F. Action:

As the project evolves, the students will formalise and structure their work with various outputs: letters, survey forms, meeting minutes, boards, photos, Web pages (on FYR)... They also have to plan which shape their final output will take (presentation, exhibition, dossier…), their respective involvement and tasks, and the expected results of their actions.   This will be uloaded onto the Book of the River. The final products of the project will be used by the teachers’ team, possibly with the students, to define the assessment procedures. The Book of the River will ensure there’s no deviation from the set objectives. It will make it possible to spot the errors and address them.

Creation and Presentation: the final products give meaning to the projects. An oral presentation to the largest possible public (other classes, teachers, parents,etc)   and a summary of activities and conclusions in ENGLISH for the other European classes (on the Book of the River) will increase the sense of responsibility and motivation for the students. The final output is also a relevant indicator for project and student assessment.

Proposals for real responsible actions can be implemented at the school level (e.g. saving water), at the municipality level (e.g. communication to the population,   Use of the ACTION KIT, or on an even  larger scale.
Proposals to the local authorities will be all the more meaningful as they will be related to changes in the behaviour students have agreed to.
