Vietnam Memorial & Educational Center On our trip to the New Jersey Vietnam Memorial and Education Center, you will work with one, two or three classmates to thoroughly examine the topic area assigned. All groups will be required to produce a PowerPoint designed to provide the rest of the class with the key information from their area. This project will be used to fulfill the 10th Grade PowerPoint requirement. Groups Assigned Topic Area Number Group Members Vietnam 2 The Changing World Order 3 First Indochina War 2 The Cold War Intrudes 3 Second Indochina War 2 Americanization 4 Turning Point: 1968 3 Vietnamization 3 Aftermath & Legacies 3 Responsibilities During Visit Upon arrival at the education center, we will be guided to the center of the facility where we will be introduced to several Vietnam Veterans and a video presentation of other veterans, family members and protestors. Watch the video presentation for a few minutes to get a sense of the emotional strain faced by the veterans and their relatives. You may want to paraphrase some of the comments (and cite them) for use during your presentations. Once you are dismissed from the center area with the monitor, find your assigned area and quickly decide how you want to delegate work within your group. Carefully read all of the information within your section and record information that you can use. Use the camera to take pictures of visuals that you may want to use. You may also get images from the Internet at a later time. Be sure everyone in your group reads through all of the displays within your section, even the parts that are assigned to someone else. Each of you is required to be an expert in your area. Use the veterans that are available to you. They often have more personal information that can be used in your presentations. If you want to use information from the veterans, ask their permission first and be sure to get the proper spelling of their name for the citation. (BONUS POINTS for using the VETS) Once your group has finished examining your own section, take time to explore the rest of the center. Pay special attention to the personal letters located around the inside of the circle. You may want to quote some of this material in your presentations. After you are given time to explore the educational center, you will be broken into two groups and escorted outside to the memorial by one of the veterans. Take advantage of the opportunity to again ask questions of the veterans and take pictures of anything that you feel you might be able to use for your presentation. Responsibilities For Presentations Check When Completed Each group will prepare a PowerPoint presentation that includes at least 3 content slides per person. (This does not include any title slides or concluding slides.) Each slide MUST contain a title and at least one visual, and relevant information on your topic(s). Each group member must prepare at least 1 in-depth discussion question that appears on the PowerPoint. There must be at least 1 Action Button with a link to an Internet site that helps support the topic(s) of the slide per person. Each slide must have a completed “Notes” section that includes more detailed information than what’s on the slide, and MLA citations for all information and pictures on the slide. In addition, you must have responses to your discussion question and at one additional follow-up question with possible answers. Visuals should be relevant to the topic(s) on the slide and should allow for in-depth discussion. Visuals do NOT have to be from the Education Center. At least one graph, chart or map must be included for each person in your group and it must help reinforce the topic(s) of the slide. All group members must participate in the presentation of your PowerPoint. The presentation must be between 3-4 minutes per person. (Ex. 3 people = 9-12 minutes) Each group must prepare guided notes for the class to complete during the presentation. Students should only be required to write notes that appear on the slide itself, not concepts that are only said by you. Guided Notes must be in a Word document and emailed to Mr. DeTample. Each group must prepare at least 6 assessment questions with an answer key (1 Short Response & 5 Multiple Choice) Refer to the attached rubric for more details on the above requirements. Scoring Area Points Presentation 50 Internet Research/Links 5 Guided Notes 5 Assessment Questions 5 Individual 10 Do not rely solely on information from the field trip. You will need to supplement the information gathered on the trip through Internet research and use of your textbook. This is an in-class assignment. If you use you class time wisely, none of it will be homework.
