In general... I don't like to use or have students use presentation programs to present content in class. I find that folks too often spend too much time on presentation rather than content. I'd rather you read and re-read the article and comments and write out how you will lead discussion than have you spend what can end up being a huge amount of time putting everything into slides and then finding graphics, photos, etc. to make it all look good. Its the conversation that I'm looking for. HOWEVER, if you want to use powerpoint or some other presentation vehicle that's ok with me, and the sample I'm including here demonstrates the kind of thing it could be used for. Here are my guidelines:
- Use very few IF ANY graphics and photos.
- Focus on: 1) summarizing the article, 2) summarizing your critique, 3) showing patterns in comments, 4) bringing a few comments to the forefront to discuss and 5) summarizing what you've learned.
