Every student will present one reading to the class. Presenters should summarize the reading's main points, assess its strengths and weaknesses, and provide some initial ideas to guide the discussion.
All students will be prepared to participate in class discussions of the readings, so the presenter's duty is to begin that discussion. Every presenter must provide me their powerpoint on the day of the presentation.
The line ABOVE the reading indicates the person who is presenting that reading: please do not get confused and prepare the wrong reading for class.
Email me if you have any questions.
