Assignment and Rubric for Oral Presentation

The oral presentation is intended to introduce an author or literary work to the class.  The presentation should last 5-10 minutes.

Before the presentation

Go to the English 202 WIKI and post at least two websites about your author or work along with an introduction and commentary for those interested in learning about your topic.

During the presentation

Feel free to prepare a Powerpoint, Prezi, or Smartboard presentation.  (If you want the software for the Smartboard, you can download it, just let Dr. K know ahead of time and she will find the link for you.)  Do not have more than 20 words on a slide.  Please follow these guidelines.

Either e-mail your presentation to Dr. K before the class, or put the presentation on a flash drive or cloud so you can access it through the classroom computer.

After the presentation

Keep researching your topic, and make sure you keep those research sources organized.  Upload your sources into your personal Zotero account and share them on the World Literature 202 shared library.

You will be creating an annotated bibliography on some aspect of your author or work before creating your final project.

On September 17th we will be meeting in Kresge lab to create your WordPress Blog.  On October 24th we will be learning  Zotero.  If you want to learn how to do Zotero before that meeting, please let Dr. K know, and she will be happy to assist you!
