Middle East Geography Re: Teach

Feel free to use the CIA WORLD FACTBOOK.

By next Thursday, create a few slides to profile your country when you present it to the class… Email it to Justin & Peter. Also, post your country presentation on your site (either the exact slideshow, or an adaptation, or link to a Prezi or Google Doc) by Thursday. Make sure your brief presentation includes:

  • The country’s name: + capital & geographic placement + a visual political map
  • Info on – Gov’t/Economy
  • Info on – Physical Geography (Shape…)
  • Info on – People/Society
  • Info on – Relevant Current Event(s)

Spring Semester Syllabus

Welcome back y’all!

If you have a chance, please look this syllabus over before class; we’ll be discussing it tomorrow. Our first day back should help us look ahead, reset our course, and catch up… You’ll even have the opportunity to select a micro teaching topic. Further, look over the senior-year-final-exam_rubric that was used last year & will be used this year for your final exam microteaching.
