Lee/Readings in Creative Nonfiction—“The Personal Essay:   Ways of Seeing”

Spring 2005

Presentation Assignment

Presentation Guidelines and Goals
Once during the semester, you and three of your classmates will be responsible for presenting biographical and critical material on one writer, as well as for initiating class discussion by presenting a reading of one or two of the writer’s essays. We will meet the week before your presentation to discuss your group’s approach. 


Each presenter should include a bibliography of sources, along with a brief outline or summary of the presentation.  Interview and critical material should be delivered extemporaneously. Your group will have 30 minutes, so please time yourselves and coordinate your individual presentations accordingly.

Criteria for Evaluation

Presentations will comprise 20% of your grade for the course.  Each presenter will receive both an individual and a group grade, to be averaged.
