Project 1

Cultural Sites Project

2 Parts

Part 1 – Class Report Assignment

  • Sign up for a set of Paris cultural sites
  • Research your 2/3 cultural sites
  • Prepare a brief (3-5 minutes) presentation on each place
    • Include:
      • Location (actual, neighborhood, what it’s near- mark it on the map)
      • History/development
      • Cultural significance to the city/country
      • What are they known for?
      • Recent events or changes?
      • Anything interesting?
      • Show us lots of pictures – We LIKE pictures.
    • This can be any type of presentation as long as the whole class can see it

Part 2 – Project 2
In Paris:

  • Go to at least 1 of your assigned sites (both/all if you can)
  • Take lots of pictures
    • Outside
    • Inside – where possible (if there is an inside)
    • Have fun with your friends while you are there – take good pictures with them
  • Take notes
    • Who else is visiting the site?
    • What is the mood of the place? (somber, fun, serious, lost)
    • What is everyone doing?
    • Is there what you expected?
    • Did you discover anything new while you were there?
    • What did you think of the place? Like it? Not like? Would you take family or friends?
  • Post all this on Facebook for everyone to see by 5/21.  We will probably make individual pages or events for each site so that you have room to post.
