After three months of hard work, here we are again.
The students in 1º ESO (Bilingual Section) have been learning about the Romans in Britain. We focused our attention on Vindolanda, a Roman site by Hadrian’s Wall. We got to know about the way people lived there through the tablets a Roman scribe wrote about 2000 years ago.
It has been tricky work for our pupils as they had to complete their task searching for information on the net. They could only use webpages written in English for people who master the language, so they had to understand the contents and rewrite them in their own words. To help them value cooperative work we encouraged them to infer the meaning of the words they didn’t understand and forbade them to use a dictionary.
They chose the photos and maps you can see in this document and they were very creative when attempting the writing workshop.
