Summary (goals and purposes of the project)
One of the main goals of SMILE is to support primary schools in their effort to involve Roma students, creating a welcoming learning environment for Roma children and families and developing a sense of community through the foundation of a new spirit of Community feeling, based on the concept of prosociality. Among the specific objectives of SMILE is the realization of a didactic scheme (the Prosocial Community Inclusion Model ‐ PCIM), addressed to create or reinforce the students’ positive perception of the diversity and to establish shared prosocial teaching and learning rules for developing a pedagogical reference scheme, thus considering the specific issue of Roma inclusion through the reinforcement of the social competences. In this perspective, the integration is an issue of all the Education Community.
SMILE also intends to create a formal cooperation among the communities where the students live, Educating Communities, which will represent a formal agreement involving all the institutions or associations, Roma and Gage, which are the points of reference in the education of students.
