Chess Workshop for the youngest

Inserted activity Reverse Inclusion Didactic Program

The Matosinhos City Hall marked last week the World Braille Day with some activities in schools under the AEC (Curriculum Enrichment Activities).

From January 2nd to 6th, students from the 1st cycle of basic education had the opportunity to perform some activities with a chessboard for the visually impaired and a giant chessboard in the classes of the ECA Chess Workshop. These actions are part of the Reverse Inclusion Teaching Program, part of the AEC Local Curriculum of Matosinhos.

The World Braille Day is celebrated on January 4 and aims to raise awareness about the importance of Braille as a means of communication for people who are blind or have low vision.

The Didactic Program of Reverse Inclusion was implemented in Matosinhos as a pilot project during the pandemic, and is being applied, in this 2022/2023 school year, to the entire 1st cycle of basic education with the goal of student participation in projects aimed at people with disabilities, in order to benefit inclusion.

The initiative covers 4764 students and 25 reverse inclusion didactic programs during this school year. In practice, students will be challenged to practice activities aimed at children with disabilities and invited to take their place in the various activities proposed.
