July 5th lesson

Dear students,
Today is a preparation lesson for your final 5-6 minute presentations which will be held on July 12th and July 19th. You should plan to speak for longer than five minutes, but no longer than six. Everyone should be ready on the 12th, and your names will be called out at random. Those who are not ready when called to present will incur penalty points.
Your topic for your final presentation is countries, which includes historical or fictional nations if you wish. Remember to be new and interesting, to research well, and to think critically. A maximum of thirty points can be awarded for your final presentation, so please make sure to do a good job.
For delivery, you will be assessed on length (5-6 minutes), eye contact, English expressions, and your presentation slides.
For these talks, there is no need to give feedback; just listen, watch and enjoy.
Thank you to those who gave careful and considerate feedback online.

Chris Elvin
