As a reminder, technical difficulties are not an excuse for not being able to make your final presentations. There will be NO opportunities to make up a missed presentation, so be prepared!
American Literature: Monday, 9:00 – 11:30, the final presentations are due! The following description is in your syllabus: Multi-Media Project 2 Assignment: Select one of the following poets and create a PowerPoint presentation with a minimum of 20 slides (not including the title slide, the “ending” slide, or the sources slide) or a 7-10 minute video to introduce the poet and include selections of his/her work. Create a focus for the poems presented based on an era, movement, or theme (as discussed during the semester), design a research strategy, collect visuals and information to support the focus, and present the project to the class in the role of a teacher.
Shakespeare’s Tragedies: Monday, 12:30 – 3:00, the final presentations are due! The complete description is on the handout available on the Shakespeare’s Tragedies page. I am looking forward to seeing how you have reinterpreted Shakespeare’s words to show us that Shakespeare is still relevant today. Don’t forget that your presentation is REQUIRED to have a theme and 20 quotations matched to 20 visuals that explicate your theme.
Poetry & Nonfiction: Tuesday, 12:30 – 3:00, your final presentation on the nonfiction book of your choice is due! The handout for this assignment is available on the Poetry and Nonfiction page.
World Literature: Wednesday, 9:00 – 11:30, the final presentations are due! The following description of this assignment is in your syllabus: Multimedia Project 3 Assignment: Select one of the following poets or selections and create a PowerPoint presentation with a minimum of 20 slides (not including the title slide, the “ending” slide, or the sources slide) or 9-12 minutes of video or other presentation tool to introduce the poet (if there is one listed) and the selections of his/her/the work. Create a focus for the selection(s) presented based on a literary technique, movement, or theme (as discussed during the semester); design a research strategy; collect information and visuals to support the focus; and present the project to the class in the role of a teacher.
Publications & Media: Wednesday, 12:30 – 3:00. This is it! We will create the master DVD for each of the yearbooks [2010-2011 and 2011-2012] and then burn the DVDs to pack into the cases to distribute at the picnic Thursday night! Needless to say, you may need to give us some extra time this week in order to make this happen….
The Word: Thursday, 12:30 – 3:00. We will be watching more of The Matrix trilogy today as we wrap up our investigation of how much the New Testament permeates popular culture!
I hope everyone will be able to join us at the end-of-the-year picnic Thursday night, the National Honor Society Induction and the Awards Ceremony on Friday morning, and, of course, Graduation on Saturday afternoon at 2:00! Additionally, you should be completing your course selection sheets for next year [due to me by June 15th]!
Have a great week!
