DISCUSSION PROMPTS: EFFECTIVE PRESENTATION, RENAISSANCE, RE-BIRTH, EUROPE, REPRESENTATIVE, OUR PLACE IN HISTORY, CURRENT EVENTS
UP NEXT: the European Renaissance x TODAY
This week we were very focused on preparing for our spread of the Renaissance presentations, some of which happened today. We focused a lot on good research practices last week, and this week focused on good presentation practices. Specifically, the focus was on ensuring the presenters are the presentation. We did that by co-creating some criteria on what to do, and what not to do. We also made sure to develop our visuals as an enhancement to what we are saying by minimizing text, maximizing useful and appropriate visuals, and using the enhancements like animation to our advantage.

We also started our current events afternoons this week. Students have signed up for one day over the next month to lead a 10-minute discussion on a current event of their choosing. We are mapping these current events on our own specific Google maps. Check them out!
