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
