Here is our schedule for the next few days:

Monday (today)

I’d like you to evaluate a presentation I will deliver. Let’s see if you can identify:

  • a clear thesis
  • an introduction that provides a “route map” for the presentation
  • subtopics that act like mini-thesis statements
  • specific references to sources
  • explanation/analysis of the sources

Tuesday

You and your partners will present your work to another pair/group. This will give you a chance to not only practice your presentations but also experiment with a conversational style.

Wednesday and Thursday

Presentations!
