July 8th Final Presentation

Dear students,
Today is the day of your final presentation, which is worth 30 percent of your grade. Please make sure that you are organized, and that you have memorized your presentation well enough so that you can deliver fluently. Because you will not be reading, you should be able to have much eye contact with your audience. Your slides should be clear, accurate, and intersting, and a stylish presentation would show about one slide every twenty seconds. You should talk for at least five minutes.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
