United Nations - Branches

        In groups of no more than 2 or 3 you are to TEACH the class about a one specific branch of the United Nations.

          To go with your presentation you are to also prepare something extra, whether that is a short movie, pamphlet, or poster. You do not have to do a PowerPoint. Please feel free use another means of presenting your information.

        I will leave the length of your presentation up to you as it is YOU teaching it to your classmates.

            As a guideline you should answer:

-          Where?

-          Who?

-          Background?

-          Numbers? Stats?

Your “TEACH” is worth 50 marks and your “add-on” to your project is worth 10 for a total of 60 marks. Now make sure that if your “add-on” is worth 10 marks that you make something worth 10 marks, not 5! *** If you were to make a movie I would obviously take that into consideration for the project as a whole… outside of the 10 marks…***

In a group of  2 or 3 people (or by yourself) you are going to create a presentation for the class on a specific tradition in another culture other than our own. In presenting this CULTURE to the class you must DECODE it, discussing some of their values and norms, language, their IDEAL values and REAL values, and material and non-material culture. This will help explain why the tradition you are talking about to the class exists today. Why do they still do it. How does it fit within THEIR value system. Remember in presenting these different cultures try to remain "culturally relative" and try not to bring in your own personal beliefs.

Use PowerPoint, show a video, give a handout... It's up to you!

Rubric:

Delivery - 10,  Content - 20,  Mechanics -10,  Use of pictures and video - 10,  VALUE - 50

Michael Moore’s   SICKO

        As a class we will view Michael Moore’s “SICKO”. During the movie you are to write down 20 points that are made that may seem questionable to you. You will hand these in attached to the back of your essay.

       For your essay you are to pick three (3) of these points and critique them to the best of your ability. Are they true? Partially true?

       Whether you are agreeing or refuting one of Michael Moore’s points you are to back it up with quality sources. Please make sure that the sources are accurate to the time period of the filming of the movie as well. (Example: Do not use a 2017 fact point to prove or disprove a point made in 2006)

 

        Please source on the page and provide a “Works Cited” page attached to the back  as well.

Value: 20

(Each answer, whether proving or refuting, is worth 10 marks. You will lose 5 marks for not providing a “Works Cited”, 2 for not having a proper title page, and 3 for not sourcing on the page. This rule will now apply for all assignments!)
