Complete student survey:
See board for login and ID#. Dr. F will read directions first.
Work on plan for activity and discussion–turn in outline for plan with times noted. Be sure you do a practice run to verify the planned timings. Total time available = 25 minutes. List the date and order when you are scheduled. The default room set up will be a large table with a circle of chairs–make a note if you need something else. Be sure to include your name.
There will be a google folder in which you upload your annotated bibliography (filename = yourname sci8 1617 an.bib) and your presentation (filename = yourname sci8 1617 himp.pres) < https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B4DPwlouN3dIdVZnX2dCa3VtTGc?usp=sharing >
