All student presentations will be shared with Mr. McMurray before class time on Monday October 5. Students will then be selected at random to give their presentation during class Monday or Tuesday October 5-6. This presentation will count 20% of the quarter grade and go under the Project category. An initial bibliography will also be due in Noodletools Thursday, September 17, for a large homework grade.
You should also expect Mr. McMurray to film your presentation, and then share the footage with you so that you may see how it went for yourself, and learn for next time.
