Filed under: announcements,lessons — richardlstansfield @ 2:21 am

_ Step 1. Make your groups.

Get into groups of three or four students.

_ Step 2. Write down your group members’ names on the sheet of paper.

_ Step 3. Choose a day for your presentation.

Presentations will be on hour # 3, in the last several weeks of classes. There will be a maximum of three presentations (three groups) per class. The week of your presentation, before your presentation, you must make an appointment to see your teacher, Richard Stansfield, in his office.

mindMapFive
mindMap
mindMapSix
mindMapThree

_ Step 7. Write your text.

You and the other group members, as a team, write your text.

Suggestion: One person takes notes, and the others help.

Do not cut-and-paste from the Internet. (“Copy” = “복사”) Write it yourselves. Plagiarism (표절) will get you a score of zero/0 on your presentation.

Do not write in Korean and then translate. If you do, the English will be very bad and impossible to understand. Write in English from the beginning.

You should have numbers in square brackets (e.g. [1], [2], etc.) in your texts. Information before the numbers should match the numbers in front of references.

Text:

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~[1] ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~[2] ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~[3] ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~[4]

References:

[1] http:// ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

[2] http:// ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

[3] http:// ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

[4] http:// ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Below are examples of texts and references that were done properly.

Illegal Downloading

Real Name System on the Web

University Tuition

Cell-phone addiction

_ Step 8. Write discussion questions

Write at least two or three discussion questions.

I will put some of the discussion questions on the Final Speaking Exam. So, as a class, together, you are helping to make your own final exam.

_ Step 9. Who will do what?

( glossary, references, typing, and pictures )

Discuss with your group members. Each job must be done. Who will do which job? Decide.

– glossary. Explain any difficult vocabulary. You may copy from the Internet. Here is an excellent online dictionary for students of English:

Cambridge Online Dictionary

– references (Where did you get this information? Give the URL. e.g. online newspaper).

Here are some English-language Korean newspapers.

http://english.chosun.com/

http://english.donga.com/

http://english.hani.co.kr/kisa/section-014000000/home01.html

http://joongangdaily.joins.com/

http://www.koreaherald.co.kr/

http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/index.asp

http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/

http://world.kbs.co.kr/english/index.htm

They should be numbered.

[1] http:// ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

[2] http:// ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

etc.

– typing –> They have to be done in Microsoft Word, Notepad, or Open Office. It cannot be in Hangul, because my computer cannot read it.

– pictures (not necessary) –> Pictures should be separate from the text (different files). Also, they should be JPEG.

_ Step 10. Put your presentation on a USB flash drive/USB memory stick (Konglish: “USB”).

_ Step 11. Visit me in my office (5남246), where I will upload it onto my blog (https://richardlstansfield.wordpress.com/).
