General Instructions. On the first day of class, students will sign up for two or three (depending on class size) three-to-five minute in-class presentations on authors from our syllabus. I will then choose the specific question/s to be addressed from among the full set and will complete the schedule on this page. Students can access all questions for the relevant authors via the links below or by visiting the Questions Page. Each session will feature one or more presentations. See the syllabus for the presentation requirement's value as a percentage of the course grade.

Specific Instructions. Check the schedule below to see when your presentations will occur. Several days before you give your in-class presentation on the question/s specified next to your name, email me as complete a draft as you can. I will email you comments. After you have done your in-class presentation, email me a timely final version if necessary (i.e. if what you initially emailed needed editing/development), and I will post it to the E316-W STUDENTS' BLOG.

Evaluating Presentations. I will judge presentations on the following grounds: did the student 1) consult with me beforehand to discuss substantive ideas? 2) seem to have put genuine effort into preparing? 3) ensure (before or soon after the presentation) that I receive a final version to post to the students' blog? Students who do those three 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 follow up. I will use a color code on this page to indicate whether students have completed the requirements: (Presented/Posted to Blog); (Presented/No Blog Entry); (No Presentation).

Tips on Presenting. Speak at the front of the class. Please read the question, address the entire class, and remind us of page numbers when you quote from the text. Speak firmly so everyone can hear.

Rescheduling Presentations. If you need to miss your scheduled presentation, let me know well in advance if at all possible, and contact me about rescheduling.

SCHEDULE: 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 the two questions go together well.
