use remaining time to read book, publish posts, comment on classmates’ posts
Continue to find an image to accompany these posts–an image that literally or figuratively captures a main idea in the post.
Now that we have seen several presentations, I want to remind you to create slides that contain images and very little if any text–so that you talk to us, rather than read to us. It is easy to slip into the slide-text-reading mode, so challenge yourself to keep text to a bare minimum, if you feel you need any at all.

Given the calendar between now and May 5, presenters are limited to 15–count ’em–15 minutes each.
As a foundation for your presentation, use a three-slide format to address the following questions. The spirit of this presentation is to communicate with your classmates about something that means something to you. This is one more chance to help them know who you are and what catches your heart and mind.
- Where does your interest come from?
- What main question(s) drove your reading?
- What insights are emerging from your reading?
As I watch and listen, I will use these questions?
Is the presenter
- communicating clearly by anticipating the audience’s needs?
- talking to us, rather than reading to us?
- focusing the presentation on the guide questions listed above?
learning goal: how can I make each blog post distinctly mine and significantly different (from previous posts)
review current calendar
solve mechanical issues with first post (see email from Mr. Brown)
