Let’s help our children to grow up on their own way - How our Hungarian adolescents look like?
Conference we would give a typology of Hungarian secondary school pupils, according their life stile, taste, and appearance. And the social, educational, economical background would be shown as well. Slides taken of young people in classroom and in their natural (leisure time) environment would illustrate statistical data, and diagrams. Finally we would give the table of content of the planned development, built on our research, a teaching material, entitled “Culture of dresses” How our Hungarian adolescents look like? How our Hungarian adolescents look like? Zoltán Kodály Hungarian composer - one of the founder of INSEA beside Herbert Read - is famous about his music education method. This method had been built on popular songs of that years, the so called folksongs. We intend, similarly to Kodály help develop the artistic sensitivity and expression of youth on their own style. And similarly to the Child Study Movement in the beginning of 20th century, we get to know as much as possible about teenagers way of life, their taste which manifests in their music, dresses, television consumption, eating and reading habits. To reach our aim, we launched a research project on young people’s socio-economical background, their different kinds of taste. The steps of the research: The Pilot project at the “Sziget” Festival 2005. (Woodstock-like) Near the capital of Hungry 3-400 000 young people gathers every Summer for a week or just a day, listen to music on twenty stages, and enjoy each others company. This place was an ideal site for mapping different “tribes” of young, mainly their dressing habits, housing ideas, and its connections with their socio-economical status. The project, a Survey of 1 000 pupils of 60 secondary schools in the school-year 2005/2006. In this project beside of filling a question form, of each pupil were taken a photo, in his/her typical wear. We analysed the connection between appearance and background, and also between eating, reading, music and television consumption. “Culture of dresses”- teaching material A development in the school year 2006/2007 is ahead of us. This ”package” will contain: student text book, picture-book, work sheets, tasks, and a guide book for teachers, about wearing and taste of youth.
