Teacher’s Notes Part 3 includes activities that aim at enabling students to organise their findings and analyses for a presentation. Teachers may use their discretion as to which activities to implement according to their students’ abilities. As stated in the Suggested Scheme of Work, it is very important that teachers provide a context for the presentations to take place. For example, teachers can organise a Social Awareness Week or a field trip to the High Court, which should give students a context for doing the presentations. Learning Activity 1 10 minutes (pair work) Students reflect on their own experience of doing presentations and discuss in pairs what makes an effective presentation. Learning Activity 2 20 minutes (pair work) (a) The two questions here only act as lead-in. Teachers should accept any reasonable answers and encourage students to justify. Suggested answer for (1): Consumerism refers to the social phenomenon that people equate happiness with purchasing material things. (b) Students watch the presentations on consumerism (CD Tracks 3-4) and decide which one is better. They should also be asked to come up with some reasons to support their judgement. Suggested answers : Presentation _B _ is better. Presentation _A _ is not very good. Reasons: 1. Well organised 2. Introduction is interesting and attracts attention 3. Effective use of signposts 4. Frequent eye contact 5. Relaxed and confident 6. Body language used to make emphasis 7. Only keywords put on PowerPoint slides 8. Good design of PowerPoint slides makes presentation clear Reasons: 1. Introduction is not clear 2. Little eye contact 3. Excessive reading from the PowerPoint slides 4. Confusing use of signposts 5. Distracting body language e.g.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
