In this eTwinning project we would first like to explore the need for sustainable development due to climate change and environmental destruction, secondly study all aspects of sustainability and thirdly examine how sustainability is put into action in Europe and in our home towns. The students participating in this project will work in multi-national teams on project assignments or sub-projects to explore the topic of sustainability. The different teams will use the most communication networks today and share the results of their exchange. All results of the different assignments will be uploaded to the TwinSpace which operates as a learning platform, communication hub and is the main product of this project. As the students have to collaborate in international teams they have to communicate in English and improve their language skills that way. Additionally they will improve their digital skills by working on the TwinSpace and its tools like the TwinBoard and other web 2.0 tools.

Then discuss some of the most famous Croatian and foreign poets. As a pre-task, ask your students to choose one Croatian and one English speaking poet and try to find similarities and differences between them. In class, students present their authors and the class can vote on the best analysis. The next step is to work with Verse by verse where students first discuss the poets that they are familiar with and then each student chooses one American author, reads his/ her biography and a short poem by the author. In the next step of the activity, students choose the poetic form, syllable count, rhyme and then the aplication helps them with the writing suggesting the poetic form and the above mentioned elements which the poet they had previously decided on, used in his/her work. The students are given enough time to work on their poem and when the entire class is done, the students can present their work on a poster (paper) or can present it using a digital tool (Canva, Padlet, Lino....). After that, students are invited to make infographics about the entire experience, they can include all the work they had previously done on poets.
