MAXIMISING POTENTIAL - Pilot Project 2006-07

The pilot project was conducted in four Edinburgh Schools. Thereafter the Online Project appeared as a Learning and Teaching Scotland's mini website called Maximising Potential: a resource to support inclusion in modern languages. The full program can be found here: http://www.ltscotland.org.uk/maximisingpotential/ This website provides supplementary support for the programme and access to archive material from the pilot project.

The current version of Maximising Potential on the LTS website omits some of the Points for Reflection. The pdf copy of the Project Reader contains all of them:
