1st nov 2019: It’s Halloween time!
Class 5F celebrates Halloween time and reflects about “magical thinking” in Harry Potter’s saga (1st nov 2019).
Under the spell of a real Harry Potter mania,
class 5F of Liceo delle Scienze Umane celebrates the Halloween time …
|With the help of Professor Mc Gonagall / Castellani, the students, dressed in Harry Potter’s characters, reflect about the pedagogical value of the saga.|
|Following the tradition started by L. Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter’s story is meant to develop, especially in its young-aged readers, the so called “magical thinking”, which allows them to see the world and act on it from different perspectives.|
|But, as Dumbledore says, “it makes no sense taking refuge in dreams and forget to live”; after all, Harry and his friends face and defeat all obstacles not through magic, but thanks to what they learnt in their formative experiences as persons!|
