Road Takes, Road Leaves … “Refugee Roads” Training Program

(University of Athens, Greece)

Abstract: In order to raise the awareness of toddlers towards refugees, we design and implement an educational program that focuses on a literary person familiar to our class, who was mentioned by the children themselves in their effort to contribute to the understanding of the concept of “refugee”. Characteristics of our educational program are its playful character, the universal participation of toddlers in it and the expression of the creative thinking of toddlers. Based on the teaching principle of declining guidance, students narrate episodes they create with their imagination about the adventure of refuge of this particular literary hero that they believe it begins when their garden is destroyed.

Key words: refuge, literary hero, creativity
