Description

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:

Lead Historian

Organizes the research that will be required for the group’s segment of the presentation.

Media Specialist

Acquires the raw multimedia materials for inclusion in the PowerPoint segment.

PowerPoint Engineer

Focuses on the construction of the group’s segment by taking the lead with the PowerPoint program.

Segment Producer

Coordinates the team’s efforts and oversees many aspects of the planning and production phases.

This helpful packet includes

  • Full instructions on how to implement the research project.
  • List of resources that students can use to assist in collecting information.
  • 4 group role posters listing each member’s responsibilities (Lead Historian, Media Specialist, PowerPoint Engineer & Segment Producer).
  • Name badges for each student when working in their group.
  • Group questions and individual group member tasks.
  • A tuning-in activity to help you find out what students already know about myths and legends and what questions they may have.
  • Data Chart and Venn Diagram to help the Segment Producer collect information about myths and legends.
  • Self-assessment and peer-assessment sheets that students complete after watching each of the presentations.
