The teaching project “Leitura Viva do IFSP Câmpus São Carlos” proposes to encourage reading and writing at school, so that they become a habit in the students' lives. The activities involve the reading of literary texts and the textual production of genres such as biography, introduction and summary; in addition, they encourage the process of creative writing (poems based on the plot of the work read) with students.

The objective is to encourage the practice of reading and to develop writing skills through interdisciplinary activities. The idea is to share the knowledge acquired during the project, developing artistic and cultural presentation skills and encouraging teamwork and oral communication.

Despite being a teaching project, Leitura Viva also has an extension bias, since activities are developed with it from the outside community, such as, for example, “Leitura Viva na Praça”, which took the project to Praça da XV, in São Carlos. The first exhibition of the project was also held, which took place in the campus courtyard. On the occasion, the students exposed their productions (models and brochures) and made oral presentations and recitals of poems to guests - students of the IFSP and the municipal school Carmine Botta, servers, friends and family.

The project coordinator, professor Maria Lúcia Colombo, says that there was a great involvement of the students. For her, the teaching project and the extension activities provide students with an understanding that the areas of knowledge are intertwined in everyday life and that they can and should be developed together in the school day-to-day and also in alternative spaces. In this sense, she recalls that the project brought the knowledge produced by IFSP students to people in the community, motivating them to read and providing opportunities for the development of literary and cultural actions accessible to all.

In 2019, the project involved approximately 115 students from the 1st Year classes of the integrated technical course in Informatics and the 1st and 2nd years of the integrated technical course in Aircraft Maintenance in Avionics, from Câmpus São Carlos. The project activities were initially carried out in Portuguese language and literature classes.

In 2020, the project will continue and involve new students from these classes and courses.

How to send a video?


Students interested in contributing to the program can submit their own videos lasting a maximum of one and a half minutes, which must be recorded with a camcorder or cell phone camera. When using the cell phone, recording should be done with the device horizontally, using the rear or front camera (selfie mode). Videos recorded with vertical framing cannot be considered.

The people who will present the project must be very close to the camera, so that they are audible. Look for more reserved places, without the interference of external sounds (wind, event sound, ambient noise). Light the scene well, record in favor of the light. Do not use digital zoom, as it affects the quality of the video.


After recording the video, upload the raw material (without the insertion of subtitles, soundtrack and overlapping images) and files (photos or other information) related to the project in the cloud and send the link with the project information, full name , course and campus for email .


To upload the video, you can choose the storage of your preference. We suggest, as a suggestion, SendSpace (https://www.sendspace.com), Dropbox (https://www.dropbox.com/pt_BR/) and Google Drive (https://drive.google.com) .

Remember that the material must be sent without editing.

In case of doubt, contact the Communication Department by e-mail .
