ENG 4U: Analysis vs. Summary

Thanks to our first presenters, I think everyone has a good idea what can be done to make the visual component of a presentation more engaging.  Still, because I want to ensure that your analysis is equally as compelling, I have pushed back the presentation dates to Monday and Tuesday.

As you collaborate today, I really want you to focus on your analysis.  Your thesis and its subtopics should shape the organization of your work. While organizing your work around the structure of the plot may seem effective, it often leads to plot summary. Yesterday’s presentation was structured around the plot only because the presenters convinced me that it was the best method for their argument.
