WHAP Compare and Contrast Presentation Project Rippe



This project consists of several parts:

  • Research in the media center/Social Studies lab

  • Work on this at home, in lieu of usual homework reading/studying

  • Create a power point showing the areas of comparison and contrast of the two cultures you were assigned or selected. There MUST be some applicable pictures, maps, etc. in your power point. It must show COMPARISONS as well as CONTRASTS!!!

  • Participate in a “Foundations Fair” to present your findings.

  • Judge displays on “Best Appearance/Most Organized”, “Most Detailed”, “Best at Meeting Research Objectives”, etc.

  • Eventually you will write a comparison/contrast essay as well, which is one of the three main essays you will be required to write on the AP exam.
