Workshop: Developing reading capacities to learn different subject fields

Fernanda Coelho Liberali

This workshop aims at, in a critical perspective, developing participants’ possibilities of working with the reading of different genres (Bakhtin, 1953) as a way of learning different subject fields. It will be developed in three steps. In the first step, participants will experience reading comic strips from a critical perspective, developing different language capacities (Schneuwly and Dolz, 2004). In the second step, participants will reflect upon the language capacities developed and on the different procedures to work with them. Finally, in the third step, participants will be divided into groups and asked to develop their own tasks (based on the topics discussed) for working with their own students. The participants will be invited to share their contributions with colleagues.
