Descripción

The life project is the plan that a person draws in order to obtain an objective. All humans have dreams and needs. During our childhood, we play to be superheroes, to be firemen or veterinarians; no matter what profession we chose, our dreams were based on what we “wanted to be”. A life project is simply a document that compiles “what we want to be” and “what we are going to do” to achieve it in certain chapters of our life. It also includes the possibilities and means/resources that we need and currently have to achieve those goals. In summary, a life project is our little manual where we register our dreams and the actions that we are going to carry out in order to fulfill those goals. The project gives coherence to the life of a person in his diverse facets and marks a certain style, in to act, in the relations, in the way of seeing life… At the end of the project the students should upload a video talking about their life project, integrating the use of verb tenses, the definition of who they are and where do they belong.Taking a look of their future and their goal in the future.  Taken from: https://tintohub.com/life-project-definition-importance-and-steps-to-create-one/ https://cpivm14.wordpress.com/about/
