OVERVIEW OF THE YEAR sec. 1
PROJECTS AND EVALUATIONS 2019-2020
Dear parents and students,
We are pleased to provide you with an overview of the English long range plans (planification globale) where you'll find the general information about the material covered in class, the projects we will endeavour and the evaluations students will go through.
Right under, you will see examples of multimedia projects done in the last years. These projects were made 100% by our students.
Multimedia projects always include notions seen in class. Take the first 4 videos for example. In November, we discuss about the effects of peer pressure on teenagers in unit 3 of the Moving Up student book. Students then have to realise a public service announcement (PSA) that will be presented to the rest of the school on the school public television screens. These videos are used as universal prevention and students get tu use all their creativity to help their peers make the right choice. Students also have to reinvest the grammar covered in class (e.g. the simple verb tenses, past and future).
In the next series of videos, students had to invent a completely new product that would bring an innovative solution to an every day life problem and shoot an infomercial video while including a certain number of the multimedia (video shooting and editing, 3D design, compositing modes, etc.), marketing strategies and grammar notions learned during the year. It becomes their sec. 1 integrative project.
