Oral Presentations Day for Book Reviews 2016

Guidelines for Student Participants

1.        Begin with the author, title, and date of publication.
2.       Speak clearly, and look directly at your audience (not just at the Prof.!)
3.       Showing the cover of the book is a nice way to capture the attention of the audience, and to quickly demonstrate the book’s length, size, and appearance.
4.      Summarize the thesis or main idea (s) of the book in 2-4 sentences.
5.       Mention at least one memorable aspect of the book, so that at the end of your presentation we all will remember something distinctive about your book.
6.      Limit the presentation to less than 5 minutes.  You should time yourself at least once in advance so you have some sense of how much can be said in five minutes.
7.       Give the book a thumbs-up or thumbs-down for inclusion in a future iteration of our class, and briefly explain why it should (or should not) be included for future students.
8.      Now it’s the turn of the Moderator/Chairperson to ask you questions/clarifications based on your presentations and assess you for a score of 100.
9.      Toppers in each of the five teams win prizes.
