Teaching periods

The CICLO objectives are reached through the following activities:

CICLO teaching periods

The teaching period will take place for two-three months between February/March and May/June 2014.

The core entity is the school class or the educational group in the extra-curricular programme (Russia), guided and coordinated by each contact teacher who is responsible for this class/group participating in the CICLO programme.

The contact-teacher and school/institution has freedom to organise the period as they want, as long as the following common guideslines are observed:

  1. The overall global CICLO aims and objectives and the regional framework organised by the regional CICLO partner
  2. Use of educational material, teacher training and respective regional website
  3. Internet collaboration: Bilateral twinning of contact teachers responsible for Internet contact between Brazil, Denmark, Russia and South Africa

Time schedule
Contact teachers are twinned by February 2014, and must start communicating with each other immediately.

– By 26 February 2014: All schools/groups have finished engaged students in producing a presentation of the clas/group, sent it by e-mail to partner contact teacher and uploaded it on the CICLO website.

– By 14 May 2014: All schools/groups are finished with producing a creative expression on the chosen sustainability theme, and sent it by e-mail to partner contact teacher and uploaded it on the CICLO website.
