Documentaries

Documentaries, previously called Media presentations, may use videotapes, powerpoint presentations, or slide shows to tell about a historic entry related to the theme.

These entries require extensive use of visual materials and students should be certain that images are available for the topic they select.

20th Century topics are often good choices for documentaries.

These can be prepared by groups of up to five students or as an individual entry.

Documentaries should be clear, well scripted and focussed on one topic.
