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.


What is peer pressure according to our students


We asked our students what is peer pressure according to them and we received they opinions. The participants of the project could express their opinions but what they said is also very valuable for us as the teachers and tutors. Here are a few examples:


Peer pressure is when you are sad or when your friends want that you make bad things for them. For example buy alcohol or something else.  By Bianka from Germany


Peer pressure is when your friends say that you should do different things like drinking and smoking or taking drugs. By Soren from Germany


In my opinion peer presure is that tour peers are trying to put you, or somebody else up to do something wrong.
Example: your classmates trying to tell you that smoking or drinking isn`t bad. By Franek from Poland


Peer pressures are: missing school, shoplifting, lie your parents, because help a classmate to cheat in a test, ignoring people, writing graffiti, breaking windows. By Ada from Poland


Peer pressure is when your friends insist on you to serve them, doing different  things for them, drunk and smoke etc. according to me . By Olga from Poland


I think that they say often things that you should to do but you shouldn't do this. That's siily a test of courage. By Julia from Germany


I find pressure in my peer is for example a brand clothes. Many people get bullied when they don`t wear brand clothes. By Lea from Germany


Peer pressure is when you must lie to your parents, because
someone wants a lot of money from you.
By Pauline from Germany
