YEAR 1 BACC.-The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time: Final video


You have time to finish the book until 17th April. On that date, you should either bring to school a personal video about the book in your pendrive, or upload your video to your Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive, Sync, pCloud, Box, Mega or any other storage platform and send the link to the teacher.

The video should comply with the following requirements:

-          It will last between 2-4 minutes.

And the following content:

- A summary of the book, with special emphasis on the last chapters.

- A general description of each one of the characters.
