Beyond the 5 Paragraph Essay

In this, the 21st Century, students have so many additional options available to them. We don't want them to feel limited to just the standard 5 paragraph essay. This page will offer some  ideas for presentation mediums, links to assistance in creating them, as well as ideas on how to improve upon the old classics. 21st Century Learners think out of the box. Each group will need to choose one presentation or project to present.

    Create a Commercial

    Prepare a commercial (an oral presentation)  for your county.  You are the local tourist advisor for the county and you want your audience to come visit your county.  Why would they want to come here?  What should they visit?  What are things people might want to purchase in your county (jewelry, art work, foods, etc.)? Where could they stay?  Where are good places to eat? Include interesting facts and information about your county.   Props are encouraged for your oral presentation, and you must create a travel poster or travel brochure for use in the presentation.

    PowerPoint Presentations

    PowerPoint is one option to create great electronic presentations that can include text, graphics, images, links, videos, and more!

    Video Presentations

    There are many software programs available for purchase to make movies on your computer, BUT whether you have a Mac or a PC, all computers have some basic movie making capability installed right from the factory.
