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.

Peer pressure

Last week we started working on the - so far - most difficult topic of our project: peer pressure. Students tend to have problems to talk about their experiences and feelings, if they are connected with the feelings of lost and fear.

So, it was not just a challenge concerning the language to talk about this topic, which is strongly connected to highly emotional parts of their lives,  but also concerning their own personal teenage problems.
