A Trip to Italy – Italian II

 

You are members of a travel agency. Your task this week is to promote the various regions of Italy. In pairs, you will prepare a presentation of the region of your choice. You can choose to do this in the form of a booklet, poster, PowerPoint, or other means. Photos, drawings and creative lettering should be included to make it attractive.

 

Requirements of the project:

** Write three (3) to five (5) paragraphs describing the geography, history, food, art, culture and touristic aspects of the region.

** Remember to cite your sources in MLA format. EasyBib can be used for your notes.

** Create a presentation to inform potential customers regarding your region of Italy. 

** Prepare an oral presentation for the class. The writing should serve as the basis for the project but it should NOT be read (prepare note cards).

 

You will receive 3 classwork grades for the project: one for the physical artifact, one for the writing, one for the oral presentation.

 

Conclusion:

Listen carefully during the presentations, and take notes. There will be a quiz given the next class.
