Joel Massanes is a boy from the FEDAC Salt School, he is sixteen years old and is doing his 4th year of ESO. In this interview we will ask you that they are working on projects in the afternoons.
What projects are you currently developing?
We are doing a project on World War I and the Russian Revolution, the topic is to choose a character related to the time and study it to have a debate at the end of the project.
Do you like the project?
It’s a good idea, but if you’re not interested in the history of that time, it’s boring.
Which subjects are involved in the project?.
The subjects involved are Social and the different languages taught in school, although social is the most involved, as the topic is the history of World War I and the Russian Revolution.
Does it help to raise the final mark?
Yes, it goes up quite a bit and this helps us to increase our averages, because not everyone has a facility for social and languages.
Do you think you are learning or are you not learning with this project?
If you learn a lot about what is happening in Ukraine and Russia and also about the character you are studying, because in the end you are spending many hours learning the character.
Do you have to do something at home or just at school?
We use class hours to do everything, but if we do a very bad job doing some work, we finish the work at home.
How many hours a week do you spend doing it?
We spend 4 hours a week all afternoon from 3 to 5 pm, 2 hours on Mondays and 2 hours on Thursdays.
Would you recommend that the teachers will continue the project next year? Why?
Yes, but it would be better if we could choose a time that we like, because if it doesn’t get boring if you don’t like the subject.
Did you create the project yourself, or did your teachers propose it?
The project was suggested to us by the teachers; however, who had the idea was Pilar, who with the help of Berta, has been perfecting and carrying out this project.
Have you just done this project, or have you done other projects before? Which did you like best?
We did another project that dealt with the first influences, we did this project together with 1st of ESO. Then we had basic skills, and we started this project, which is what we liked the most because we were able to focus on the character you want.
