Improving Reading and Information Literacy in ZS Pod Marjankou

In January 2006 our school joined a 2-year project which is financially supported by the European Social Funds. It is aimed at improving reading and information literacy. Teachers and students of 4 schools in Prague are working not only on developing the skills which would help the students to read and understand various texts easier, but also on the abilities to work with different sources of information. One of the most popular sources used by the students nowadays is the internet. That is why the teachers also try to prepare tasks which make the children use the computers. In the picture a group of 12-year-old students are looking for the necessary information about a football match between Chelsea and Arsenal which they were planning to see with their English teacher in December. Of course, they also had to find the way to the Chelsea stadium by London underground!!!
