Václav Havel – a Czech myth, or Havel in a Nutshell
This interactive workshop lasting for about 180 minutes takes place in the “Havel in a Nutshell” exhibition hall. Primary and secondary school students are divided into groups within which they deal with various “research” projects. Students work with selected texts and are provided with particular books. The workshop is related not only to the teaching of Czech history, but also to personal, literary, artistic and media training, and increasing student’s democratic consciousness as citizens.
Nina Rut, who presents the programme, has several years’ experience of working with media, editing, and teaching. She has carried out an educational programme for teachers entitled “Reading and Writing for Critical Thinking”. She is a permanent member of staff at the Václav Havel Library.
The optimal number of students in one group is 20. The lesson is adapted to suit each particular group. The price of a seminar is 100 CZK per student. The date is set according to prior arrangement (firstname.lastname@example.org).
