Text messages are part of the syllabus at a secondary school and a primary school in Aalborg, as part of a project to awaken young people’s reading.
Herningvej, Aalborg, Aalborg School Libraries and the publishing house SMSpress, as well as the authors Kim Fupz Aakeson, Svend Åge Madsen and Julie Haas squad have put 3 SMS-short stories on the syllabus. It writes our site.
-“They read their text messages, even if it has with homework to do,” it tells David Kowalski, who is a teacher in class 9. class on Herningvej School in Aalborg, to dr.dk.
It is not only Herningvej School, which is included in this project-also 1. g classes on Fdg examines whether SMS-short stories can give young people want to read more.
An SMS-short story is a story that is written specifically to “the media”. Examples might be a dialog between two people, and so the reader is a “fly on the wall”, which follows this dialog.
Children and young people’s reading takes place today much on digital media, therefore, the project will also try to catch the young people where they are.
-“Students have talked a lot about it in frikvarterer and on Facebook. Texting is a great way to hit young people, perhaps especially the large group of young people who do not have automated their reading-this means that they can read a Word, but they can not read and derive an action. We would like you to read of desire, as will be the better to study and perform better through, “says Maria Sjøblom that is area manager at Aalborg Libraries.
Writer Svend Åge Madsen has only sent one SMS in his life, but he has nevertheless written SMS-short story “Gid”, which was popular with students at Herning road School. Svend Åge Madsen also found media and the SMS can be interesting, since one can play as a writer on the surprise effect and the immediate vicinity, as a text message.
The experiment ends in January and is supported by the Cultural Agency.
