The group has some problem with the topic, but finally chosen pollution, and sometimes we didn't have time to work on this, had a lot of other assignments to complete.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

It is about pollution, the lung cancer.

6. How did your activities and research for this Doors to Diplomacy Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?

We learned how to group work better, we complained about the topic but finally agreed with pollution. We understood more on pollution than before through the research, we discovered that we are a tiny role in the school community, i think the traditional learning ways are more effective than internet, because i feel better to read on a book and write with a pen.
