One Day As A University Researcher

Over ten years ago I was a contributor to the Center of English Studies at the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon. I conceived with a colleague the project of taking primary students from poor areas to spend a say in college as researchers.

I took my class there for a treasure hunt. First they would watch video clips of Disney movies based upon literary works. Afterwards they would be searching for the library where they would make the requisition of the matching novels. A few days later they would receive a CD with the video of their visit and a few gifts. I made the cut and the music soundtrack for the video.

The project was a success but it ended there. Sadly, my class was the only one to spend a day in college.
