What did I forget? • Did I list everything on my rubric? • Meals • Hotels • Activities • Pictures • Could you read my slides? • Did I know enough about my country? • Did I tell enough about my country? • What could have made this more interesting?
Oops! • In my original I forgot— • To tell a little more about my country— • Where it’s located • What it’s climate/weather is like • Info about its history • Any other cool facts • To explain some of my activities • I wouldn’t need to actually put them on a slide, but I would need to talk about them during the show • How much my trip costs! What’s the bottom-line for this tour? • Did I elaborate on meals/local food? • Not on the slide so I had better talk about that too during the presentation— • EGAD! The show is boring because transitions and special effects like sounds or animation are missing!!
Cost breakdown: • Air travel: $691 • Rail travel: $359 • Accommodation: $876 • Meals: $370 • Activities/site fees: $118 • Miscellaneous: $500 • Trip total: $2894
