For your final presentation, you have the option to reuse your old research topic or create a new research topic. In either case, you should expand your presentation to 8-10 minutes. As in your midterm, your presentation will be graded for clarity, quality and effectiveness. However, unlike your midterm, this is only 40% of your grade.
You should also write an essay explaining your hook, your punch, and your points. Please explain why you chose your hook/punch/points, how you found them and why you feel they are important. This should be about 300 words long and is 40% of your grade.
Finally, you will be expected to participate in your classmates’ presentations. This includes asking intelligent questions, offering constructive criticism and making suggestions. It’s 20% of your grade.
