When Books Are Sad: Videos by Hopkins Students

(Information about this project was provided by the very awesome Angeles de Castro)

This activity started as an in-class reading and comprehension activity. The students enjoyed the reading so much that they asked if they could create videos about the story. In pairs or small groups, they came up with very interesting projects. The videos are based on a short-story titled La Desesperación de las Letras by Ginés Cutillas in which the author presents the books as humans who decided to commit suicide because their owners prefer watching televisión over reading.

Please watch the two student videos below. If some technical difficulties are rectified, there will be a third video soon!

-Signing off, Jenny Barrows (who is confident that La Desesperación de las Letras is saved from a dire fate)
