HEY TEACH,
I WAS JUST WONDERING, IF I HAD TO DO A COMPLETE PRESENTATION ON MY READING?, I MEAN, I GET THE GIST OF IT, BUT MY QUESTION WAS IF I NEED TO BRING TO CLASS A POWER POINT PRESENTATION AND A HANDOUT FOR EACH PERSON WITH THE SUMMARY OF WHAT MY PRESENTATION IS GOING TO BE BASED ON, OR, IF IN FACT, I JUST NEED TO TALK ABOUT WHAT I UNDERSTOOD AND WHAT MY IMPRESSION OF THE READING WAS, AND LEAVE IT AT THAT….
THANKS

Carolina, there is no need for you to print handouts for everyone in the class. The idea is that you present the text to your classmates, this means you make a synopsis or you point out what you thought were the main points in the text. Afterwards (ideally) you would share thoughts on it, if it was clear, if it read well, if the points the author made were grounded, etc. You can use any resources you want like power point presentations, film clips, etc.
