INTRODUCTION
The objective of this assignment is to analyze “The Music Project” from IT’S Magazine according to the criteria stated by Ribé and Vidal, Fried-Booth, and Legutke and Thomas. Although there is a great deal of overlapping among the three criteria, we have decided to follow eachof them separately so as to work in a more organized and orderly way.
A) Analysis according to Ribé and Vidal’s criteria.
For Ribé and Vidal, projects aim at a wide educational purpose since they help develop the students’ personality and enhance their motivation towards the L2 by means of creative tasks which are authentic, global and integrate language and content. (1993:3)

Furthermore, they are neatly and methodically sequenced, so students have a clear idea of...
