Today, you have two things to focus on…
Make sure that your presentation is built around arguments (remember…answer your questions). Provide evidence that supports these arguments; remember, providing specific details will help you meet the time requirements.
You also need to work on the visual element of your presentation. Regardless of the form you choose, you need to:
- openly state your thesis in the opening moments of the presentation
- give the audience a route map of the presentation. Tell us something like “First, Joe will take about (insert his big idea/topic here); next, Pat will talk about (insert his big idea/topic here). Finally, Jessica will talk about (insert her big idea/topic here).”
- include specific references to your novel (remember…page numbers must be included for quotations)
- include specific references to your secondary sources
