AP Human Geography – 2nd Quarter Project – CULTURE The second quarter project will be a partner project (no more than 3 people) and will evolve around our large culture unit that will take up the bulk of 2nd quarter. You will select a group of people who share a common culture and create a poster/oral presentation on your group. Your group may vary by scale; it may be as large as the United States (American culture) or as small as the Amish. As long as you can justify that your group does indeed share a common, unifying culture/identity that is unique from other groups. No two people/groups will do their project on the same group. You MAY NOT DUPLICATE a group someone else has already claimed.
Your Poster should include the following elements. Remember you will become the expert on your group and will teach the class. Each of the following categories should be addressed in your 5-7 minute presentation (At 7 minutes, you will be cut off; if you are under 5 minutes, there will be 5% deduction in your grade. It is important that you rehearse your presentation with your group so as to work out any timing issues. Use the guided questions to help frame each section.
Grades will be based on thoroughness, creativity, and accuracy. I will be looking to see that you covered all the material, that you were knowledgeable about your topic and well prepared to teach it, that you used the geography terminology, and that your poster presentation was creative and thoughtful, and that you really helped us to understand what it means to be a member of your group.
There will be a 20% penalty for any projects turned in late. Due Dates:
