Research Project Animal Farm 2017 (Okamoto)

Hello Parents... Mrs. Okamoto's English class has been assigned the Animal Farm Research Project. Students have already chosen a partner and their topic they will be researching. 

The project will include: 

1. Create a Works cited page (three books, one magazine and two websites)

2. Create a PowerPoint with the information gathered regarding the topic.  Sound, color and special effects are always good. Students cannot use an APPLE or MAC since it does not work with the equipment in the classroom, but that can use Prezi instead of Powerpoint slide. Prezi can be created and saved online, and assessed in any computer. 

3. Create a list of 10 questions for their topic to give to the class (35 copies). 

Final Project Due: Friday, May 19th

Presentations start the week of May 22nd: please see the attached list to view the date student will present with their partner. 

I attached the details with the project details above. 

I know the project may seem intense but will have a chance to go to the library and computer lab next week to research and start putting the information together.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
