Are you after more engaging ways to teach myths and legends. This research project takes your students from brainstorming through to producing an information presentation about myths and legends.
Your students work in small groups to produce a segment (using PowerPoint) related to myths and legends. Each group is provided with a different set of questions they must answer relating to myths and legends.
Each student takes on a specific role to help their group research and design the presentation. The roles include:
Organizes the research that will be required for the group’s segment of the presentation.
Acquires the raw multimedia materials for inclusion in the PowerPoint segment.
Focuses on the construction of the group’s segment by taking the lead with the PowerPoint program.
Coordinates the team’s efforts and oversees many aspects of the planning and production phases.
This helpful packet includes
