Abstract

Summary

Students in Dutch secondary schools are expected to translate Latin texts literally. They have to put a lot of effort into this task and, because of the difficulty of the task, many students hardly ever think about the question whether the content of the text is significant for their own situation in life. In this article, I present a ‘Whole Task’-assignment that promotes motivation by allowing choices and autonomous decisions. Students create their own and, in doing so, show their teacher and themselves how they personalize the reading of philosophical texts.
