The courses in History of Human Thought aimed at the didactics of reading and writing represent a no-cost educational offer addressed to both italian and foreign citizens, regardless of study degree attained, to foster the good practices of reading and writing.

The experience of reading (as reflection and analysis on the written text) and of writing (as expressive synthesis of one’s thought) are hardly to be found in the daily life of the citizens in Italy. Regardless of study degree and social status 77% of the italian citizens do not read and 86% do not write. About thirty-five million Italians suffer (to various degrees) from near-illiteracy and this is the reason why reading and writing are almost absent from the citizens’ daily activities : so that it becomes crucial to start a literacy or re-literacy campaign based on educational courses and on the promotion of cultural activities targeted to the entire population because “without literacy there is neither intellectual growth nor democracy’s expansion”

How and Why…

Why should citizens start and follow in time an educational path (free, gradual and permanent) proposed by the Public School for the Adults?

Because the courses in History of Human Thought aimed at the didactics of reading and writing pursue some fundamental goals enabling the “investment in intelligence” …

the “legere multum”…

The courses in History of Human Thought aimed at the didactics of reading and writing pursue the goal of teaching how to “legere multum (read in small doses but constantly and very carefully)”: it is necessary to get into the habit of devoting ten minutes every day to the practice of reading, as this habit of reading with attention four pages a day (that amounts to nearly 1500 pages in a year...) turns the citizen into a strong and aware reader.

the repertory…

The courses in History of Human Thought aimed at the didactics of reading and writing pursue the goal of teaching how to “analyse a cultural repertory”: it si necessary to get to know the key terms and grasp the meaningful ideas in the History of Human Thought if we are to understand what we read and want to have a valid reason to write: without “keys” (the terms and the ideas) the door to reading can’t be opened.

the scheme...

The courses in History of Human Thought aimed at the didactics of reading and writing pursue the goal of teaching how to “develop an intellectual scheme”: it is necessary to learn how to effectively express one’s thoughts in synthesis through writing, , as the habit to write a few lines every day, better if autobiographic, turns the citizen into a person able to cast an insightful look into oneself, for “we cannot know anything in the world outside without first knowing the world inside ourselves”.

a “workflow” in the stages of learning…

The courses in History of Human Thought aimed at the didactics of reading and writing pursue the goal of teaching how to “reflect upon and manage one’s own learning processes”: it is necessary to learn how to govern, administer and strengthen the acts which facilitate learning: knowing (the key terms), understanding (the ideas), applying (the study plan), analysing (the thought), synthesizing (the text), assessing (the cognitive stages). Learning takes place when the path leading to “learn how to learn” is followed with method and awareness.

The right to learn is one of the fundamental rights of the person because it leads to the conquest of the right of citizenship; and the right to learn is achieved (there is no right without duty) especially by developing skills in the practice of reading and writing.
