Students will be assigned a country and will build a powerpoint from their research and present it in an informative speech! AVID Students start by picking one country from the class set of country topic cards.
Then, they receive a handout with their instructions on what to research for their PowerPoint or Google Slides component. AVID Students will love researching to find the cuisine, cultural etiquette rules, and celebrities from their country! Finally, students will present the powerpoint to the class as a speech.
