To my students
1. Write an article about The Netherlands and/or Amsterdam. Go to one of these two links and choose 12/13 questions (you can also mix questions of the two documents). You wil find the answers using the links on the right of these two sites. When you have the answers, write a new chapter in your doc document, titled "The Netherlands and its capital, Amsterdam." You can add photos to illustrate your article. When the text is finished, paste it in a new entry in your blog.
2. Prepare an oral presentation with your findings. You must choose one topic and write a comment to this article to tell me what you are going to talk about. You can also choose one of the options at the end of the links above. You can use visual aids (photos, ppt, poster) to help you with your presentation.
You have three sessions to prepare your project. On the 8th of November you have to be ready for your oral presentation.
Before beginning the project make sure you have published all previous articles:
- about the exchange
- about who you are
- about Caldes town festival
- about Naalwijk
