Soon we will begin reading the graphic novel Persepolis, the story of a teen-age girl in Iran during the Islamic revolution in the mid 1970’s. In order to completely appreciate her story, we need to learn more about Iran and its society, culture, and institutions during that time period, and we will be doing that with the help of a webquest. This may sound like a lot of research, but you will be responsible for only a small part of the entire research project.
Part I: The WebQuest
In groups, you will be responsible for researching one of the following areas:
Part II: PowerPoint® Presentation
Each group will put together a number of slides (three per person in your group unless otherwise negotiated) for a formal presentation in class. These slides should be the basis for the information you relay to the rest of the class, but they should not just be slides with written material on them. Use color, pictures, clip art, and text to create an attractive and meaningful presentation. Don’t read your slides to us; rather, use notes to speak extemporaneously or pre-record your narration. Time limit for the presentation is two minutes per person in your group unless otherwise negotiated, so plan your time wisely together and rehearse your timings and presentation together. Your work will be assessed by a rubric. You will be assigned a group grade and an individual grade.
