December 20th lesson

Dear students,
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!
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
