You will work in groups of 4-5 people; each group will be responsible for researching and presenting their information pertaining to the times of Julius Caesar to the class through a PowerPoint presentation. Make sure you go in depth and truly analyze your topic—you are responsible for teaching the class your information. Do not simply read from your slides—you want to SHOW us you understand your topic through the information you present. Your PowerPoint should be an overview of your topic—you should have information [notecards] with you to help you teach more information to the class. Topics and partners will be assigned to you.  Each person in the group is responsible for speaking during the presentation; make sure you organize PRIOR to the presentation who will be doing what. There will be responsibilities of the group, in order to earn the group grade, and responsibilities of you as an individual, to earn an individual grade. Everyone will be quizzed on the material at the end.
