Presentation 1: Art Movement
Description of Presentation:
Each student will be part of a team of classmates to present a significant art movement as part of their semester grade. The art movement will be assigned, and students will be responsible for delegating responsibilities that contribute to the final presentation in class. Each person on the team needs to contribute to this project, and will be evaluated by their peers at the end of the semester based on their contributions. The presentation should show that the student has mastered the information. Presentations should not be read directly from the PowerPoint, but should instead be given in a way that respects the audience and keeps them engaged. Students should practice giving the presentation ahead of time.
