– do NOT be late for your presentation!
– introduce yourselves
– introduce your topic
– go over the vocabulary
– explain the correct pronunciation of each vocabulary item, including correct stress (e.g. “conDITioner”)
– all members participate in presenting (Divide the presentation amongst all members.)
– explain any pictures (e.g. “This is a picture of Korean figure skater Kim Yu-na, taken at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.”)
– look at your audience when you speak
– don’t speak in a monotone
– look and sound “alive,” not “dead”
– You can occasionally look quickly at small, hand-sized cards with your main points on them. Do not read from them or look at them for too long. You can just glance at them, and then look quickly back to your audience.
– respect other groups when they do their presentations (pay attention, don’t talk, etc.)
* This is the procedure:
1. Stand at the front of the class, introduce yourselves, and introduce your topic.
2. Present the Glossary.
3. Present the text and explain the pictures.
4. Ask your classmates (the audience) if they have any questions. If they do, answer their questions.
5. Go back to your seats and sit down.
6. Mr. Stansfield will go over the Discussion Questions.
7. Everybody in the class will discuss the questions.
Note: I judge the writing of your presentation (having all components, such as vocabulary, and in the right order). I judge by what appears on my web-site, not on what appears on Power Point presentations, etc.
