Citizenship Lesson

The Basic dynamics of this Citizenship Lesson for most of the participants are about injustice and the daily pressure to survive. Learners will be given roles, as residents of a fictional country, 'Europia'. Some will be immigrants, with roots outside Europia, other will be born in Europia. The ethnic, age and class distinctions will divide lerners in different roles, and consequently they will go through 'life' (during the simulation) differently.

The Citizenship Lesson will engage learners as active and expressive participants. it will raise awareness of vvalues and perceptions; it will also stimulate reactions and responses to some significant issues about identy and belonging.

The de-briefing is an important part of the simulation, enabling learners to express how they felt during the simulation.
