Presentation Week Instructions

Here it comes! The first (well, for some of you) big presentation.

Here is the schedule:

Tuesday, April 29:

Colin Nimer, Southern Utah University
Ryan Sucy, University of Maine Farmington
Dara Fillmore, University of Wisconsin-Superior

Thursday, May 1:
Christopher Hightower, Montevallo University
James Horn, Shepherd University
Christos Stravoravdis, Eastern Connecticut State University
Alisia True, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts
Jennifer Marks, Truman State University
UMW Team, University of Mary Washington
and the Century America home website

You will have 9-10 minutes to do the following:

1)      Introduce yourself and your school
2)      Introduce your site (an overview of key sections, with attention to 1-2 parts/sections/features that you are particularly proud of)
3)      Brief discussion of 1-3 particular challenges or great discoveries related to the research for your campus/town.  [Let’s leave the technology discussions for the COPLAC/CUR presentations.]
4)      Overarching summary narrative of your school and your town’s experiences during the 1914-1919 era.

Remember that Dr. McClurken or Dr. Pearson will need to share the content and navigate your site for you. Therefore, please send us the order in which you would like to navigate your site 24 hours in advance of your presentation. 

We will be testing the audio/video for the Voices sections, during today’s class. If the test works, then you will be able to share audio clips in your presentation if you wish.

We will go over these instructions in class today, and of course if you have questions please bring them up.
