20140630064501suqub.jpg



Step 1: Choose a destination.

Choose ONE of the following countries to research and plan your group's vacation.
Italy
Ireland
Turkey
Malaysia
Belgium
Malawi
Sweden
Brazil
France
China
Spain


Step 2: Assign group member roles

Historian: This group member will research the history and culture of the chosen country. A minimum of 5 resources should be included in this research. You will need to communicate important history and culture to your group members so that they can use this information to plan the trip. You will write a 400-600 word description of the country's history and culture. 

Budget Planner: This group member will research and document the cost of your trip. This should include airfare, food, tourism activities, places to visit, ect. You will need to constantly be communicating with group members to determine the cost of different excursions in your country. You should use as many resources as necessary (include them in your budget) and document all trip expenses in a document or spreadsheet. You will need to do the final calculating of the trip per person. 

Itinerary Organizer: This group member will research and document the activities that your group will participate in on your trip. You should communicate with the Historian to find out what historical background and culture would be interesting for your group to experience. You will also need to communicate with your budget planner so all activities are accounted for in the final cost of the trip. You will need to document all planned activities in a document that will serve as the trip itinerary. (This should include at the very least: departure and arrival times, specific tours/site-seeing events, inner-country travel, restaurants/shopping experiences, ect)

(ALL) Presenter: All relevant trip information will be organized into a presentation. Your group will present this to the class in an effort to persuade them to take your trip. The presentation should include research completed by all group members and all group members should be present and participate in the presenting. 

Step 3: Research, Organize, Communicate

All group members should research and organize their information, while constantly communicating with one another about their findings. Each group member is responsible for his or her individual piece of the project, as well as participation in the group presentation.

Step 4: Presentation

Create the group presentation for your trip and present it to the class. Be sure to include information from your individual research as well as resources. Remember this presentation is supposed to persuade the class to take your trip!
