January 9th 2018 lesson

Dear students,
Today, the students who were unable to deliver their fourth presentation in December may do so now.
After that, you will prepare for you final five-minute solo presentation, which is worth thirty points. You may choose any topic from:
fashion
gender
globalization
human rights
language
media.
You should research well, think critically about your topic, and say something new and interesting. Consequently, please resist the temptation to rehash an old project - as that is not likely to be new nor interesting.
Also, in regard to your final presentation, please make an effort to communicate with your audience using your eyes.
Let me see your concept map, speech, or slides today.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
