E-Lecture
Congratulations on making it this far. In this module, we will try to bring together some of what we learned in previous modules. The term project can be done individually or in pairs or small groups. Let me know if you would like to do a group project and I will help you find a partner or partners.

The goal of the term project is to look back on what we learned in the other modules and create an activity or resource for other language learners.

Here are a few examples:

(1) Scavenger hunts

(2) Webquests

(3) Weblogs (Blogs)

(4) Vocabulary or grammar exercises

(5) Reading activities

(6) Listening activities

(7) Annotated bibliographies
