Summary

The proposed project was created on the background of a thorough analysis of the needs of the school in the area of its future development. It takes into account the specifics of ZŠ Fr. Plamínkové s rozšířenou výukou jazyků Praha 7, which is a school of 444 pupils and 52 employees. The aim of the school is to further develop language teaching and pupils’ competence in this area. The school supports CLIL methodology in several subjects and wants to provide its teacher the needed help and support as we are fully aware of the difficulties and obstacles a CLIL teacher faces. The school also sees as a priority use of modern methods in teaching in general. And it pays a lot of attention to cooperation among primary, lower secondary and after school pedagogical staff. Cross-curricular approaches and projects are welcome. We are convinced that a good school is based on pedagogical staff that cooperates on common objectives. To meet these ends we need staff that is able to respect each other, to use modern teaching methods. And with respect to language projects staff that has communicative command of English. The analysis of school needs is based on the outcomes of school self-evaluation conducted in autumn 2015, on discussions in the individual departments and in afterschool club, analysis of official school philosophy and conception and fulfilment of this conception. The key areas for further development were defined as the area of language education, science education and afterschool education provided by the school club (školní družina). More specifically attention should be paid to teaching English especially on primary school level, development in the area of CLIL, to work with special needs children and inclusion of disadvantaged children into mainstream education, multicultural education, development of higher order thinking skills, critical thinking and pupils’ ability to cooperate, to task-based and inquiry-based teaching and efficient use of ICT in education. This plan for development was introduced to pedagogical staff. The staff were asked to prepare their own project of mobility and justify how this mobility fits the overall strategic plan of school development. The selection committee (the head of the school, project coordinator, heads of departments, head of afterschool club) selected individual projects of 6 mobility participants: 3 English language teachers (mobility focusing on teaching English at primary school level, a mobility focusing on non-formal methodology in teaching languages and work with special needs children, a mobility focusing on newest trends in teaching English – drama techniques, story-telling, cooperative projects, task-based learning. One of these teachers will also attend a CLIL methodological course. She was selected for this course because she has been involved in teaching through CLIL longer time and has also undergone CLIL Essentials online training course provided by British Council. Now she is looking for further improvements and further skills in the area. The selection committee also selected two projects of afterschool teachers – one focuses on multicultural education and the other on the use of games for increasing motivation and in work with special needs children. The last selected project was the project of the head of department on natural sciences. Her mobility will focus on inquiry based education, STEM and use of ICT in teaching sciences. The outcome of the seven planned mobilities will be innovation in language education, better work with primary pupils in this area, development of CLIL at school, introduction of inquiry-based education in natural sciences and enrichment of activities offered to children in afterschool club. We also expect development of collaboration between primary, lowers secondary and afterschool teachers, e.g. when organizing cross-curricular projects (e.g. multicultural projects, language projects) We expect introduction of new approaches and methods in work with special needs children both in languages but also in all other subjects. The skills and knowledge from the mobilities will be reflected in future revisions of school education programme.Participants of mobilities will organize seminars and workshops for other pedagogical staff (both within their departments and outside of these departments). Thus all pedagogical staff of the school will profit from the mobilities. Moreover, the acquired knowledge and skills will be published in the internet, will be presented to parents, school council, colleagues from other schools in the region and also to pre-service teachers within the frame of their teaching practicum. We also expect growth of language competence of our pedagogical staff (all of them will have the opportunity to attend the preparatory language course run on the school premises). This will allow the school to participate in international projects and also will facilitate communication with parents-foreigners.
