Istanbul powerpoint

Embed Size (px)


A powerpoint made many years ago about Istanbul. One of my favourite cities. The purpose of making this was to demonstrate to a class that I was teaching how I wanted them to do their powerpoints. The object was to choose a city that would be a good destination for a school trip. The purpose of using it at TUS was to give you a bit of a feel for Istanbul before I gave you model paragraphs on it. All cities have some similarities, writing about Istanbul will help you write about any city.
