Una mirada al sistema penitenciario desde fuera
Next 30th and 31st March 2015, IES "A Xunqueira" no. 1 will visit the town of A Lama and, more in particular, its penitentiary. A group of twenty students and four teachers will be given the opportunity of meeting inmates and educators from Module 8, and complete two workshops in collaboration with them.
After a brief presentation of the activity plan, one of the first points in the project's programme will involve inmates and students in the reading of a short story by Anton Chekhov entitled "The Bet".
We would like all of you, whether you take part in the school trip or not, to read the story, listen to the audiobook we have prepared for you, and leave your opinion in the comments section below. This is a story of voluntary imprisonment and its effects. What is the moral of the story? Is there one at all? Will it be interpreted in the same way by a student, a teacher, an educator, or an A Lama inmate? The floor is yours; read, listen, and comment.
