4. Problems We Had To Overcome

We had difficulties in lack of time to take photoes and interviews — Our pupils are involved in activities in Art school besides secondary school.The pupils haven't got experience in interview of people. Trere isn't a studio at school. The pupils could prepare only Power-Point presentations.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

With the help of Mrs. Sukach,our English teacher who suggested us to take part in this project, we chose the title of the project, prepared a draft, edited our presentations,took photoes for them, visited our local museum and district library, went along the streets(there are 45 streets in our village)to find interesting places and to interview local inhabitants. First we thought that it would be easy but then we found out that it wasn't so. It took us a lot of time and energy.

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

Our Cyberfair project is based on Federal State Educational Standards administrated by the Ministry of Education. This programme equips students with carry-on capabilities such as: to work in team(self-express,communicate, and share), to participate in research work (plan, organize, and execute),to adopt technology and information. The pupils obtain such skills as:English language learning( we practiced in listening, speaking, reading and writing). We had to traslate collected materials from Russian into English. Our project work gave us opportunity to make friends with many new people. Besides our work helped us to come to new levels of interactions between teachers and students. Using of Information Technologies united us in completing the tasks of the project. Our team often met in our clacc to exchange the collected materials because we needed to place all the materials in the file of the project.

There was a gala meeting at school on that day. And we announced about the project to the pupils.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

During our work of collecting the material for our project we learnt a lot of new and interesting things about the monuments built by the Cossacks of Bryukhovetskiy district Cossack Society. The monument is all that you have done to facilitate memory in order to remember or commemorate the matter, not to forget things. Each tree has its roots. And the deeper they go into the ground, the stronger and more powerful gun. Each rise in the history associated with the reference to the past, the old, the revival of old, save it, their roots... Our society is vital in-depth knowledge of its history. Cossacks - the phenomenon is unique to our country to such an extent that to imagine without him the past is not possible. History of the Cossacks attracts people: I want to know her all the grandeur and diversity. Because the monuments are not silent.
