1.      Powerpoint Presentation or Poster (50%)

a.      Must connect at least 3 concepts you learned from this semester to your topic.

b.      Must be colorful and include color pictures. (Note: printers at school are black and white only so if you have a poster they would need to be hand drawn)

2.      Oral Presentation (50%)

a.      Each presentation will be between six and eight minutes. (points will be docked for going over time, or under time)
