Shorthand: Writing without the alphabet

Often, as a pedagogical resource, teachers invite experts to expose topics of great importance to the block being studied. Recently, Diego, 5th grade teacher, invited Julia, experimented secretary and shorthand expert to introduce his students to this way of writing. 

Currently, they are studying dramatics, among which they are learning about script history.

As a creative experiment, students created a script from scratch.

They also studied hieroglyphics, glyphs, Chinese script, Hindu script (Devanagari) and Greek script.

This kind of experiences helps our students develop a better view of history and to be aware of the coincidences between different civilizations and cultures.
