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.

Polish team reached the most difficult part of the project, as the students said, analysing the results of the survey. In spite of the fact that they were taught  some useful vacabulary which should be used for comparisons they were really pessimistic about this task considering it as too dificult for them. The group was divided into pairs to cooperate. At the beginning they needed a lot of help and attention but surprisingly quickly they started working on their own.

German and Polish students completed the survey about family bonds answering the questions. It was the last survey in the project and they really regrated that there won't be any more.

Writing and completing the survey was the first stage of working with this kind of tool. The purpose is to analyse the results and find the similarities and differences between our students.

In this project we decided to use webpage "Zoomerang" to create the surveys. It is an easy tool to use and useful for students to find out a lot about themselves and their partners. 

Let's see the results.
