    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

The part specifically designed for the Primary Education course will deal with issues related to the instillation of a taste for reading, not as an end in itself, but as a practice to be pursued all along the educational path (and beyond); the laboratory, which is an integral part of the course, will be devoted to picture ‘reading’ and to the problem of integration between text and images.
