As the final product of this assignment you will process everything that you have heard, seen and read in a visual impression of a refugee camp, together with a group of your classmates.
Besides, you will make at least two, but preferably all four of the virtual tours in Refugee Republic.
With this creative impression you will show that you have reached your teaching objectives.
The final product will be graded by your teacher.
When your teacher is evaluating your assignment, he/she will pay special attention to:
- Content: Does your own refugee camp show what life in a camp is actually like?
- Form: Was your creative assignment made with care?
- Language mistakes: Do your answers to the questions and the final assignment not contain too many language mistakes?
You will work by yourself for this lesson. The final product will be made in small groups.
