Over the next 3 weeks you should prepare a personal project presentation on the River Clyde. You will then present your project to the class the week beginning Monday 8th October.  The criteria and task sheet can be found below.

River Clyde Personal Project Presentation

Learning Outcome:  I can research a  given topic and create a detailed presentation.

I can describe the major characteristic features of Scotland’s landscape. SOC 2-07a

I can recognise how the features of spoken language can help in communication, and I can use what I learn.

I can recognise different features of my own and others’ spoken language. ENG 2-03a

Skill for Learning

Application & Knowledge: I can apply my knowledge of a given topic to plan and produce an interesting presentation.

 Skill for Work

I can organise my time and resources independently to ensure my presentation is completed in the allocated time.


To build further on your presentation skills you have to prepare a personal project to present to your peers. Presentations play a huge part in our learning and being able to present to your peers, with confidence, is a great skill to learn.


What you need to know: Your personal project should be about the River Clyde. You may choose any aspect you wish.

What you need to do: You can present your project in any way you choose. This might be in written form, a PowerPoint presentation, a booklet, a video or even a model. In other words, you have the choice to choose the way you feel will best help you to demonstrate your knowledge of your chosen topic. This project is all homework based therefore you need to think about the resources you will have access to: books, library, internet, personal accounts etc.

What you need to think about: You can use whatever you need to describe your personal project: photographs, videos, props etc. Try to think about why you picked this area for your project. What was it that interested you about it? Remember some people in class may know nothing about the area you have chosen to discuss, so you must explain it in detail.

How to get started: Get all of your ideas down on paper and then decide which ones are the most relevant and will best engage your audience. If you require any resources (paper, etc.) from school please ask.


Product Criteria

·         You have 3 weeks to pull your presentation together so use your time wisely. You will be presenting your information to the class the week beginning Monday 8th October 2018. Remember to try and present your information in a creative way.

·         This is an independent research project. It is your responsibility to organise your time effectively and ensure you are putting in enough effort.

·         Everyone will approach this task in different ways so don’t worry if your friends are doing something different from you. Have faith in what you have to say and it will all work out.

·         This is your chance to show just how well you can take responsibility for your own learning.

Happy researching!

  1. Mrs O’Neil,
    Abbey has locked her Glow account and wants to create a PPT. Are you able to unlock it and either tell her the new password or send it via this email?
    Kind regards

    1. Hi Mrs Rae,

      I am sure we can just reset her account. Leave it with me and I will sort it.

      Thanks for letting me know.

  2. Hi Mrs O’Neill,
    Miley was wondering how she should present her presentation. Should it be a powerpoint or on paper. I saw above about a Glow account, can you tell me what this is please?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Mrs Dempsey,

      Miley can present her presentation in any way she wishes. She can create a PowerPoint which she can email to me or complete on Glow. If she doesn’t have a Glow account we can set one up for her. If she would rather, she can create a poster or a model. It is entirely her choice.

      Hope this helps.
