Part I:  Internet Research

In groups, you will be responsible for researching the following areas:

•  The Shah of Iran—his role in government and reasons for his overthrow.
•  Islam—major beliefs of the religion and why some religious groups
      felt the revolution was necessary
•  Society in Iran—institutions such as schools, religion, families,
      government.
•  Culture in Iran—movies, music, art, fashion.

 

Use the following links to respond to the prompts for each area.  Questions can be obtained by downloading the attachments below.  Type your responses in the space provided for each question.  Once all questions have been responded to, print and pass in.  You and your partner can decide on how to approach the work.  You can divide the work up evenly or you may elect to work on each question together.  It's up to you!

Part II:  PowerPoint Presentation

Each group will put together a number of slides for a formal presentation in class. These slides should be the basis for the information you relay to the rest of the class, but they should not just be slides with written material on them. Use color, pictures, clip art, and text to create an attractive and meaningful presentation. Don’t read your slides to us; rather, use notes to speak extemporaneously, or pre-record your narration. It is recommended that you rehearse your timings and presentation together. You will be assigned a group grade for your participation in the project in addition to being assigned an individual grade for your reflections on the group work.

 

The focus of your presentation is explained in the Task.  Be sure to review the rubric in the Evaluation before beginning your presentation.
