1/22 Update to Project Due Dates:
Recipe/Music Lyrics - If you need ME to make copies for the class, it is due to me no later than 3PM THURSDAY.  Otherwise, you should bring your own copies to distribute during your presentation.  (If lyrics - plan to hand them out when you play your song so we can sing/read along.  If recipe - plan to hand it out when you talk about traditional foods.)

Presentations need to be shared with me by Friday (before class).  Make sure each slide is creative, colorful, and correct (no more than 3 words - in French!  No English).  You are talking about the slides, not reading them.

Presentations will begin Friday and continue Monday.  Your group should be well rehearsed and enthusiastic about your chosen country.  Eye contact, voice level, and body language are important to keep in mind.  Practice will make these parts easier.
