Paper 2 Presentations
Length: About 5 minutes for the presentation. (No additional written work must be turned in.)
As part of your Paper 2 assignment, you'll be presenting your original research to the class during one of the 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.
Since this is a brief, creative presentation, you should feel free to should feel free to bring in film or music clips, make a film or film trailer of your own, use PowerPoint or pictures, ask students questions, and otherwise make your presentation lively and informative for the class.
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.
Your own topic. You’re welcome to choose your own topic, but you need to check it with me first.
