Tips:

* Don't read your presentation. Read information is boring!

* Do relevant research and tell us how we can find out more! Make sure your research is recent. Consult magazines, journals videos, and newspapers that are published in the last year, if possible.

* Try to get the class involved in your presentation.

* Demonstrate, show or illustrate your presentation.

* Present new information. The goal of your presentation should be to teach us something we don't already know.

* Start your presentation with a brief summary of what we will learn.

Evaluation/Marking : Marking will be made up of a combination of peer and instructor evaluation.

All members of the group will be given the same mark. The presentation will make up 25% of your final grade.

**PLEASE NOTE

Students will pick their own groups. Choose your partners wisely.

If for any reason you must reschedule your presentation, it is your responsibility to contact the instructor prior to the presentations with a reasonable explanation. (Otherwise no make-up times will be allowed)
