This Project is about writing the continuation of Victor HUGO’s immortal book ‘Les Misarebles’ that is according to us definetely number one in French and world literature.
Our aim in this project which is mainly aimed at middle school and high school students is to strengthen creative skills of students. Also we aim to show that ‘Les Misarebles’ tells about fight of the good and the bad and people can change positively over time. Just like ‘Jean Valjean’.
Our students will read ‘Les Misarebles’ and discoss the characters in the novel among themselves. İn addition to this, they will watch a film made in 1998 about ‘Les Misarebles’ After analyzing all characters, students will ask themselves this questions: ‘İf ı were Victor HUGO in this era, how would I go on writing the novel?’
We will collect writings of each students in a book in Turkish, English and French. We will also translate each country into its national language.We will try to prove that everybody can be a writer. We are also planning to apply this project to the students especially in French speaking countries amon European Union countries as well. We will gether their writings and translate them into Turkish and English.
When we let them write like our students, we will be able to ases the perspectives of both civilizations.
