During this activity, the middle school students had the opportunity to reflect on differences and their perception in the Italian society, using official sources and comparing them with the local reality and with those of their own families. The results were displayed in an exhibition open to students, teachers and families.

Job shadowing - 21st-27th November 2021
From 21st to 27th 2021 the Istituto Comprensivo “Taliercio” had the honor of hosting the first mobility of the Eramsus + project “Enrichment is the result of meeting”.
A moment of sharing and exchanging between teachers, with a focus on inclusive teaching in our schools.
Although, due to the restrictions linked to the pandemic, the teachers were unable to work closely with our students, the teachers were able to visit our schools and learn more about our teaching methodologies.

We had the opportunity to discuss the rules, rules and strategies to face the difficult challenges that schools across Europe have had to face due to Covid-19, especially with distance learning and the use of new technologies..
Coding @ school
The main focus of our experience was to spread the use of Coding as a tool for inclusion in European schools.
In fact, in our schools, children begin to approach coding from the age of 3. This language is particularly engaging and motivating for pupils with special needs.
Teachers had the opportunity to experiment with hands-on activities, creating real lessons that could be carried out in the classes, with pupils from 3 to 13 years old.
Meeting with the Major
The Mayor of Carrara, prof. Francesco De Pasquale, received the delegation of teachers participating in the project in the Council Chamber of the Municipality.
On this occasion he reiterated the importance for our city, famous all over the world for its marble, of exchanges with the nations of Europe and with the whole world, with a view to sharing and enriching the city and its population.
Giuseppe Taliercio Institute is in Marina di Carrara, a district of Carrara municipality set in a lovely landscape whose frame is made up of the Apuan Alps at the back and the Tyrrhenian sea at the front, there are about 62.000 residents living in the area.

There is a small number of foreign pupils: our school looks after them to promote integration through welcoming occasions and specific educational paths; among the student community there are a lot of pupils with Special Needs: during the years we have been working for them to set welcoming and integration procedures so as to become a really inclusive school.
