For the final project in my world studies class, I am trying something new. We don’t have extensive time to cover every country in the Middle East in detail, so students will be doing presentations for their finals.
Each student was randomly assigned a country in the Middle East or Central Asia and they are to present their country in extensive detail. This will allow them to use their technology (we are 1:1 with MacBooks) and use their prior knowledge about countries, current events, and demographics in general.
Here is the information required on their presentation…
Slide 1- Introduction Slide (flag, name)
Slide 2- General Information (location, geography, resources)
Slide 3- Population/ People (Ethnic groups, who lives there, interesting information)
Slide 4- History of Country (established, under other country’s rule, how did it get to where it is today)
Slide 5- History of Country (same as slide 4)
Slide 6- Politics (type of government, relations with U.S. or other large nations, relations in their region)
Slide 7- Economy (type of economy, GDP, imports/exports, how they make money)
Slide 8- Education (literacy rate, what types of schools and who attends them, how do people learn)
Slide 9- Culture (traditional foods, attractions, how do people dress, famous people from country)
Slide 10- Current Event (share at least one current event of something happening in this country from the last two months)
Slide 11- Any interesting facts that you found in your research that you would like to share/ if you can’t find interesting facts then share pictures of tourist attractions or exotic animals from country.
Slide 12- Sources (MLA format)
***Slides should include some general information (6x6 rule) but the majority of your information should be spoken in your presentation. Make your slides easy to read and appealing to the class by including pictures.
