Presentation Schedules

Weekly Topics (back to top)

Presenters will examine subjects in greater detail than the rest of the class and then prepare a short presentation and handout. A few presentations are historical and/or biographical in nature. Most expand upon one of the reading selections that the entire class will have read. These presentations will help the class focus on key strategies for understanding these texts.

Presenters are encouraged to discuss their presentations with me in advance of their presentation. (Of course, those volunteering to present in weeks two and three will benefit from my reciprocal kindness.)
