Students questioned about the filme adaptation of a play
To my surprise, only two students had read the book The Little Prince in a group of about 80. I myself have been reading it in adulthood. As a reader I am, I realized the flaw of not stimulating educational preteens to read the classics. And lack it brings to the learning process. With The Little Prince, working imagination, inquiry, curiosity finally working with a universe of imagination so necessary at that age. Saw the movie that sparked interest in the sixth-year students, most in the range of 10 to 13 years.
As soon as I saw the interest that Romeo and Juliet awoke in young adolescents ninth year with the dramatic text adapted for the cinema. The questions about the context for the nineties, not the colloquial language. Thus reached the goal that I had proposed, they awakened interest in the scenic language. We talk about theater, film and stage. Anyway the classics is a real need to understand society, to question, to be able to contextualize the world and all the globalization process. And later to make choices. Without offering these can not do them, then accepting everything that comes in imposing when it comes to art, culture and entertainment.
Remembering that today is International Children's Book Day and birthday of Hans Christian Andersen.
