The origin of our project is the wish of our students and teachers to get in touch with other schools in Europe to share an experience of good practices and get to know about social values in different areas of Europe. We feel that this is a necessary experience to fulfill our school objectives of bringing the different European realities closer to our students. By developing our ADELE (A Drama-European Legacy: fEmale roles in Literature) project we intend, on the one hand, to promote the study of different authors in the literatures of our partner countries and to understand through those texts the different roles that European societies have assigned women inside them throughout history, something that is part of the European cultural legacy. This will lead, we hope, to a general asumption by the students of the necessary equality in diversity between women and men. We also intend, on the other hand, to improve their competence in foreign languages; to make the mobility, contact and exchange of youngsters of different European countries easier; and to share good educational practices that are being developed in the schools that take part of he project. We also consider an added value that schools from such different and distant places in Europe as North, Middle and South, with their uniqueness in culture, join the project. With ADELE, we consider that we will strengthen the improvement of the key skills that the common European reference framework contents: communication in foreign languages, cultural awareness and expression, personal and social competence and civic and digital competences. Assuming that drama constitutes a strong educational tool that motivates students and involves them actively in their learning- teaching process and fosters the different key competences that we pretend them to achieve, we will prepare a theatre show to provide them the breeding ground to learn about the literary context in which the author produces his / her work, the ideological background that lies in it and the historical moment in which it was written.
