One of the ways we finish the year strong in some of our classes is having students design their own unit plan (on a topic of their choice) and teach a portion of it to classmates. I’ve included the complete lesson plan and hand-outs in my newest book, and have also previously posted about it.
This year, we’re adding a new element — having students create a simple introductory PowerPoint presentation to their topic. I’ve found a few short and simple videos we’ll be showing students to help provide some advice. I’ll embed them here, and add them to The Best Sources Of Advice For Making Good Presentations.
