June 2nd lesson

Dear students,
Today you will do your second class assignment by delivering a presentation about education. The criteria are the same as last time; speak for three minutes or more, make eye contact with the audience, speak clearly, be new and interesting, and show clear and effective visuals.
You should try to focus on your weak points from last time, and try to get the maximum of ten points.
Good luck!

May 26th lesson

Dear students,
Today you will learn a little about conclusions by reading your textbook. After that you should get ready for the following week`s presentation on education. Please remember to speak for three minutes or longer, to have good visuals, to make eye contact, and to say something new and interesting.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

May 19th lesson

Dear students,
Today you will deliver your first presentation. You should speak for at least three minutes per person. You may use presentation software (bring a USB stick, or log on to your Rikkyo account), or you could just use large sheets of paper.
You will be assessed on length of presentation (3 minutes or more), eye contact, topic interest (new and interesting to class), the clarity of your speaking, and the quality of your visuals.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

May 12th lesson

Dear students,
Last lesson you learned about giving evidence, transitions, and the importance of visuals. You will now soon be ready to present. You should have gathered information about your topic, communication, with members of your group for homework, and today you will assimilate your information to get ready for your first presentation next week.
Please show me your idea, outline, script, or graph, and I will offer advice. If you want to use presentation software, please do; it will make your presentation look professional. Your presentation should include at least one graph or chart that one of you should explain.
I am looking forward to your speeches.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
