THE CHILDREN WATCH US
“Schools have to be a little better than the society around us, otherwise what are they there for?” In this sentence lies the sense of the path undertaken by Franco Lorenzoni, elementary teacher and creator of the workshop house of Cenci, inUmbria.
Lorenzoni’s pedagogical passion emerges in the story of his last year of school: you can breathe Freinet, Don Milani, Emma Castelnuovo, Danilo Dolci on every page, where dialogue is at the base of his educational process. Epistolary dialogue as a method of contact between the class and Ipazia, Gandhi, Herodotus, Socrates.
Introduces: Chiara Stella (teacher), dialogues with the author Anna Malgarise (responsible of Biblioteca Civica Ragazzi).
