My research paper was on subtle sexist language, I did a presentation in class and people loved it. I was the only person that got asked questions.
After the presentations on are papers the professor divided us in groups of two. So we could fuse are papers are give the final presentation. I got existed because out of all the presentations I’m going to get someone I actually like and she has a very similar paper but no. I get this guy that I don’t remember what his paper is on. So I asked him to explain it to me…. Nope he didn’t make sense so i got his paper and read it.
It was bad, it was bad that my brain had to reboot. He wrote it in MLA and not even APA would of saved it. The only think I remember reading and it was in the last 2 paragraphs was disabled bodies in a talking world. WE had to somehow fuse this papers together and make a presentation.
It was hard, brainstorming was hard because of his lack of ideas(no ideas). He said “its all up too you” ok, cool 2 days later plenty of research and I will make the topic about tolerance in a interpersonal communication. So tolerance is a big subject but I got lucky and found the correct research and tolerance between 2 people. Gave him all the research on the day before thanksgiving and he said I do the PowerPoint” and email it on Friday” great I’ll get it, edited, and Monday the day to present; will practice a little before class.
Long story short no PowerPoint, its Monday, this fool is too cool to panic and I’m to good panic.
1 hour left to class, game face on. I tell him to highlight everything his going to read(I tell him what his going to read), cut the evidence and tape it on the paper. read the evidence and be familiar with it so he could give examples. No PowerPoint, no problem instead of PowerPoint will act out scenes that show tolerance and discuss about it in detail and also say some fancy words from the textbook.
We are the first to present because we marked are territory by putting chairs in front of classroom. It went… ok, I fill it was my worst presentation in that class but ok. Not going to lie the presentation after made us look good.
So today we got are scores and we also evaluated are partners. We got a B-. I was shocked but we did engage the audience something that not many did.
In the end I should not care because I don’t have to take the final because my grade is so high.
