Has anyone started to introduce the independent research project to A level MFL students yet? How do we enable students to choose a topic area, focus their research, channel their ideas, analyse content independently? In a class of 12, the majority of students have come up with several ideas of things which might interest them but some students can't seem to think of anything despite our best efforts to inspire them! But how do we narrow it down and become more precise? Any tips, thoughts, ideas anyone, given that the level of support we can give is minimal to non-existent??
