What the TAs and I have noticed need to be improved from observing the presentations and reading reflections:

-Mental Dialog must be obvious in the persuasive presentation!  Mental dialog is what distinguishes a persuasive presentation from other forms of public speaking.

-For your reflection paper and folders (Persuasive and Choice presentations), be sure to include all the required components.  See Syllabus link.

-Be sure to PROOF READ (out loud) your  reflection papers.

Formal Class Introductions (graded, 5%).  Don't End with "That's about it", no hats, no gum, hands out of pockets.
