As part of Performance Assessment this term, students give a 5-minute-power point presentation in class in Week 16 (Exam week). Presentations are an integral part of NLL courses, so this is a chance for students to improve their speaking skills. To accomplish this task, students need to follow the steps below:
- Students first choose a topic from the NLL Elementary (U1-U12) or NLL Pre-intermediate (U1-U4) books about which they would like to give a presentation. Everybody in the class must choose a different topic to present!
- They inform the instructor about the topic they choose till 1st of December.
- They make sure that their names, unit and topic are included in the “Presentation Schedule” (See Presentation Schedule) on the noticeboard.
- They need to start preparing their presentation AT LEAST TWO WEEKS BEFORE the date of the presentation.
- They need to e-mail their presentation to the instructor AT LEAST A WEEK BEFORE the date of the presentation.
- Their presentation must last for 5 minutes. If it lasts more than 5 minutes, the instructor has to stop them before the presentation is over. Therefore, it is very important for students to stick to the time.
- When their presentation is over, they must be ready to answer questions posed by their classmates and the instructor for 2 minutes.
- Their presentation must be in level-appropriate language and it must also be in their own words. That means the grammar and vocabulary should be familiar to the class.
- If they copy and paste the presentation from an online source, and if the instructor notices this, their presentation will NOT be graded.
- They must prepare a power-point presentation with images and texts, and videos that last no more than 1 minute.
- When it is somebody else’s turn to give a presentation, it is important that the other students are NOT absent from class, because they have to complete a “Presentation Reflection Paper” (See Presentation Reflection Paper) after all the presentations have finished and hand it in to the instructor at the end of the presentation day who will grade it by using the Presentation Reflection Paper Grading Criteria. (See Presentation Reflection Paper Grading Criteria)
- If they read everything from their notes or from the PPT they prepared, 50 points will be deducted from their total presentation score.
Presentation covers 10% of the 1st period final grade. A presentation is evaluated based on submission (10pts), its quality which covers Grammar, Vocabulary, Use of Visuals and Overall Effectiveness (8pts) and writing a reflection (10pts) (See Presentation Grading Criteria). Instructors need to use the presentation comment sheet while watching the presentations (See Presentation Comment Sheet)
