African Ambassadors Project Guidelines
During Quarter 3, you have learned much about the history and culture of Africa. You have also had the opportunity to research a specific African nation. You and a partner will use your research to create a presentation you will give to diplomats from the United States and other countries from Africa. Your presentation should be both interesting and informative.
A successful presentation will include each of the following:
- A 6-slide (minimum) PowerPoint slideshow worth 50 points (see rubric)
- The slides should include the following information:
- Title Slide
- Your country’s physical geography, including any important landforms
- Your country’s history
- Your country’s environment and conservation issues
- Your country’s culture and human geography
- Free Space! Use this slide to include any information you found interesting that does not fall into the categories above, or to expand on something which does. This could include the current events you researched.
- Each slide must include a picture taken from an approved source. This will most likely be the same source you used to find the information you include on the slide.
- Your slide show must feature an attractive design. Be creative!
- A 3-5 minute presentation worth 20 points (see rubric)
- The presentation must include a demonstration or representation of some aspect of your country’s culture.
- This could include wearing something which represents typical dress in your country, demonstrating the proper way to greet a friend, a popular type of dance or anything else from your research.
- A 5-source minimum annotated bibliography following the instructions and examples given in class worth 30 points (see rubric). Note: even if it means you have to go over 5 sources, you must cite EVERYTHING you use in your presentation.
