Los alumnos de 4to año exactas llevaron a cabo un proyecto en “Global Issues” bajo la temática delito y castigo (crime and punishment). En grupos, los alumnos tuvieron que, en primer lugar, elegir un delito. Luego, en clase, escribieron un libreto corto en el cual dieron a conocer la noticia del delito en un noticiero de televisión.
Finalmente, los alumnos ensayaron y actuaron una situación de “TV Breaking News” como periodistas, reporteros, policías, víctimas y testigos en los distintos escenarios: en el estudio, en la escena del crimen; con reportaje y testimonios.
Muy comprometidos con la actividad, todos los alumnos practicaron su parte del libreto y pudieron así actuarlo en el auditorio Hermano Sixto. Resultó interesante la experiencia de utilizar el idioma en un contexto de aprendizaje artístico y lúdico.

A continuación algunos testimonios de los protagonistas:
“When we prepared the news report in class we were excited about showing our work to our classmates and teacher. We found it difficult to write the script and remember our lines but we ended up being proud of what we did on stage”.
Camila Dames, Santiago Vieyra, Victoria Arias, Bruna Silveira, Maximo Von Delast.
“Overall, we enjoyed the activity and we think that working on news was an interesting topic. It was entertaining to be able to create a storyline since we learned lots of vocabulary and also we improved our speaking skills”.
Juan Cruz Hernández, Alejo Carossino, Bautista Costa, Bruno Ieraci, Patricio Castro Peña.
“Usual School work tends not to deviate from the archaic idea that learning has to be simply academic and therefore unavoidably boring. However, against all odds, TV breaking news report proved this idea to be wrong. Not only did we learn and acquire crime and punishment vocabulary, but also we had fun while doing so. What´s more, we even got to develop our creative side of the brain. It was an interesting activity; we hope we can do something of the sort again”.
Lila De Lorenzo, Sol Zunino, Alfonso Echazarreta, Sophia De Deus Amaral.
“It was a funny experience. We had to invent the script and put ourselves in the shoes of grown-ups who work for television and the news”.
Camila Bardelli, Facundo Rufino, Martin Vega Cigoj, Bautista Casal, Tomas Andividria.
“As soon as we were given the task we all experienced different emotions. Throughout the performance we managed to have a little bit of fun, while keeping our roles. Our power point presentation was useful to help the audience understand what was going on and it also prevented us from getting lost. Overall, we agree that despite being a different experience for each of us; the activity was an unforgettable one”.
Marcos Noriega, Sofía Hurtado, Valentina Dondo, Joaquín García del Rio.
“We believe that it was an excellent opportunity to improve our speaking skills and work as a team. It was a pretty tough challenge, but we managed to get along well and also have fun and learn new vocabulary”.
Jerónimo Coussio, Agustín Martinez Cereijo, Valentín Gharzia, Gonzalo Cornejo, Mateo Sandleris.
