The founder of the action "Total dictation" will perform in Chelyabinsk

On February 13 in Chelyabinsk will be held a lecture by the teacher of ITMO University (information technology, mechanics and optics) Ilya Stakheev, who among the participants of the action is called the "founding father" of The total dictation. The lecture will focus on the history of the educational public action and on topical issues of the Russian language.

"The event will be interesting for those who love total dictation and want to learn more about it, – said the project coordinator in Chelyabinsk Zoya Potapova. - It was Ilya who came up with the name "Total dictation" and stood at the origins of the action, so it is useful to meet with him and the organizers, and just interested citizens. We hope that the speaker's story will further stimulate interest in the total dictation in Chelyabinsk. The time for the lecture was chosen very symbolic-exactly two months before the next total literacy test".

Ilya Stakheev is ready to tell how The total dictation appeared, why it is needed and whether it will save the Russian language, why the project was named so, for whom it is important that there are no mistakes and much more. Chelyabinsk residents will have a unique opportunity to ask questions to the lecturer and find out at what level the total dictation takes place in other cities and how it is organized by the Headquarters.

The lecture will be held on February 13 at 19-30 in the Lecture hall KC 11 at the address: Clara Zetkin str., 11.
