Slideshow and Presentation

Next, put together a report with a minimum of 10 slides which will teach the class the most important facts about the topic you were assigned.  Include both pictures and maps which will help illustrate your topic.  You must use the Google Docs Presentation tool.  The one exception is: if you are not able to do it on a computer, you may make each slide on paper by writing your facts and drawing your own pictures to illustrate them.

You will give a presentation of about five minutes.  Make sure you cover the three questions given in the report topics page.  Also include at least one quote from your primary source and an image of a primary source artifact.  Circle it so I know what it is and make sure you explain to the class how it shows what was going on at that time.  See the rubric below for how the final project will be graded.

Have your presentation ready by 11/17 for Ancient Greece/Rome, by 11/27 for the Middle ages, by  11/29 for the Renaissance, and by 12/4 for 1600-20th century.
