Guidelines on Site Presentations

  1. Your Multimodal Essay will be due on April 19th at the beginning of class and your Storyteller group project will be due on the 26th at the beginning of class, whether or not you are scheduled to present that day.
  2. Arrive on time.  We will begin presentations promptly at 9:40am and you will be expected to be ready to present at your scheduled slot. Even if you are not scheduled to present that day, arriving late will be distracting to those who are presenting.
  3. Plan to present for about 8-10 minutes.  2-5 minutes should be reserved for setup, take-down, and responding to peer questions/feedback, for a total of 15(ish) minutes.  Because of the size of our class especially, there is no need to rush.  We will make the time to give each piece the attention it deserves.
  4. Plan accordingly with your equipment needs.  Our classroom has a projector and a computer with an internet connection, which should be suitable enough for our needs.  If you will be using your own computer or hookups to present additional visual aids, it is your responsibility to make sure you have the compatible cords to do so.   
  5. Be attentive in your role as an audience.  You will have the link to your classmate’s site while they present, and will therefore be able to “click” through and have your own experience of their site in tandem with their walkthrough if you desire.  Remember that your peers who are presenting will also at one point be your audience as well.  Be respectful and engaged when others are presenting, and don’t be afraid to give feedback and ask questions!
  6. Each group member in the Storyteller Project should have a crucial role in presentation.  As each member of your groups have worked hard to create your digital story, each should have a role in presenting a part of your story.  
  7. Relax and have fun with this.  These presentations do fulfill a crucial requirement for the course, but more importantly they are a celebration of your achievements in this class and all you have learned.  Additionally, we are a class that is very supportive of each other. You have worked so hard on these multimodal pieces.  Be proud!
