May29th lesson

Dear students,
Everyone did a great job last week, so please keep it up. You are nearly all capable of getting very high gradees. If you want to aim for a "9" you will need to communicate more with your audience. Good luck with that.
Today you will prepare your next presentation about education in groups of three. If you show me your concept map, storyboard, or draft, I will give advice. Please remember to not cover too many topics in your short speech. One narrow topic with research and critical thinking is easier to follow than several in such a short time.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
