On Tuesday, we heard some great team presentations of evidence about the Panhandle area. Links to videos and slides below.
- Teams are finding great stuff — very interesting and often very thorough observations.
- Generally good work explaining your goals and methods.
- Great use of a variety of kinds of evidence (numbers, photos…)
- Very nice job generally with transitions, Carl Kwan style!
- Slides were generally very good — we’ll talk more in the future about slide design best practices and pitfalls.
Weaknesses (biggest weak points had to do with delivery, not with content):
- As I mentioned, conclusions were generally weak. Refer to this Canvas page for important advice about conclusions.
- Confidence: you discovered something interesting — now stand up there and own it!

Class slides from 9/19 (look here for homework for 9/26).
You have three main tasks to complete for Thursday: read, write, prepare.
Warning: these will take longer than just a few minutes, so plan ahead & don’t do everything at the last minute.
Read a selection on “Using Field Research” from Envision: Writing and Researching Arguments (Alfano and O’Brien, 2014).
Post to your blog a Write-Out for your 2-minute talk (see below).
Prepare: 2-minute topic proposal for S2, using the two points below as a guide:
- “I’d like to find out more about…”
describe area or topic of interest
- “My plan for gathering information is…”
describe research methods
Use 1 or 2 slides, as appropriate.
