Active Languages - project booklet and resources.

This booklet contains detailed case studies of six West Midlands schools who were awarded funding to pilot projects combining sports and languages in the curriculum. The schools involved have worked hard to turn their plans into reality and to raise the profile of languages by encouraging pupils to use languages in new contexts, giving them a new purpose and meaning. Their commitment and dedication has resulted in creative and interesting projects which have produced amazing results they are keen to share. The schools have provided information on the reasons for developing their projects, how they went about it and the amazing outcomes. Each school has been able to imbed their Active Languages project into the curriculum with plans to develop further and include other subjects in coming years. If you are looking for new ways to motivate learners, we hope you will find inspiration, resources and support to get started in this booklet. You can download the pdf here or contact us at routes@aston.ac.uk to request hard copies.
