  Summary  

   Students working in small groups have evaluated the situation of working women in the Czech Republic and compared it with that of other countries. They have tried to find out in which spheres it is easiest for women to enter successfully and on the contrary where it is still rather difficult, e.g. politics. The relation between motherhood and career has been inspected as well.
   Prior to this "direct research" the participants studied the history and development of women's education and work. The history of the recognition of the rights of women in different European countries has been a part of this research. Some research has been done in the pupils' own families. Some women having interesting jobs have been asked for interviews. The final product will contain above all development, statistics, evaluation and portraits of some successful women.

The Comenius Project Meeting at GJN in Prague, December 2002





The Comenius partners' meeting in Prague brought a great encouragement to our 4B class and four students from Berlin, who were chosen to present their project works at the meeting. For many of them the presentation was a real challenge, they had to try hard to overcome stage fright, uncertainty and lack of self-confidence, for most of them it was the first chance to have a longer speech in a foreign language in front of an audience. Nevertheless, most presentations were clear, interesting and well organized. Some students were active and lively in the follow-up discussion too. Their work and ability to present it was appreciated by our guests.
