Today is your final presentation. You should speak for at least five minutes. Everyone should be ready to present today as the order of the speeches will be chosen by random number. Students who are not ready will lose ten points.
Today you will prepare for your final presentation in January. You may present about anything you want so long as it is well researched, has an element of critical thinking, and is over five minutes in length. This presentation is worth 30 points. If some of you slip up on this day, you may not get the "A" that you have been on course for. More worryingly, even if some of you do quite well in your final presentation you still may not pass. You have been warned!
Today you will prepare your speeches for the following week's presentation on gender. You should make sure that your slides are clear and that you use them to make your presentation understandable. Your teacher will check your map, speeches, or slides, if you wish.
Your fourth topic is gender. Before you start preparing your next presentation, you will try to discover the gender of your brain with an activity that you should print out and bring to class: What gender is your brain?
After this has finished, please work in pairs or alone. If you are a pair, you should work together and present about the same topic. Show me your map, storyboard slides and English, if you wish. Your speech will be in two weeks time, so there will be plenty of time to get ready. Here is a checklist of things that you should remember about presenting: make lots of eye contact to your audience (If you ignore them, they will ignore you.)show charts, images, and mapsexplain your slides welldon't read your slidesdo your researchthink criticallybe interestingshow enthusiasm for your topic
Today you will prepare your speeches and slides in order to present about globalization the following week. Your presentation information should be new to the audience, well researched, interesting, and contain a critical thinking element. You may bring your computer to class to make your slides or write your speech if you wish.
For many of you, your second presentation was better than your first, so congratulations!
There are a few points I would like to mention. First, some of you are perhaps trying to say too much in too little time. You only have three minutes or so, so it is difficult to say much. Keep it simple and let the slides do the talking. Two or three slides per minute is fine. Secondly, if you don't engage with the audience with your eyes, you will fail to impress, so please use your eyes to communicate.
Remember these points:
length of speech
clear, error-free slides
Today, you will talk about globalization, so please download and bring the slides to class. globalization 1
(You may notice some bias in this text. Please think critically as you read!) globalization 2
Today you will present about human rights in groups of three. You should talk for at least three minutes per person. You will be assessed on content (new, interesting, researched, critical thinking) and delivery (eye contact, length, professionalism, enthusiasm).
The quality of your slides is also important, so please make them clear and error free.
Today you will study about human rights. First you will shadow your partner using the Universal Declaration of Human Rights download below: http://www.eflclub.com/rikkyo/humanrights3.pdf
After that you will choose one of the articles of the UDHR to research in detail. You may report on a specific case if you wish. For example, see below: http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/people/features/ihavearightto/four_b/all_rights.shtml
Or you may pursue your own research.
1) Your introductions are important; They tell the audience what you will talk about.
2) Remember to research well and think critically. When you present, you will talk for three minutes minimum, give lots of eye contact, have clear informative slides, and show professionalism at all times.
Today you will deliver your first presentation about the media. Please remember to do your research, think critically, and to say something new and interesting. If you do so, your group will earn 4 points each. Individually, you should speak for three minutes or more to earn three points, and you should make regular eye contact with the audience to earn another three points.
You will have about twenty minutes to prepare. Your presentations should use presentation software so please don`t forget your thumbstick, and you should have a back up, too. For example, you could keep a copy of your file on the university server.
Please use the online form below to provide feedback to your classmates. You may write in English or Japanese and your comments should help your fellow students to learn and improve.

You will be able to read the responses once you have completed the form. (People who don't submit a form will not be able to see the responses).You should submit your form every time you give feedback to a student.
Today you will prepare for your presentation about social isssues that you will deliver on the 31st of May. The grading for this presentation will be five points for how well you explain your visuals, and five points for delivery. You should speak for at least three minutes, and use eye contact often with the audience.
Let me check your slides today. I may be able to offer some advice.
Today you will learn how to explain visuals, so please bring three different types of visuals to class. You may bring a bar chart, a line graph, a diagram, a flow chart, a pie chart, an illustration, a map, or even a photograph.
Today will be the day you deliver your first presentation on education. You will be assessed on content ( a holistic score for the whole group - remember to say something interesting ), and delivery. You will be assessed individually for delivery (speak for three minutes minimum, don't read, make regular contact with your audience ).
Today you will, as a class, choose the same broad theme from: communication, education, social issues, environment, technology and values. Once the theme is chosen, please narrow down the topic within your group. You will be in five groups of four. Draw an outline, use presentation software, and practice your speeches.
