This "working paper" offers 16 sample projects (integrated programs of work built around a central situation or idea intended to aid in the development of communication skills and the personal and social development of students) which are divided into five types: (1) minor projects--short projects which introduce the approach, built around some simple situation or incident; (2) imaginary community projects--pupils project themselves imaginatively into the life of some community, producing written and oral responses with an emphasis on human character; (3) magazine and radio program projects, produced with a certain readership or audience in mind; (4) radial projects--pupils are asked to explore the human issues underlying a certain situation; and (5) bridge projects--students explore various human issues through the study of texts. Guidelines for the designing and implementing of projects, and suggestions for projects with different types of pupils are provided. The appendix includes record-of-work sheets, an assessment project, and three examples of projects adjusted to suit local situations and particular classes. (MF)
