Why are great personalities important?

 "I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn."

Balloon debate

Here are some ideas to develop this project with your students in class.

1. Together with your students, study the presentations about famous people who have had an influence in their own country and the wider world.

2. Give your students time to learn more about the famous people and prepare for a, ‘balloon debate’.

3. In this debate your students imagine that the famous people are all in a hot air balloon

4. Their combined weight is too heavy for the balloon, so it is starting to lose height and might crash soon!

5. To stop the balloon from crashing your students have to decide which three famous people need to ‘leave’ the balloon.

After the debate you could then upload the results of the debate and the reasons the students gave for their decision on the project page or discussion forum. You could also add a poll to the page and let your students vote.

Ways of expressing yourself

You could include powerpoint presentations, word documents and whatever you may find interesting and useful.

IVANA

BRLIC-MAZURANIC

(1874 - 1938)

 

 

Ivana Brlic Mazuranic was born in Ogulin on April 18, 1874, into very  well known Mazuranic family, grandchild of Ivan, poet, politician and Croatian ban, and daughter of Vladimir lawyer and legal historian. Through  her marriage to Vatroslav Brlic, lawyer and politician in Slovenski Brod, she bacame part of yet another  family very well known in Croatian society; it provided Ignjat Alojzije, writer and linguist, and  Andrija Tokvart Brlic, politician and journalist, important names of a line  that was as well known in Croatian cultural and social life as the Mazuranic family. Surrounded by capacious libraries in the both houses, by an atmosphere of work and patriotism, she attained a very considerable learning in her own home, learned languages and lived a rich and intense inner life. She  devoted all her work to her family, to education and to her literary creations.

Highly valued by both national and foreign critics, she obtained the title of  "Croatian Hans Cristian Andresen" for the collection of Tales of Long Ago. Her place as the best  writer in Croatian   children's  literature is assurred. She had the ability to identify with the psyche of the child, to understand the purity and naivety of the world of children. Her works has been translated into many languages  and she was nominated for  the Nobel prize for literature. In the 1937 she became the first woman ever to be elected to the Croatian Academy of Scinces and Arts. She died in Zagreb on September 21, 1938.
