Potenziare la lingua dello studio per gli allievi di origine straniera
Il Service Po.Li.S. del Rotary Club di Rovigo
The most recent data available from the Ministry of University and Research (2017) confirm that in Italy, students of foreign origin who have reached the age of secondary school still prefer to enrol in technical and professional institutes rather than in high schools. The same data also reveal how their school performance tends to be on average lower than that of their peers not of foreign origin, especially in scientific or technical subjects. Very often, the causes of this are to be found in a not yet adequate level of CALP. In this paper we illustrate a project (Po.Li.S.: Potenziamento Lingua dello Studio), the purpose of which was to improve the CALP of these students and in so doing their overall school results and motivation to study.
