CRE Monologue of Literature21 mai 2022
The teacher of Finnish literature presented herself to the students and explained the scenario of the day. Students were divided into 7 mixed groups. Each group had to research about a female writer from :
-Finland : Minna Canth, Tove Jansson, Irmelin Sandman-Lilius
-Romania : Queen Maria of Romania, Herta Müller
-or France : Olympes de Gouges, Simone de Beauvoir
First, each group had to find out about the life of the writer, her most important works and their themes, the (female) characters in their production and the message of the writer. After that, they had to do a Google slide presentation e.g. the picture of the writer and a picture of her works. Later, they had to write a monologue of the writer and short texts of other characters of their choice, e.g. characters from her book, characters who encouraged or criticised her or even themselves reading short extracts from her works, think about how to dress or about props they could take on stage, and exercise the presentation so that it was fluent, speaking clearly and aloud.
After lunch, each group performed their stage in front of all the students in the school auditorium and their slide show was reflected on the wall while the group is on the stage. After the show, the students watched an episode of the Moomins, a family of friendly hippopotamus-like trolls created 60 years ago by Tove Jansson.
