<h3><font color="#7800a7">INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE PRESENTATIONS REQUIREMENT</font></h3>

<p>Most sessions will feature one or more student presentations that will give you a chance to hear different perspectives on the course readings, and I will also post the written versions students send me to a special blog so those interested can review them. Your presentations will also help me determine the direction my own comments, encouraging me to respond to your ideas rather than lecture continuously. See the syllabus for the presentation requirement's value as a percentage of the course grade.</p>

<p>1. <u>On the first day of class</u>, look over the authors or texts on our syllabus and then, next to your name on the roll sheet I will pass around, <u>suggest several authors or texts that you might like to present on</u>. I'll try to give you the choices you have made, to the extent that the schedule permits. Depending on class size, each student will give two or three presentations. Be aware that if you choose only very popular authors or texts (Jane Austen, <i>Hamlet,</i> etc.), I may need to schedule you for something different.</p>

<p>2. <u>Within a few days, check the schedule on this page</u> to see when and on which authors and questions you are slated to present. I will complete the schedule by choosing specific question/s to be addressed from among the full sets. You can access all author questions using the links below or by visiting the <b>E211 QUESTIONS PAGE</b>. (They are also available from the syllabus and journals pages.)</p>

<p>3. As early as you can before the in-class presentation, <u>email me a written draft</u> of the remarks you plan to make about the author/question you've been assigned. This draft should be proofread and spell-checked; it should also be substantive and refer to the actual language of the text being discussed, with page numbers, act/scene/line, or verse lines provided as appropriate. Include a copy of the question above your response. For any subsequent presentations, email me a draft at least five days in advance and I will soon email you comments either suggesting how the presentation might be improved or affirming that what you've written sounds fine. If the latter is the case, I will post your draft to the <b>E211 BRITISH LITERATURE TO 1760 STUDENTS' BLOG</b> <u>If, however, my return comments on the draft you sent me (whether intended as rough or final) suggested revisions, email me a final version at least one day before you present in class, again making sure to include a copy of the question at the beginning of your draft.</u>, I will then post the revised version to the blog.</p>

<p><u>Insightful responses are better than "answers"</u>. I encourage you in advance to develop your remarks so that they go beyond the question at its simplest. The office hour (or email consultation for second and subsequent presentations, if any) and "advance final draft" requirement is 30% of your grade for the presentation.</p>

<p>4. <u>On the scheduled day and when we reach the appropriate point in our discussion, I will ask you to come to the front of the class and give the most up-to-date version of your presentation.</u> Your presentation should take about <u>five minutes</u>. Some students prefer to read their comments lecture-style, while others prefer to depart from the full written version and speak from a separate outline. If you read from prepared remarks, how long should they be? I'll use my own pace as an example: I speak at an average rate of 130 words per minute when I read conference papers. So a 5-minute presentation would run 650 words. <u>Tips</u>: Read the question first, address the entire class, and remind us of page numbers when you quote. Speak firmly and slowly enough so that everyone can follow. It's best to avoid bringing technology such as Powerpoint into play given the presentations' brevity. But I am open to creative ideas. I will <i>not</i> grade your in-class performance closely — it's easy to do well if you prepare in advance and make a good effort, and your colleagues will be supportive. Completing the in-class component is 70% of the grade for each presentation.</p>

<p>5. <u>Please check the schedule below on this page to verify the current status of your in-class presentation and blog entry.</u> Within a few days after you've completed both, next to your name should appear the notation <b>(Presented/Posted to Blog)</b>. If you see other notations as indicated below in "How I Evaluate Presentations," please contact me by email.</p>

<h3><font color="#7800a7">HOW I EVALUATE PRESENTATIONS</font></h3>

<p>I will judge presentations on the following grounds: did the student 1) meet with me or email me a timely advance final draft so that I can offer advice and determine the course of my own comments? and 2) seem to have put genuine effort into preparing rather than treating the presentation as a barren "answer" to a question set in stone? Students who do those two things will receive an "A" for the presentations requirement. I am not going to grade presentations so much on "in-class" factors as on how well students prepare and (again, if necessary) follow up. I will indicate whether students have completed the requirements as follows: <b>(Presented in Class and Posted to Blog),</b> <b>(Presented in Class but Blog Entry Pending),</b> <b>(Missed Presentation),</b> <b>(Rescheduled Presentation)</b>.</p>

<h3><font color="#7800a7">MISSED PRESENTATIONS / RESCHEDULING PRESENTATIONS</font></h3>

<p>If you find that you will be unable to make it to class for one of your scheduled presentations, please let me know in advance if possible. (I'll make my cell phone number available when the semester begins, though I won't post it on the Internet.) So long as you have provided me with a timely advance draft of your remarks (I usually print them out and bring them to class), I will read the presentation for you and give you partial credit for the "in-class" portion of the presentation grade. If you haven't provided me with a final advance draft, I will not read it in class. In such cases, rescheduling on a new author or text may be possible at my discretion and if the schedule allows.</p>

<h3><font color="#7800a7">PRESENTATION / SESSION SCHEDULE</font></h3>

<p>Below is a list containing four things for each session: the authors/texts we will discuss, the number of each study question I've chosen for discussion, the presenters' names, and the color-coded status of the presentation. The author hyperlinks below will take you to the relevant study questions pages — they are the same pages from which you choose questions for your journal sets. *Please note that I may specify two questions rather than one (as in "12-13 combined") if I find that two short questions go together well.</p>

<h3><font color="#7800a7">HOW I EVALUATE PRESENTATIONS</font></h3>

Students who do those two things will receive an "A" for the presentations requirement. I am not going to grade presentations so much on "in-class" factors as on how well students prepare and (again, if necessary) follow up. I will indicate whether students have completed the requirements as follows: <b>(Presented in Class and Posted to Blog),</b> <b>(Presented in Class but Blog Entry Pending),</b> <b>(Missed Presentation),</b> <b>(Rescheduled Presentation)</b>.</p>

<h3><font color="#7800a7">MISSED PRESENTATIONS / RESCHEDULING PRESENTATIONS</font></h3>

<p>If you find that you will be unable to make it to class for one of your scheduled presentations, please let me know in advance if possible. (I'll make my cell phone number available when the semester begins, though I won't post it on the Internet.) So long as you have provided me with a timely advance draft of your remarks (I usually print them out and bring them to class), I will read the presentation for you and give you partial credit for the "in-class" portion of the presentation grade. If you haven't provided me with a final advance draft, I will not read it in class. In such cases, rescheduling on a new author or text may be possible at my discretion and if the schedule allows.</p>

<h3><font color="#7800a7">PRESENTATION / SESSION SCHEDULE</font></h3>

<p>Below is a list containing four things for each session: the authors/texts we will discuss, the number of each study question I've chosen for discussion, the presenters' names, and the color-coded status of the presentation. The author hyperlinks below will take you to the relevant study questions pages — they are the same pages from which you choose questions for your journal sets. *Please note that I may specify two questions rather than one (as in "12-13 combined") if I find that two short questions go together well.</p>
