SUMMARY

All the partners arrived in several waves on Sunday. Adults were accommodated in the hotel « Decebal” while students enjoyed hosting families.
During this week we focused on the book, working on the chapters. Everything missing has to be sent to all the partners before March 31. Work has been shared :
Chapter 1 : Lithuania and Poland
Chapter 2 : France and Spain
Chapter 3 : Romania and Turkey
Actually, the main problem is the number of pages and pictures. We all agreed in Poland on a page number and summary. Actually, we have too many pages, so we have to cut some pieces and pictures.
Introduction was already written by France, conclusions will be drawn in Turkey. A part of the conclusion will be the experience of participating students.
Lithuania and Spain are also in charge of the cover of the book. Those 2 countries will present us some work and the whole team, students and teachers, will vote to choose their favourite one.
The results of the 1st survey are to be published by Lithuania.
The evaluation of the 1st year project is to be published by Romania.
The final book (a paper version for each country), will be printed in Turkey and stored on the website and blog. Each one will print, in its country, the amount necessary.
Students shared a lot of time working (cooking, sport activities, comparing and exchanging on their activities, walking on the trail of ancestors…).
We held a festival of traditions on Monday, each country presented some objects, traditions, food, dances…. by Ppt or posters. This was a very interesting afternoon during which we all learned a lot about our respective cultures.
Then, alterning working times and visits, we discovered many places dealing with our project.
Next meeting in Turkey from 18/19 to 25/26 May 2013.
The dates are not convenient for all of us, however a choice had to me made. Let’s hope we can all work together for a good ending of project.
