You will work in groups to create a book about Asia. Each group will focus on a specific country in Asia. Students will work together to research, collect notes, and write about life in Asia. You will have many jobs along the way but make sure you work together!
Researchers- You will take turns collecting information from books, website search engines, virtual tours, and videos. You will work as a reader and a notetaker. You must use many different mediums to collect trustworthy and exciting information to include in your brochure. Depending on which topic you are most interested in, you will need to look for information on the different types of land, things to do and see, types of food, arts/music/sports, holidays/festivals, school, and government.
Writers- You will take on the persona of someone from Asia. By using the notes you have collected about your country and your specific subtopic, it is now time to start drafting your speech. You will talk in the first person (I) and tell us what it is like to live in Asia. You are responsible for revising your work to have voice and excitement! You will edit your work before publishing.
Publishing- You will use Microsoft word to publish your speech. You will need to choose a font style and size. You will also add an image as well as a border for the background.
Presenting- You will have an opportunity to teach other students in our school about what your life is like in Asia. During the presentations you will read aloud your speech and teach others what you have learned.
