INSPIRING PEOPLE

You have been chosen by a famous publishing house. They need to hire good editors  because they want to launch a new series  of digital biographies for esl learners. They're planning to set up 3 different levels  of  Readers ( survival level, half-way level, expert level)

You will be working in pairs or groups to learn as much as possible about famous people who made history. 

You will choose your inspiring person

You will explore all the resources on your assigned inspiring person

You will have to decide if you're going to prepare a biography for the survival, half-way or expert level

At the end you will produce both a written biography and a video  using imovie or adobe spark video. 

 

You have to:

1) explore the online resources related to your famous person using your ipads or computers ( audio, video, texts )
