Vienna, the students* deal with the diversity that distinguishes us humans: Each of us is unique in our feelings, our appearance, our values, our abilities and needs. Children and adolescents are confronted with diversity every day in their everyday life and school life. The interactive and creative exercises of the workshop promote a sensitive handling of these differences, encourage discussion, bring joy and strengthen the community. Depending on the age group, different focuses are set and age-appropriate methods and examples are used.

Contents

During the workshop the students* first of all deal with their personal identity. They draw an “identity flower” and recognize their individuality and the diversity in the class. Questions like “What do we have in common? How do we differ? What do these differences mean for the way we deal with each other?” will be addressed. In the next step, exercises are conducted in which the students* record their personal strengths and talents. Together, the students then consider how respectful interaction can be strengthened in the classroom.
