May 10th lesson

Dear students,
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 ).
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

April 26th lesson

Dear students,
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.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
