“Any complex activity, if it is to be carried on with any degree of virtuosity, calls for appropriate gifts of intellect and temperament. If they are outstanding and reveal themselves in exceptional achievements, their possessor is called a ‘genius.’”--Carl von Clausewitz, On War.
ALERT is an opportunity to exercise your talents to the very edge of your present abilities in order to grow and change.
Presenting information to an audience to educate, entertain, or persuade can make use of a wide variety of digital tools, but the general expectations remain the same. The elements we invite you to consider and reflect on each day--collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence--form the framework of the feedback and assessment for presentations.
Students are invited to assess themselves. Think about where your presentation skills are located on the chart today, and chart a course to navigate to where you want to be. In order to make your decisions easier, there are no letter grades or number ratings on the presentation checklists, only descriptions of actions or internal feelings.
