A knight in the castle of letters and A knight in the castle of words

The stories of the “knight in the castle of letters” and the “knight in the castle of words” are also published as two separate books. They are designed for children of the minority primary school in Thrace.

The content of the two CD-ROMs was adjusted to the linear book organization. As a result the syllabus was organized in lessons, which comprise:

  • A text
  • Vocabulary
  • Reading comprehension tasks
  • Grammar and vocabulary exercises
  • Writing tasks

The introductory text of each lesson was written by Eugene Trivizas and is accompanied by illustrations and the most important vocabulary translated in Turkish. After reading the text, the child has to perform reading comprehension tasks and also grammar exercises, which focus on the specific language phenomena that the text covers.

The exercises follow a ‘communicative’, namely functional, way of teaching and are relative to the topic of the lesson they belong to. Besides the grammar exercises, each lesson includes vocabulary and phonological exercises. Finally, some units include also writing tasks for different text types.
