In my 16 week RDG 091 course, prior to the first group presentation, I spend one or two classes teaching students the oral and format expectations of an oral PowerPoint presentation. In Fall, 2013, I taught an 8 week version of the RDG 091 course and found that there was limited time to extensively teach these skills prior to their first oral presentation. I provided them the rubric ahead of time and covered the information as best I could with the time I had. However, I was very disappointed in the results. For their next presentation I approached it differently. After a group t-chart activity, students produced an appropriate student-generated presentation rubric. The scores on the presentations increased after this activity. I again used this method in my Spring, 2014 8 week RDG 091 and my 8 week hybrid RDG 091 and again saw increased results (see attachment). I plan to implement this method in all of my courses and monitor results.
