In groups of 2-4, choose 4 areas of study from the lists below. Make sure you choose two from each list. Over the course of the semester you will have to complete 4 presentations. Each presentation should contain at least 500 words of writing but can take any format (eg. a Powerpoint presentation, a short film etc.) It must not be simply a written piece and MUST NOT BE COPIED AND PASTED FROM THE INTERNET. No marks will be given for a presentation like this.

You will need to present and explain your work to the class and give the class 10 questions on your presentation.

The first presentations will take place in week 3.

To start (for Friday 9th February):

1) How much do you already know on your chosen areas?

2) How will you find out what you need to learn?
