ILS held its traditional spring research project competition, where 7th and 8th graders give presentations in front of an audience and a panel of judges. This year the focus was on factors that influence the emergence of new musical genres and affect the further development of existing genres.
"All the groups did serious research work," explains Svetlana Feshchenko, who teaches English Language and serves as Coordinator for English Language Subjects in grades 5-9. "The students prepared and rehearsed diligently; some of them even used dances and musical numbers in their presentations."
Among the guests in the audience were students from Far Eastern Pedagogical University.The results of the competition were as follows:1st place7М1 group 1 Rock
8M1 group 1 Latin music

"Research projects are an integral part of the educational process," notes ILS Principal Olga Shevchenko. "Every year our students do research on important topics in a wide range of areas, thereby learning how to analyze information, as well as how to work in groups and independently."
