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
Furthermore, following Slovak partner's suggestions, Liceo decided to join the blog Slovaks started off so that their students too could write articles, impressions and comments. Liceo also decided to set up a permanent book stall to enable students to exchange their spare books.
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: http://bookworm.6f.sk/ , 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.
We are international group of teachers from Sweden, Spain and Croatia, and we are in Prague in January 23 – 29 on a course “Project Management – How to Make Your School International”. One way of getting ideas of making your school international is by visiting international schools. We were lucky that in Prague we have great hosts – it is Stredni škola Nahorni, or High Vocational Art School.
Our visit started with exchanging ideas about different educational systems – Czech, Swedish, Croatian and Spanish, while having a coffee. Of course, it is much more beneficial to learn about other educational system from interaction than from reading from Wikipedia.
