My Experience in the U.S. Create several slides here to show pictures of your time spent in the U.S. about where you lived, what you did, and who you met.
My trip to… Use this slide to insert pictures from your time in the U.S. so that students can see more personal pictures. Dont be afraid to insert pictures of yourself! Anyone can look up pictures of monuments on the internet or in a book, but by seeing you at these locations personalizes a trip.
How to Get to the USA Talk to your parents Visit your school counselor and see what programs are available Apply for a program Get your passport Pack your bags Keep in touch (international calling cards, international cell phones, s, and letters)
Living Arrangements Living arrangements vary from one locations to another. Possibilities include residence halls, host families, and boarding houses. In some cases you will have a meal plan, in other cases your host family will provide your meals.
This is where I lived… Use this slide to insert pictures or to discuss the living arrangements you experienced. If you lived both with a family and in a different setting, use those experiences to contrast. You could write pro/cons of different living set ups, or include a funny memory of culture shock or something surprising. Remember, the kids are interested in hearing about you, and hearing your story may enable them to not feel so scared about living away from home.
