Our students from Liceo " Seguenza" , as well as other pupils from lots of local schools, have taken part in a project organised by the Regional Library: each school was assigned a Sicilian city to work on: our students will develop a project about Catania. Since the beginning of the school year, they have been attending several seminars and conferences, held by University professors and journalists, about different topics: art, enogastronomy, the social media.
Hosting Kristian Novak in X. Gymnasium "Ivan Supek". Hall full of high school students and a writer who rightfully deserves to be a new generation first choice. In our Erasmus + project this event, along with Jelena Crnek, was organized by our project team members mrs. Cvjetanka Bozanic and mrs.Neli Mindoljević.
On 22nd February 2017 , our students met Silvana La Spina to discuss her latest novel " L'uomo che veniva da Messina" : they had the opportunity to interview the author and learn her views about reading and her writing creative process.
Liceo organised three meetings (16-17/12/2016, 21/01/2017) in order to sponsor school activities and courses to the families of prospective students. Each event was attended by nearly three hundred people interested in the educational offer. On these occasions, informative talks were devoted to the presentation of the Erasmus+ projects granted to the school. Liceo had the opportunity to outline the main features and aims of "Handbook for RSP readers", thus arousing great enthusiasm among the audience.
With the purpose of arousing our students'eagerness to read Liceo ''Seguenza'', Italian project partner, planned some activities that could contribute to the project goals:
READING FOR FUN - a team competition based on questions about selected stories and authors
THE BOOKWORM CLUB - students discuss or analyse the reasons why they liked or disliked the stories, providing examples and putting forward their different opinions, exchanging points of view with the audience
Project study on reading habits questionnaire included 8131 participants from various secondary schools in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Italia and Croatia. The survey was conducted during November and December, 2016.
Countries prepared their national reports and our joint report is almost done.
Enjoy a sneak peak of the final results:
Students of X. gimnazija ''Ivan Super'' with Olja Savičević Ivančević, author of the novel ''Pjevač u noći'' - DK Gavella, February 17th, 2017.
During the lessons of English language and Slovak language our students had an unusual experience with reading and interpreting poems. The Ode on Grecian Urn by John Keats and City dwellers by Wolfenstein in Slovak language were introduced in an uncommon way. The students were working in groups and each group had a poster with a stanza. They had to express the meaning of the symbols and ideas by drawing and painting. They were excited and the interpretation was a great success.
We created a blog called Bookworm Readers:
where the students of our school (but the students of the project partners can post) are able to upload articles about the books they have read. They can give each other a short hint of the plot, they can attract our bloggers with the feelings they have had and motivate each other.
