7th Cultural Week 2015: PIONEERS

We'll soon start working for this year's cultural week. Our seventh cultural week will be devoted to: 



That is, people who have become the first to do something important or relevant around the world in some certain field.
Another meaning of the expression in the USA is for all those people in American history who migrated to the west to settle and develop new areas which hadn't been previously occupied and were only inhabited by natives.


From the English Department, we can work on two aspects:

1- Pioneers: the first people to work or become outstanding in a certain issue.
To decide on which character you can work on here are some links. Browse through the different people and choose someone who you consider interesting. 

- with British people. So here's a list: 100 Greatest Britons.

- and if it's important and difficult to be a pioneer, it's even more if you're a woman, so here are lists of women pioneers:


Best female pioneers by "The Guardian".

or 2- Pioneers: those first Americans to settle in the West of North America.
Here are some links to search for information:

- Pioneer facts.

- Frontier Legends: Pioneers of the American West.

- Pioneer Life in America.

- Pioneers & Westward Expansion.

Possible tasks:

a- We can prepare different posters of famous British or American pioneers, both male & female. Later prepare a Pioneer Challenge Quiz from all the information collected.

b- Prepare a presentation/poster on the American Pioneers.
