This is not a formal public speaking assignment, but a way for the class to learn from each other and discover the power
of research. To that end:
1. No need to stand in front of the room; we'll be having a conversation with you about your paper and we will all be
2. You will not read a paper. Instead you will speak from your knowledge and your notes about something you now know alot
about. If you start to read, we will interrupt you (politely) and steer you back to a conversational approach.
3. Specifically, you will answer these questions.
a. why you selected this topic;
b. what 3 things are essential for us to learn;
c. what surprised you in your research;
d. what do you still need to discover about the topic.
