Read a picture Portugal
- Develop creative writing skills;
- Encourage respect for the various forms of artistic representation;
- Diversify the use of several platforms of written expression.
Implementation in our school:
We choose an emblematic picture related to the story of our country.
In class, pupils made an analysis of the meaning of this picture.
We used the ‘Oficina da Escrita’ weekly class to, first in groups of five, and then individually, make creative writing productions about the meaning of the picture chosen.
In Art classes the students made replicas of the original Paula Rego’s picture.
The final productions were exposed and voted by the students and the winner productions were chosen to be sent.
The photograph was a partnership with 8th graders that recreated the ambience of the original picture.
