Scheduled on 2017-11-15 11:36 (joint telebridge contact with Carmelita Manara, Milano, Italy, telebridge via K6DUE)

Istituto Comprensivo "Pascoli Forgione” was born in the school year 2009/2010 as part of a sizing operation that created new Comprehensive Schools, aggregating schools of different orders of the same municipal territory. It is situated in San Giovanni Rotondo, a Southern Italian town in the province of Foggia and it is used to work in a context which is typical of small towns. The Institute that includes about 800 students from the Kindergarten, and the Primary School to the Low Secondary school pursues the aim of a better and more consistent training process aimed to children from 3 to 13. Our students belong to different social, cultural and economic backgrounds. On the pedagogical level, the Istituto Comprensivo "Pascoli Forgione”, for its structures, carries out the didactic educational continuity between the three types of schools. Teachers have the possibility to know and follow the educational process from the entrance of the Kindergarten up to the final examination of middle school; they exchange important information on the characteristics of learning and the evaluation of pupils. They have also experienced forms of collaboration among the three grade levels, with constitution of "open teams" and the launching of integrated projects with particular reference to Physical Education, Music Education, Maths and Science and Foreign Languages. In fact the school is a Trinity Centre for language assessment, a Sports Centre in collaboration with the different Sports Societies of the province, we collaborate with Kangourou for English Competition, with Bocconi University for Maths competitions and with the ANISN (National Association of Natural Science Teachers) for Science Competitions. Moreover for its various projects and involvement Istituto Comprensivo “Pascoli Forgione” can be classified as a “school of the territory”, because it interacts intensively with local authorities, associations, families, volunteers and cultural institutions.
