Grading For Symposium Ground Rules

  • Everyone should come to class on November 28th prepared to present their research and learning in their group presentations.
  • Tri-fold Poster boards need to be professional in appearance and complete.
  • This presentation event is a "dress rehearsal" for the main event on the 30th. This means you should dress sharp with business casual attire.
  • Also, everyone should come to every class on this day because you will be needed as an audience and a peer reviewer for the other presentations.
  • Missing Seminar, Composition, and/or 0399 will result in substantial deduction to your grade.
  • Everyone will be asked to provide feedback to each presenter.
  • Burnett's Brainstorming for Symposium
  • Rubric for the Symposium Presentation
