October 4th class

Dear students,
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.

Presentation Feedback Form

Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
