TEENS 4 TEENS

The Project will be carried out by the students of the secondary schools (13-14 years old). At the early stage of the project the students will introduce themselves, describe their schools and the place they live. The main subject of the project will be focused on teenage problems and concerns such as: appearance, future career, schoolwork and grades, friends and friendship, money, going out, helping around the house attitude and behaviour. We will also touch the subject of peer pressure and violence at school. The students from the partner schools will be working as the teams representing their countries. Project will involve a lot of communication activities such as wiki, forum and videoconferences to let our students communicate successfully. They will also take photos, prepare Power Point presentations and write articles. The common products will be visible on twinspace, which will be published.

TEEN HELP LINE is a vital part of our project. For each activity connected with a different teenage problem there is a thread TEEN HELP LINE on Forum. The point is to give space and freedom to our participants to ask for advice and give advice. We, teachers believe that peer advice is easier to accept.

There are some examples from TEEN HEELP LINE

German team about pocket money.

January is almost over and we worked on our next topic: pocket money. It is quite interesting how teens deal with this subject. We got to know that some of them have to work to have some money, others get it be their parents or other family members. (obviously in Germany the grand-parents play an important role!)

Another subject that is really interesting for the teens.

Pocket money

Pocket money is a sensitive subject for all teenagers. So we also decided to discuss this matter. We tried to find the differences and similarities between European teenagers.

We wrote on forum:

  • How do you get your pocket money How much do you get?

  • Have you ever had a part-time job?

  • What do you spend you money on?

In our special forum thread TEEN HELP LINE we asked for advice about pocket money and gave some adviced to students who need it. I am surprised how good ideas students have to solve each other problems.

Polish students concentrated on the activities conected with their hobbies and likes.

They added the entries to the blog where they placed their favourite webpages. They also added MP3 with their favourite music to show their partnrs what kind of music they listen to.

They also wrote about their hobbies and passions on forum. We devided this thread into some subfolders with different hobbies to give students the chance to find people who have the same hobby.

The participants also wrote what they like about being 14/15. It appeared that they are not very different from each other.

Spanish team - where are you

It has already been two months since the Spanish team stopped working. It is a pity as we really want to cooperate. Students from Germany and Poland are very interested in Spanish teens' problems and concerns. We really could learn a lot from each other. We know that you are busy, but this break is really tooooooooo long. We are missing you!!!
