    reasons to do battle with the other more
    complex aspects of doing DTP in the ELT
    classroom?
  • 2. What does success mean in projects of this
    kind?
  • 3. Would a project utilising communication and
    information technologies (CIT) perform better
    using integrative aspects in the reform
    curriculum - e.g., In the establishing
    of a school newspaper?
