Group Presentations

Working in groups of three, students will present their individualized projects in a 10-15 minute presentation to the entire class. The projects should be presented collectively rather than serially, and the presentation should be a group effort rather than a series of individual presentations. The ideal presentation will illustrate connections and contrasts among the projects and find ways to engage the class in the discussion. Individuals should not present their own projects one by one; that is, individuals should NOT present their own project, even in summary form, by themselves. You can summarize each others' projects, but not your own. The presentation will be graded on oral technique, originality, and content. All of these presentations will take place during the final exam period. Students will receive a group grade for the presentation but the instructor reserves the right to give individual grades in addition to group grades if there is some indication that there were problems with the group dynamic.  The grade on this oral presentation will be 5% of the final score.
