Our city is distinguished not only by the activity of the participants, but also by the consistently high number of excellent students. It was in Pavlodar that the fivefold excellent student of Total dictation came to light, which became a kind of record not only of our city, but also of Kazakhstan.
Total dictation in Pavlodar unites hundreds of citizens. The participants of the action are not only schoolchildren, students, working youth, but also journalists, creative intelligentsia, authoritative people of the city. At five venues last year, they were dictated by 19 famous people, among whom was a veteran of pedagogical work, T. Ivanov, an actress of the Regional Drama Theater named after A.P. Chekhov Khalim Khaziyeva.
The works of the participants were checked by 45 volunteer philologists. They are experienced school teachers, many of them veterans, who return to their usual work every year with pleasure. All these years this expert group in Pavlodar has been headed by the head of Department of Russian Language and Literature PSPU, Candidate of Philological Sciences Olga Andryuschenko.
In 2019, Pavlodar intends to once again take part in the international literacy campaign.
Determined the site for total dictation. These are already traditional: PSPU (Mira St., 60), InEU (M. Gorkogo St., 102/4), Regional Library (Satpayev St., 104), and also new sites in the House of Friendship (1 Maya St., 35 / 1) and in the cafe "Nekafe" (Kairbayeva str., 34). For the second year, everyone will write the dictation with Berlingo pens, which will then be remembered by the participants. The organizing committee of the action is confident that the active participation of Pavlodar residents in the Total Dictation will promote the language literacy vector designated by the President, especially in the year that is declared the Year of Youth in Kazakhstan, and will strengthen the image of Pavlodar as a cultural and literate city.
