    Ready to read me?

    "Are you ready to read me?" is our project to let youngsters from different countries and backgrounds meet each other through what they read. Or must we say: through what we think they read? Indeed, teachers easily think that pupils only like gaming, hanging out with friends and doing nothing but maybe youngsters ARE willing to read. Do our pupils only read magazines, blogs, facebook entries and text messages or are they still interested in newspapers, novels and poetry? That's exactly what we are going to investigate. Secondly we are going to get our own pupils familiar with literature in our own native language. Additionally we will learn about each other's literature. Finally we will teach our pupils to write short stories, poems and comic books in English. Polish and Belgian pupils, are you ready to read one another?
