Project Outline 

AskWhat do I want to know and research:  Human-Environment Interaction, Politics, Economics, Culture (to include Religion) and Technology, important events of a culture, civilization, or era in history.  
ImagineWhat will I include in my presentation? Follow the Rubric for what is required.
PlanHow will I incorporate the required steps:  use of programs, resources, and working together to have a completed product.
CreateUsing an accepted format, create a presentation which effectively explains the above topics.  The slides should be relatively short--students should only use the slides as a reference for explanation.  Also include links for questions, interesting points to explore, short videos, and anything that might be interesting.  Include a Work Cited slide.  
ImproveGroups will upload the presentation to Pear Deck for testing.  This will allow for any tweaking or highlight any problems with presentation.  
Closure / Student ReflectionsStudents will submit a short survey about the presentation as feedback.
Possible Modifications / ExtensionsAccess to resources can sometimes be problematic off campus.  We may need to extend time or abbreviate requirements..
