October 7th class

Dear students,
Today is preparation for your first presentation on October 14th. You should research your topics in advance and finalize your speeches today. If you want to use presentation software, please bring your computer to class. I can check your visuals if you wish.
Your presentations should be three minutes per person, and should include research (other people`s ideas) and critical thinking (your group`s original opinions). You should also remember that organization, grammar, vocabulary, content and delivery are important.
If you want to deliver your presentation today, please tell me in class. Otherwise, you should be ready to present on the 14th.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
