Facilitators: The author Eleni Svoronou, the drama pedagogues IroPotamousi, Jenny Karaviti, Sonia Mologousi, NassiaCholeva and other certified Project facilitators.

The book and its annex with class activities are distributed for free.

Goals: The raising of the awareness of students regarding the refugee issue,the cultivation of empathy and of the ability to step in somebody else’s shoes, the cultivation of solidarity and an atmosphere of cooperation in the classroom, the prevention of situations of rejection and intimidation of the students who are different. For the older students also: cultivation of an active citizen stance, cultivation of critical thinking and inclusion of problems like the refugee issue in their global and systemic dimension.

Description: Introductory games of concentration and creation of a spirit of cooperation (formation of teams, body images etc.). Introduction to the story of the “sklirokarydi”. Reading of a passage and continuation of the story by the students (writing). Processing of the different versions of continuation of the story and their dramatizationwith powerful pictures. Discussion on the concept of being a stranger.

Requirements: A classroom with desks arranged in a U-shape and formation of free space in the middle. Scratch paper and pencils for every student. Having already read the book is not a prerequisite. The students could have discussed the refugee issue and could have visited the UNHCR website. They could have looked at the book cover and have formulated ideas for the possible content of the story.

Applications: interested teachers have to send an application, from the school’s email (not their personal one) with the consent of the school’s principal, at humanrights@theatroedu.gr in care of Mrs. Yanna Papadopoulou.
Priority will be given to the members of the Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network.
