Dialogue and Argumentation for cultural Literacy Learning in Schools.
In DIALLS, wordless picturebooks and short films produced in Europe are used as Cultural Texts to stimulate classroom discussions, and children and young people from different countries will share their ideas using a special online platform. The celebration of a diverse and multitudinous understanding of cultural literacy is the rationale behind the selection of the Bibliography of Cultural Texts. By including only wordless picturebooks and films we emphasise the visual over the verbal as an equalising influence on a transnational and transcultural readership.
