Work Session: You guys are going to be working on researching whichever aspect of Ibo culture you chose with your group on Tuesday. You’ll need to prepare a 3-5 minute presentation on what you find out. Today, your goal should be researching your cultural aspect and how it changed during and after colonialism. I’ll give everyone an Ibo Culture Research Sheet and on Wednesday, Mrs. Wright or Mrs. Allen will go over how to use the school databases for your research.

You will have all day today, tomorrow, and Friday to conduct your research and make and practice your presentation. All groups must be ready to go on Monday, December 11th. Some of you may not present until Tuesday, but everyone needs to be ready to go on Monday.
