INTROTASKPROC-1 - This Webquest has been designed for students of Secondary Education of English as a ForeignPROC-2 Language - The required level is pre-intermediate orEVALUATION intermediate. We think it can work better with students in Bachillerato (16, 17 years old), but itNOTES can also be done with students of 4º ESO (15CREDITS years old), if they like English. - The objectives are to make students aware of the risks and possibilities of getting AIDS. From a linguistic point of view, students will benefit from reading extensively in English and will have to put into practice other skills such as summarizing, writing an interview, etc. - It can be carried out in class (3 or 4 sessions to guide them through the process) and as part of their homework.
