U.S. Presidents Oral Presentation Assignment

Resource Title:  U.S. Presidents Oral Presentation Assignment

Brief Description of Resource:  In this assignment, students find information about a U.S. president in a print encyclopedia. They answer questions about their president, and then make an oral presentation to the rest of the class. Students have two sessions in the library – the first session is an orientation to the library and print encyclopedias, and how to use the encyclopedia. At the second session, they complete the worksheet about their president. This assignment was developed for an ESL intermediate level class. Students also learn that they don’t have to understand every word in the article to learn something about their president, and they are encouraged to guess words they don’t know. Students scan the article to find the information required for their presentation, and take notes. Included: Library Orientation Worksheet, Presidents presentation assignment, list of presidents.
