-Describe your experience with a tradition or custom celebrated in your town or community.
-Describe your experience with a religious celebration special to your town or community.
-Describe and share stories about why people settled in your town or community.
-Describe why people should visit your town or community.
-Describe an experience of either playing a sport, or watching a sport in your town or community.
-Describe your religious traditions in your town or community.
-Describe places of importance or mention historical buildings in your town or community.

Guidelines:
Each of us will be doing an online presentation. The topic of our presentation is: A Celebration of Our Towns and Communities

Each of us is free to interpret this according to our local needs. We can also determine the type of technology we want to use with our students and how our students will present their work. We can design and place all that work on our own separate Wiki page (we can add pages to the current Wiki and link them back to the main page). It could be a combination of stories, Powerpoints, linked Web pages, mp3 files, pdfs, video files, etc.

We are looking for student experiences, and not factual information that can easily be retrieved off the Internet.

Instead of sending work to each other, we should edit and compile all the information into our own presentation. It would be great if we addressed all the topics, but in reality, we may find it better to pick and choose topics depending on student interest and the direction we want our class to follow.
