English and Social Studies Project Based Learning Student Presentations Academic Field Trip to Peru February 2017

In February 2017 the 10th grade class of Colegio Menor San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador, went on an Academic Field Trip to Peru. The objective of the trip was to provide students with an opportunity to explore the Inca Civilization beyond the classroom setting and investigate their heritage from different perspectives, while using knowledge and skills acquired in each of their subjects included in their curriculum this year.

In their English and Social Studies classes students produced a research paper, working on the same project in both academic disciplines throughout the investigative. While focusing on the structure and mechanics of writing a research paper in their English class, in Social Studies they emphasized inquiring background information and exploring evidence related to their topics. The research includes a wide range of topics, including Inca nutrition, architecture, roads, social organization, culture and the effects of tourism on the contemporary Peruvian society, to mention a few of the topics that students investigated. On this page we are presenting the student research papers.
