    In collaboration with IACE, Superciao Tour proposes a unique opportunity which will provide:
    - the development of work outlines in an innovative classroom viewpoint

    - experiencing real life situations, not documentaries
    - lived experiences of students, not stories
    - onsite and online work experiences, not theoretical lessons
    New, for those who want to take their class on a virtual trip to Italy, as seen through actual student trips to Milan, Venice, Florence, Rome, Siena, Pompeii.

    (group max. 30 students)

    The online project “Diario di viaggio” presents to the students 8 different trips taken by some friends on their discovery through the Italian territory and its wealth of treasures.
    The itineraries take them through Rome, Florence, Venice, Pompeii, Siena, Milano, and the island of Sicily, as they experience the world-renowned masterpieces of Italian artists.
    The story line is presented through comic strips and photos of the principal city monuments are simultaneously displayed in the background. As students browse through the comic strip, they can listen to the characters’ Italian dialogue as well as read the English subtitles.
    The required tasks include questions which force re-reading of both the comic strip and text.

    The online project “Immagini d’arte italiana” provides an extensive array of art works produced by the grand masters of different periods of Italian art.
    The goal is for the student to familiarize himself with each work through play. Using and piecing puzzles of different levels of complexity, lead the student to discover and learn details of the individual works.
    The artists and works presented are: Giotto (1337) Il dono del mantello (The gift of the cloak), Sando Botticelli (1445) La Primavera (Spring), Leonardo da Vinci (1452) Ultima Cena (Last Supper), Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475) Cappella Sistina (Sistine Chapel), Raffaello Sanzio (1483) La Scuola di Atene (School of Athens), Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1526) Il Bibliotecario (Librarian), Caravaggio (1571) La Canestra (The Basket) Artemisia Gentileschi (1593) Autoritratto (Self portrait), Umberto Boccioni (1882) La strada (The path), Gino Severini (1883) Souvenir de voyage (Souvenier of a trip) Amedeo Modigliani (1884) Ritratto di Jeanne Hebuterne (Portrait of Jeanne Hebuterne), Giorgio de Chirico (1888) La torre rossa (The red tower), Antonio Ligabue (1899) Autoritratto (Self portrait), Renato Guttuso (1911) Tetti di Roma (Roof tops of Rome). At the end of each puzzle, students can read information on the artist of the piece and then answer comprehension questions.




    Although often misconstrued as a fun and merely pastime activity, the crossword puzzle exercise stimulates activation of various competencies for language learners.
    In this “Cruciverba” section, the student has access to a mini encyclopedia of “all things Italian”, which covers the following topics:
    Alpi: tallest mountains - Appennini: tallest mountains - Archipelagos and islands – Basilicas and cathedrals – Most beautiful Italian villages – Castles and fortresses – Lakes – Seas – Palaces – Plains – Famous piazzas – Famous bridges – Regions and capitals – Regions: location, initials for abbreviations – UNESCO world heritage sites – Theaters – Volcanoes
    Each subject contains information that is revealed only upon completion of the puzzle. The activity allows the student to choose a crossword based on complexity according to size: small, medium, or large. He/she then completes the puzzle by answering horizontal definitions - which in turn reveal the destination, when placed vertically and by consulting the mini encyclopedia.
    It is basic crossword solving; given the clue, fill in the answers. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it provides a Superciaopedia to help determine the answers.
    Students may need to consult it repeatedly, and can chose the category of the search to locate the correct response. Superciaopedia contains an extensive collection of photos of the locations in question, reinforcing the concept of culture application for language acquisition.
    The Cruciverba can be solved individually; printed and sent to the instructor, or, in timed group activities.
    The 164 puzzles are all characterized by vertical words which are solved by completing the horizontal words.

    Arte in viaggio is a tool to bring students closer to the Italian culture, capturing those aspects that have a strong educational value, such as the beauty of the artwork or the fascinating mystery of the traces of a lost civilization; it is also an opportunity for effective language learning, because it is mediated by images and situations that stimulate curiosity; it is an opportunity to reflect on the cultural richness that comes from knowing cultures and places that are very different from the one in which one lives.
    Arte in viaggio, real or virtual, one can capture similarities and differences between cultures of places far away in space and time.
    The student discovers the Italian artistic heritage through a series of virtual journeys to the most important cities of art that UNESCO has declared a World Heritage Site.
    Titles: Roma antica, Il Colosseo e il Foro romano - Firenze, Santa Maria del Fiore - Venezia, San Marco e la sua piazza - Pisa, Pizza dei Miracoli e la Torre Pendente - Pompei, tra gli scavi - Siena, Piazza del Campo e i suoi palazzi - Le cinque terre, antichi borghi marinari - Agrigento, la Valle dei Templi - Caserta, la Reggia e i suoi giardini - Milano, l'Ultima cena


    Online Italian Language and Culture class for High School students

    (Sonia Beretta, Federica Protti)

    The initiative is rooted in the Superciao a tutti Course and addresses the need for innovative methodology, pedagogy, and evolving technology in the teaching of Italian as a foreign language while adhering to scholastic requirements.
    It is a fundamental development resulting from changed social conditions and uncertainty of the type of scholastic frequency that the future presently reserves.
    Our objective is therefore two sided; to respond to the need for change in pedagogy and technology, as well as the needs of teachers working both in class and remotely.
    The decision to implement “Italiano senza frontiere” in Google Classroom comes as a result of Google Classroom being the platform of choice of countless schools.
    As teachers worked frantically to reinvent and adapt material to technology, we immediately responded by sustaining and championing them with this course.

    This is a thorough methodology of teaching which has been validated and used by those same teachers. It consists of didactic units calibrated on communication and the discovery of language structure. And, it can be personalized by teachers, according to individual needs.
    The work is structured in five levels; level 1-4, each comprising 7 didactic units of study presented in progression of contents and applied language. The fifth level comprises 14 units of study.
    Each unit proposes:
    dialogs, readings, exercises, segments on culture, grammar reflections, labs that apply the student autonomously and in groups, and individual unit test. Level 5 promotes language competency and can therefore be used for students working towards the AP exam or those particularly interested in total language learning.
