CACERES ARBELAEZ, Alix Argenis e UNIGARRO MILLAN, Diana Rocío. Analysis of Children’s English Language Learning Evidences when Engaging in Project Work*. profile [online]. 2007, n.8, pp. 9-24. ISSN 1657-0790.
In this article we want to share the great experience of working by projects because our fifth graders showed us the huge potential they have to explore, investigate, create and learn English. Teachers have to motivate students to work in class because they are anxious to acquire new knowledge. We can do this by integrating the contents of the syllabus for fifth grade, by contextualizing it and putting it into action. Of course, we have to take into account our students’ needs, likes and expectations in order to steer them into a project. In this way, we can prepare our students to face the learning processes in an easy, funny and enjoyable way.
