To go along with Unit Four in social studies, you will each be creating a presentation that tells the story of one of the historical figures mentioned in this unit (chapters 7 and 8). You can choose any one of these people to do your research on. The end-product will be a presentation that follows the template seen here:

Keep in mind that, for this "presentation", you are actually telling the story of this person, so your slides won't necessarily be "presentation zen." In fact, you won't even need to use bullet points.

Each slide, except for the title and bibliography slides, should have at least one image on it. 

Africa Project Reflection

Now that you have given your presentation to the class, I would like you to write a reflection piece on the project (two or more paragraphs). Think back over the project and consider these questions:
  • What did you like about this project?
  • What was challenging? What was easy?
  • Was there something that surprised you? Perhaps doing a presentation was easier or harder than you thought it would be.
  • If you were to do this project again, what would you do differently? How could you make it better?
  • What did you learn about yourself while doing this project?
  • What did you learn about presenting from watching your classmates' presentations?
  • Why do you think learning to give a presentation might be important?
  • What did you learn about Africa from watching all of your classmates' presentations?
Please write your reflection in a Google Doc titled "[student #] Africa Project Reflection." Be sure to place it in your student folder.
