PROJECT WORK IN ENGLISH
Project work should be fun and should be a learning experience at the same time.
For instructions on writing your project go to PROJECT CHECKLISTS.
Below is a list of objectives which we hope to achieve through writing an English project.
The Objectives of Working on a Project in English
Project work allows you, the student, the opportunity to use the English language on a project of your choice, designing
how you will work and what it is you wish to discover.
You will choose the topic and then the approach you wish to take to research your topic by writing a research question
which will help guide you during your work.
You will choose various methods of research using the internet, books, interviews, institutions and organizations,
museums and archives, newspapers and magazines, atlases and dictionaries, etc.
You can choose whether to work on your own or with one or more persons as a group project.
You will learn to list sources, organize your material, summarise a text and use quotations correctly.
You will learn to use different media such as the internet as a source of information.
You will learn how to present your work in an organized and esthetic manner fulfilling the necessary requirements –
introduction, body, conclusion, title page, table of contents, bibliography and reflection.
You will learn to work with others in the class and outside the class in collecting information and in presenting it
both as a written presentation and as an oral presentation.
You will learn how to assess your own work through the use of checklists and rubrics thereby learning to take responsibility

All in all the experience of working and presenting a project in English should be an ongoing process by which one
learns a vast array of skills while developing ones English in a challenging and motivating situation.
