AVID College Research Project and Presentation

AVID Proyecto de investigación sobre la universidad

For this project I translated the documents and added a few more questions to this research project on Universities.

Instead of researching local universities, I had students research universities in Latin America that would fit their needs. Afterwards, students had to present their universities via PowerPoint or Prezi in class.

I also included a list of websites where students can begin their research process. Many were surprised to learn that there are universities in Mexico like El Tec de Monterrey which are exclusively taught in English or that la UNAM is actually one of the top universities in the world or that they speak Portuguese in Brazil and Catalán in Spain.

A few students even decided to research the schools where their parents attended in Latin America or that are located in their small towns. It was a great opportunity for them to compare and contrast University Life in Latin America.

Product includes:

  • -Detailed research project instructions
  • -Examples include: What is the school banner, mascot, specialties, etc.
  • -Questionnaire about the university
  • -Student sample
  • -List of possible universities
  • -Note taking activity for students to hold them accountable during other student presentations.
  • Student Sample from the University of Costa Rica
