A project based learning: Marie Curie

Project based learning methodology fulfills a meaningful learning. As a consequence, in English 3 we work with projects. Therefore, we create our own materials. As the Pygmalion effect says: when climate, input, response opportunity and feedback are provided, students bloom.


A project based learning we are working on is “Women who changed the world”. Specifically, we are focusing on Nobel Prize scientific awarded women.

Within this activity, we have worked the past simple tense. Grammar is the skeleton of language which will allow students to walk in the English linguistic competence. Therefore, after reading Marie Curie’s biography, students had to create the questions of the reading comprehension. They really enjoyed the exercise and the structure is definitely learnt. It is a fact that we are grammar lovers. Now, let’s choose our next scientific awarded woman!
