CrossRoads is an on-line language support for 13-19 year old bilingual pupils.
More specifically, the project will support individual pupils who wish to develop their skill in a language of which they already have some knowledge but which they are not learning in a mainstream class. They may have no formal lessons at all or may be taught it in an extra-curricular or supplementary class. It is envisaged that participating pupils will apply for a qualification exam in the language studied.
Programme of activities, include:
Sept to October 2009
Teachers in secondary schools to refer up to 20 pupils.
Face-to-face meeting to match pupils to trained undergraduate mentors and train them to use UCL Moodle.
Pupils' self-evaluation in writing, reading, speaking and listening skills to be followed by developing a work-plan with mentors.
Dec 09 to Mar 10
The project will last for 8 weekly on-line meetings, followed by an end of project celebration.
All undergraduate mentors will be CRB checked and trained for this project. On-line communication between mentors and pupils will be supervised by British Council Language Assistants and Language Lecturers.
