Aesop’s fables – workgroup progress

ArtofEnglish have been quite busy and will soon be ready to share their work with the world. . .’till then, here’s a brief post on how we got here and their progress so far.

As I mentioned in the previous post (you can read it here) primary students set the mood for Aesop and “The boy who cried wolf” and workroup meetings were arranged for Saturday mornings at the school library. A wonderful combination of practicing and learning English in a really uplifting atmosphere – the library is buzzing with activity on Saturdays!
Decisions, designing and storyboarding were happening simultaneously and of course democratically; here are the first two charts my B1+ students created:

As for me, walking around the room while the workgroup got on with their job, I’ve managed not to get in their way and keep track of their progress – I was really excited while filling in my MidProgressReport (if you like, download and read it here) about all the students remembered and used and all the new vocabulary and functions they learned in the first month of the “Reversing Aesop” project.

Hopefully the next post will contain a sneak peek of their book . . .(!).Aesop - original picture source www.biography.com
