May 6th Lesson

Dear students,
Today you will deliver your group presentations about education. Please make sure to include research and personal opinion, and cite any sources you use (either orally or visually as a Powerpoint slide, for example.
The length of your presenation should average 2-3 minutes per person, and your score will be the same as your group members.
If you happen to be absent due to personal reasons, you should present in the following week. These presentations should also be 2-3 minutes, and should include introduction, body, and summary.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

Speaking of Speech

Dear students,
I have been told that I must use a textbook in the first semester, so if you still have a copy of Speaking of Speech please bring it to class. I don't want to use it too much, but we will have to use it for some of the time.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

April 29th class

Dear students,
Our next class is on April 29th. Please come to class with your materials so that you can prepare and practice your presentation on education in class. Your presentation should not be too general as you only have about three minutes per person to deliver your speech. You may use presentation software such as Microsoft Powerpoint if you wish. You can also show your information on paper or card if you prefer.
Your first assessed presentation will be delivered during the following week, May 6th. (Ignore my handout as it is innacurate). Remember to make eye contact and don't read.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

Welcome to Chris Elvin's Presentation Class Blog

Dear students,
Thank you for coming to class today.
This semester, our topics will be education, social issues, environment, and technology.
Next Tuesday, you should come to class with your list of notes so that  you can present your part of the group presentation. (You are not allowed to read your entire speech, but you may look at your notes).
After your group presentations, you will prepare an introduction to a topic. You may introduce yourself if you think it is necessary. Your introduction should get the audience's attention by providing information such as backgound facts or statistics, a story, a quotation, and why you are talking about your specific topic. We can discuss this more in class next week.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
