 Directions:
 Over the next few weeks you will be given time in class to create a digital
 culture triangle for a country where your language is spoken. You will use
 this Word Notebook to record your research and create your culture triangle.
 Take a moment to flip through all the tabs on your notebook.

 Now, go to the file menu  Save as, and save this document to your
 computer. Name the file: My CT_ [your last name]


 As we discussed in class, before making your culture triangle, you must
 research three related topics. Please make your selections on the
 “Country/Topic” page before starting your research.
