Targets for Today:

✣  I can read, research, and present. (How They Croaked Project)
            -- I can use reliable and useful sources for research.  
            -- I can select important ideas and facts from my research.
            -- I can read and then paraphrase to present. 
            -- I can successfully teach my classmates what I have learned. 
                       When I present,  my classmates will be able to hear me, 
                       and I will be able to tell, not just read, about my famous person. 

Today’s  Agenda:

Prepare to present your slideshow. 

Be prepared to present when you are called up.  

You will take notes (quiz questions and answers) on each presentation.   
You will lose points if you are not a respectful and attentive audience member.
