 Skill for Work

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

Task

What you need to know: Your personal project should be about any of the Greek Gods or Goddesses.

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. Please try to present your project in a different format from that of term 1.

What you need to think about: You can use whatever you need to describe your personal project: pictures, 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 4 weeks to pull your presentation together so use your time wisely. You will be presenting your information to the class the week beginning Monday 10th December 2018. Remember to try and present your information in a creative way.
