    group projects for teenagers.

    I'd like to do some sort of project type thing that takes up a long time, is constructive and involves no preparation on my part at all.

    Does anyone have any good ideas for teenagers....... around a pre -intermediate level.

    depends? what sort of topic/class ? language?

    what sort of access to resources do u have? library? computer room? internet access?

    get them to organise a debate on something, requires them to research, analyse and prepare....

    I'm thinking of geography type project.

    They can't be relied on to do any research at home.

    the only thing that comes to mind is to take them on a field trip to make a map of the surroundings of a chosen location. Don't have to be accurate!

    Pre-teach/elicit vocab and phrases for talking about movies - comedy, drama, plot, characters, music, effects, etc - and get them to work in groups of 2/3 students. Get them to think of a movie they've all seen and enjoyed. Get them to make notes about the film, collect pics of the stars, etc. Then they present their review in front of the class. (Classmates have to each write one question they want to know the answer to for the Any Questions? section at the end of the presentation). The presenters have to speak for an equal length of time. Give them marks out of 5 for content, interest, accuracy, fluency & confidence, etc.

    Could use different topics - favourite band / song / computer game / etc.
    The sleep of reason brings forth monsters.
