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
