Form Presentation Teams!

I've written each Learning Community theme on the board. Write your name and your topic under the appropriate theme. You may list your name/topic under more than one category for now.

  • Form groups, based on the category you belong to. Look for people with the same or similar topics. Alternatively, how could you connect feminist topics with Abolitionist topics? The broad LC E themes are:
    • War
    • Citizenship
    • Equality, Liberty & Order
    • Revolution & Revolt
    • Power & Oppression
  • Our MAIN LC E theme is Courage, Conviction and Composition.


The plan is a guide to get you started and help you identify areas you need to research in order to align your research with the rest of your team.

  • Begin by electing someone to type all this information into the Group Presentation Plan. This person will also be in charge of saving the document, and getting copies to the rest of the team.
  • Make final decisions re. your presentation groups. Groups ideally should have about 3 to a team, no more than 5. Remember, it's ok if you work with folks who are not in your Writing Group for this project.
  • Meet with your group and discuss "common themes." Establish how you will connect all of your individual topics to a broader Learning Community E theme.
  • Begin, as a team to hammer out the questions asked of you on the Presentation Plan.
  • Determine your Presentation Group's goals and expectations for each group member. Remember, this presentation counts in ALL THREE LC courses! In addition to presenting in class, you'll also present at the First Year Symposium. This is a big deal!!!
  • What's our goal? Your group will present a formal, academic research presentation to the Learning Community at the end of the semester.
  • Once your group has completed the document, someone will need to print it (just one copy), and EACH group member must SIGN this document. Your group member who typed the document should make sure to EMAIL this document to all group members so that everyone has a copy for their portfolio.
  • Give Jen one printed, signed, stapled copy. You may do this now or bring it to class on Wednesday. This will count as a homework grade.


  • If you didn't already, finish your Group Presentation Plan and print this for Jen and bring it to class on Wed. Make sure everyone in the presentation group received a copy.
  • STUDY FOR THE EXAM AND WORK ON THE EXAM 2 REVIEW GUIDE. Come to this class prepared to demonstrate your knowledge of Exam 2 topics on Wednesday!
