content (including research and critical thinking) - 3 points

pronunciation - 2 points
Good luck,
Chris Elvin

Dear students,
Today you will prepare your globalization presentations that you will give on November 11th. The assessment criteria will be slightly different from your first presentation. The criteria will be fluency (not reading), clarity of expression (grammar range and accuracy, vocabulary, use of transitions, etc.), pronunciaton (ease of listening), and content (research, critical thinking, new and interesting).
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

October 14th lesson

Dear students,
Today you will do the first of four ten-point presentations as part of a group. You should speak for at least three minutes each. Your delivery will probably be better if you use presentaion software than if you do not. You will be assessed on fluency (eye contact and not reading), content, delivery, and research and critical thinking.
Good luck!
