Young journalists as a part of CHANGE

Student Lana JuriŇ°ińá is one of the students from primary schools in Croatia, currently inclouded in CHANGE project. She wrote about CHANGE in their school newspaper “Zmajńćek”, as a student journalist:

 

This school year we started implementing the CHANGE project. The goal of CHANGE is to make students think critically about the topics of migration and refugees, teach them how to differ facts from opinions and to be able to recognise prejudices and stereotipes. CHANGE is offering students new knowledge, experiences, encounters and new perspective as well. Each of stages lasts approximately 45 minutes, so we decided to have each of them on one class for the journalist group, for students in 8th grade in KaŇ°ina. Each stage of the CHANGE curriculum encourages students to reflect about different things. There is 6 phases altogether. Some of these steps are: exploring self-awareness and self-esteem, critical information, dealing with prejudices… And all of them are teaching you something new. We started with the programme, and so far we like it a lot! At the beginning we filled out the evaluation and then we started with the first stage, where we watched a touching short movie about a girl named Hiba and reflected about self-esteem and self-awareness. We will be informing you about the continuation of the project here in ‚ÄúZmajńćek‚ÄĚ.

I mladi novinari pridruŇĺili su se projektu CHANGE

Uńćenica Lana JuriŇ°ińá jedna je od uńćenica osnovnih Ň°kola u Hrvatskoj ukljuńćenih u CHANGE projekt. O projektu je pisala u Ň°kolskim novinama ‚ÄúZmajńćek‚ÄĚ:

 

Ove godine smo se ukljuńćili u projekt CHANGE. Projekt CHANGE ima za cilj potaknuti uńćenike na kritińćko razmiŇ°ljanje o temi izbjeglica i migracija, poduńćava ih kako mogu razlikovati ńćinjenice od miŇ°ljenja i tome da postanu sposobni prepoznati predrasude i stereotipe. ViŇ°e o projektu moŇĺete saznati na stranicama JRS-a. CHANGE Ňĺeli ponuditi uńćenicima nova znanja, iskustva, susrete a moŇĺda i novu perspektivu. Svaka faza za ispunjavanje treba oko 45 minuta, pa smo mi to odluńćile raditi na novinarskoj grupi osmih razreda u KaŇ°ini. Svaka faza potińće uńćenika na neŇ°to drugo. Ima 6 faza. Neke od njih su svijest o sebi i samopoŇ°tovanje, kljuńćne informacije, rad na predrasudama‚Ķ Svaka vas nauńći neŇ°to novo. Mi smo se ukljuńćile i zasad nam se jako svińĎa. Zasad smo ispunile inicijalni upitnik i zapońćeli s prvom fazom u kojoj smo pogledali dirljiv film o djevojńćici Hibi i u kojoj smo promislile o samopoŇ°tovanju i svijesti o sebi. O nastavku projekta izvjeŇ°tavat ńáemo vas u Zmajńćeku.
