December 20th lesson

Dear students,
Today you will prepare for your final presentation in January. You may present about anything you want so long as it is well researched, has an element of critical thinking, and is over five minutes in length. This presentation is worth 30 points. If some of you slip up on this day, you may not get the "A" that you have been on course for. More worryingly, even if some of you do quite well in your final presentation you still may not pass. You have been warned!
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

December 6th lesson

Dear students,
Today you will prepare your speeches for the following week's presentation on gender. You should make sure that your slides are clear and that you use them to make your presentation understandable. Your teacher will check your map, speeches, or slides, if you wish.
Kind regards,

November 29th lesson

Dear students,
Your fourth topic is gender. Before you start preparing your next presentation, you will try to discover the gender of your brain with an activity that you should print out and bring to class:
What gender is your brain?
After this has finished, please work in pairs or alone. If you are a pair, you should work together and present about the same topic. Show me your map, storyboard slides and English, if you wish. Your speech will be in two weeks time, so there will be plenty of time to get ready. Here is a checklist of things that you should remember about presenting:
  • make lots of eye contact to your audience (If you ignore them, they will ignore you.)
  • show charts, images, and maps
  • explain your slides well
  • don't read your slides
  • do your research
  • think critically
  • be interesting
  • show enthusiasm for your topic
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

Dear students,
Today you will present about globalization. Ideally, one group should present about one aspect of globalization. This will be easier to understand and hopefully more interesting.
