WEBQUESTS :

  • Anorexia - a webquest
    "First,we will learn about this eating disorder in order to be able to answer these and many other questions related to this topic and then we'll use all
    the information gathered to create our own project, which will consist in launching a campaign to prevent and fight anorexia in your school.
    In order to have an overall view of this illness, we are going to work in groups of three.
    Each member of the group will adopt a specific role so that you can get the information from different points of view:
    a nutritionist, a psychologist and somebody worried about a friend who is or may be an anorexic."

    "Sitting alone on / a cold bar stool,
    / your cold, hard eyes make me feel a fool.
    / Pastel-white features, / high cheek-bones,

    The girl of my nightmares, / sultry and corpse-like.
    The girl / of my / nightmares."
