Each student, having formed into a group of 4 and chosen an itinerary location, will research, prepare and present on that place upon arriving there. The presentation should be 15-20 minutes (with 10 mins or so of questions to follow). The purpose is to provide an overview of and orientation to the city. These should not be dry reiterations of basic data but rather useful, engaging introductions highlighting the interesting and important things our group will want to know about this place and what to look for (as we discussed in pre-session meetings). As a scholarly assignment it should be well researched but you can also be fun, creative, outside the box! Keep in mind where we are staying and what we are doing during our stay in that location (i.e. consult itinerary).
You should accompany your presentation with a one-page handout that is thoughtfully designed and useful (i.e. worth the use of paper). This will likely have a useful map and some key interesting / relevant facts. Make 32 copies in total.
