My VANAS Presentation

Though the embedded presentation won’t make a whole lot of sense unless you were to see it along with my explanations, hopefully you get the gist. (And I apologize for my inability to figure out how to resize the slides to fit the screen.)

Once a year the international schools of Venezuela (VANAS) get together for a conference. At said conference there is a keynote speaker, mediocre catering, and presentations given by the teachers themselves. This year I signed up to present. My presentation was simply about the curriculum I have developed for my 8th grade social studies class. I thought the presentation was a success and hopefully I inspired the teachers who attended.

The VANAS conference basically takes any presentation they can get and is  more or less seen as a practice for the bigger AASSA conference, which is being held in Sao Paulo this year. AASSA is where all the American Schools of South America get together. However, in order for the school to pay your way for that one, you have to be accepted as a presenter. I was lucky in this regard and I’ll be sure to post about the Sao Paulo trip when it comes around.
