MEMORANDUM

TO: Student’s Name

FROM: Your name

DATE: Current date

SUBJECT: Critique of your presentation, “Name of Presentation”

Introduction: Explain what your overall impression of the presentation is and what you thought its primary message was. Explain briefly the kinds of strengths and weaknesses you found in the presentation.

Strengths of the presentation: Analyze why you thought two or three aspects of the presentation were particularly insightful, educational, or well-reasoned.

Areas that could be improved: Explain specifically what was confusing about the presentation. If there were grammar errors, give examples. Explain also what could be added or changed about the presentation to make it better.

Visual Appeal/Interest: How well did the student’s presentation use visuals to add to the overall strength an impact of the presentation’s message? What changes would you make? For example, did the student use a “pink” border on a presentation about Daisy Bates? Was that a good choice for this formidable woman?

Summary: Two or three concluding thoughts about the presentation. You might want to comment here about what you hope the student will include in his or her final paper.

This assignment is due by the last day of the academic week, Week 7, by 11:30PM ET.
