Workshop 10: Video Proposal Day Two

Summary: Six students successfully presented their proposals. I did not provide student samples other than the instructions because this is a writing class, but on reflection, I will provide presentations examples in the future. If you would like to volunteer to put your presentation on this website, please let me know. We had an excellent presentation day and you have the video recording in your inboxes.

How to properly present PowerPoint slides in Zoom:

Summary: Guidelines for your Presentation are not included in the document.

1. Your talk should be about 8-10 minutes and then 3-5 minutes for questions, comments, and answers.

2. It is good to practice your presentation several times on ZOOM so you can focus on your content while speaking to the camera. 

Summary: We worked on specific academic writing issues related to your synthesized notes to help you write your first draft. The students that took AEW1 or AEW2a that wrote APA formatted essays and are familiar with the writing process spoke with their pairs in a discussion format and shared their research. Students completely new to academic writing in English got more instructions and support.
