Today you and your group will present your 1 minute/1-slide presentations to your peers. While you are presenting, the audience will be watching and providing constructive feedback to help you identify your strengths and weaknesses with public speaking and in presenting historical information while using supporting evidence in a speech. This is a chance to practice the skills needed in "constructing arguments" and also in your ability to capture and hold an audience attention through voice projection, tone, speech cadence, eye contact, visuals, etc.

Helpful Resources for Today's Class:
Today, you will work collaboratively and individually to reflect on the strength and weakness of some of the arguments (and rebuttals) presented last class during the formative debates. Please discuss, watch videos and then individually reflect on compelling arguments heard and what evidence (and analysis) was presented that may have led you to reconsider your view on the significance of the causes of WWI.
