This handbook “Bridging the Gap: Facilitating Diversity-based Transitions from Primary to Secondary School to Prevent Early School Leaving” is mainly for teachers, educators, counselors and anyone else somehow involved with students who are transitioning from Primary to Secondary School, and are looking for new (or maybe just different) approaches to address and accompany the transition in the best way possible. The main objective of this handbook is to prepare teachers to implement the DREAMS workshop “The Trip”, and in doing so:
- acquire new knowledge and tools about transition, diversity and early school-leaving prevention
- acquire new knowledge and tools about theater and creative-based methods to support students in their transition
- gain awareness about themselves and their professional practice
- gain tools to foster diversity in the classroom and for early prevention of ESL.
