Paper 2 Presentations

Length: About 5-10 minutes for the presentation. (No additional written work must be turned in for a grade, but a one-page fact sheet for the class highlighting your findings is required.)

As part of your Paper 2 assignment, you'll be presenting your original research to the class during one of three presentation days at the end of the semester. You may also choose to present your research on a topic unrelated to Paper 2, but most people will probably want to combine the presentation with their Paper 2 research.

Your purpose is to inform the class about some facet of 1920s literature, music, or culture. If you've done the "texts in context" paper, for example, you may want to discuss what you've discovered about the 1920s periodical or author you focused on for the paper. If you've completed a web project, you may want to show that project on the screen and discuss it with the class. If you've worked with someone else on the project, you can present your research together.

Although this presentation will be based on your final project, you shouldn't simply read your paper to the class, although you can present portions of your paper in your presentation. Instead, you should feel free to bring in film or music clips, use PowerPoint or pictures, ask students questions, and otherwise make your presentation lively and informative for the class. You can also present your research in innovative ways (1920s Bingo or Jeopardy? A 1920s crossword puzzle? A video?) if that suits your purposes.

The presentation will count 5% toward your Paper 2 grade: that is, you'll receive a grade for Paper 2 (25%) and a grade for the presentation (5%) to make up the 30% of your grade that Paper 2 represents.
