Q. What exactly are we presenting?

liked or seriously disliked). I do not want you to get up and read the interview and/or the 2-
page paper. I will grade that part at a different time.
Q. How do I type my interview questions?
A. Just like you see here in this example.
Q. May I just copy the article interview questions and ask those to my female
A. Absolutely NOT. The woman in the article has a different life than your relative does. You
may ask a question like, "How would you feel if this happened to you?" referencing
something the woman in the article experienced. Please come up with your own original
questions for the interview. You want to make comparisons, but also contrast, the lives of
the women and your mom (or aunt/grandmother)
Q. I forgot what lady I am supposed to be reading about. How can I find out?
A. Scroll down to the bottom of this page and click on the document - WOW assigned
countries by class. Find your class period and your name. If you changed class periods and
can't find your name, check your old class period.
Q. I lost my assigned reading for Women of the World. Where can I get another
A. Under the Textbook and Homework link.

life, comparing/contrasting with your mom (as in the example poster), etc. Make it

A. No, those will both be turned in to me. You only have to talk about your visual aid, (and
something interesting from the article if you need to fill time to make 2 minutes).
Q. Do I have to type it?
Q. What if I get stuck over the weekend on what to do ?
A. Email me.
Q. What if I don't finish by the due date?

beginning of class. If you waited until the last weekend to start it, you did not follow
directions. SEE HANDOUT!
