The Reading Lesson

Het Leesplankje

Directed by Johan van der Keuken
Netherlands, 1973
Documentary, Short


In a Dutch primary school, first years learn to read via traditional methods using words in combination with pictures. In a creative frame of mind, the director developed this system of teaching by gradually replacing images from conventional teaching aids with shots extracted from political events.
