Teams of students took on a specific country and then researched the history, culture, government, sights to see, and activities associated with their country. Then, in the form of an exhibition table, students presented their findings in the form of travel packages.
Guests could visit each exhibition to choose between two packages of travel:
Adventure or Cultural, as well as compare different price levels: economy, average, luxury.
First, students presented important and interesting information about their country. Then, as a guest, we could ask questions. Aided by maps, digital presentations, traditional food, and much more … students were able to “sell” their countries to all visitors.
This assignment helps our students to excel in English. From Skolverket, we know that:
Teaching in the subject of English should give students the
opportunities to develop the following:
The ability to express oneself and communicate in English in speech and
writing. The ability to adapt language to different purposes, recipients and situations. And, the ability to discuss and reflect on living conditions, social issues and cultural features in different contexts and parts of the world where English is used.
This assignment did all that … and more!
