Composition for the modern world in English 1109.01
good presantation but i feel you may have rushed a little bit since you seemed to miss some information that could have helped set up everything and allow me to understand her influence. but the information from your studys was interesting and allowed me to wonder what more there is about Maya
I thought you did great for doing this solo! All the pressure was on you and you had tp remeber all the information and present it on your own! Great job. The only thing I would have worked on is presenting who she was right from the getgo because I didn't know her at all. You stated really great points!
Good job supporting your thesis and giving good facts about her. Those were all knew to me. Some constructive criticism would be to try to stay on track a little better, it seemed as if you lose your train of thought a few times and said "um" and "yeah" a lot. The conclusion seemed the least polished in my opinion.
The presentation was okay. Just a little dull on the powerpoint. Being mute would be incredibly hard. I can't keep my mouth shut for an hour let alone five years.
For doing this by yourself you did great! i could not have talked for that long by my self. I didn't know who she was so it would of been nice to know more about who she is first then do details on her. but overall great job!
I agree that you did a good job for having to do this presentation by yourself! What I learned from your presentation was the huge influence she had on cultural diversity and breaking barriers. It was also insane to learn that she was a "mute" for five years. I cannot imagine going through that. The amount of pain and suffering she had endured to decide to start her "mute" period had to be deep, to say the least.The bit of constructive criticism I have would just be to try and slow down a bit. I went through the same think where I lost my train of thought briefly. Obviously this is easier said than done!
Even if there is something bad in your presentation I would take it back because you did your presentation all alone. Your voice and how you went throughout the presentation was really good. Also I learned a lot about her, 50 Honorary Degrees-WOAH!!!Going through a lot of depression in her life she came back up using taking the advantage of being mute instead of crying and again going back into depression. Your thesis statement was good too , the voice and everything went on perfectly.As far as the constructive criticism I would say that you stammered and waited for a little time in the middle, and you didn't went on clearly in your conclusion.
I think you made a very detailed handout. I learned who she was. I liked how you wrote the books she wrote on the handouts. I think you could have dug a lot more into your topic. It would been more clear if you made short bullet points on your slides. I think your slides need improvement not text heavy.
I thought you did a great job on your presentation, I didn't really know much about her and you did a great job explaining about her and also a great handout. One improvement that I think you should make is that don't put too much words on the slides next time but other than that great presentation.
