Today students will present their 1 minute/1-slide presentations to their peers. While they are presenting, the audience will be watching and providing constructive feedback to help students identify their strengths and weaknesses with presenting historical information while using supporting evidence in their speech. This is a chance to practice the skills needed in "constructing arguments" and also public speaking skills.
Afterwards, students will complete a formative reflection on their strengths and weaknesses in constructing arguments. There is a document that has been dropped in WH Drop folders to use for this. Students will need to look at their rubrics and any feedback received from their formative WWI debate, their formative WWI essay and from today's formative presentation. Not only will you be asked to identify the strengths and any weakness(es) in your skills in an constructing argument, but use specific evidence from your formative work. Additionally, you will need to set 1 goal to focus on skill development and improvement for the upcoming summative debate.
