There are two components:
Día de los Muertos Display:
Class presentation at the end of the semester:
You must start soon. As you get your display/PowerPoint Presentation ready, make sure that you are thinking of the end of semester class presentation. The early you start, the better the presentation is going to be. As always, I am here to help you with the written and spoken language. Your grade will be a combination of the quality of information, poster/presentation creativity, written and pronunciation.
What makes a good presentation?
-practice your pronunciation (if you don’t know, ask in advance so you can practice)
-Timing (practice out loud at home to make sure your presentation within the time limit)
-Use lots of props and visuals that you can talk about
-minimal writing (know what you want to say about each slide in your head or note card)
-talk about the slides, do not just read them, everyone can read
-put mostly visuals on your slides with only a few key points to remind yourself of what it is about.
-Remember: you have to sit through all of the presentations too so make them as fun and interesting as possible!
