20201016T1200 20201016T1345 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh EFL TEACHERS’ USES OF PROJECT ACTIVITIES IN THE ENGLISH NEW TEXTBOOK GRADE 10

In an attempt to improve the quality of English learning and teaching, the pilot English textbook series for Vietnamese schools under the NFL 2020 Project was published in 2012 and used in high schools upon the issue of Document No.3702 by MOET in 2013. One of the dominant differences between the pilot English textbooks and the traditional programs is that project activities were integrated into each unit. These project activities intended to help students to foster their language ability. Nonetheless, many teachers fall into the troubles in implementing these projects because they are new and challenging. This study was conducted to investigate EFL teachers' common activities in implementing project work in Tieng Anh 10 and clarify the strategies they use to carry out these activities. The participants were fifty EFL teachers teaching new textbooks at eighteen high schools in An Giang. The data discussed in the study were estimated by questionnaire and interview. The findings indicated EFL teachers' implements were included group work, presentation, small research related to the topics, learners' explanation, or forming a club or a program and computer-aided in teaching. In the assessment section, teachers usually get students' peer and group evaluation. Besides, they ask students to give and get feedback after their friends' performances. What is more, they not only used the suggested strategies but also provided their strategies to implement project activities in the pilot textbook. In Viet Nam, the research findings contribute to meaningful implications for EFL high school teachers and school administers.
