Group Presentations Student duos should select one topic on political or social philosophy that they find of interest, and then present that topic to the class Groups need to approve their topic with me (in person or via email) Typically, presentations should provide a good overview of the topic, consider both sides of the argument, and then state which side they agree with and why. A hardcopy of the presentation be the equivalent of approximately 2 double-spaced pages Students have until next Thursday to sign up and give a provisional topic On the D2L discussion board, you should state what day you would like to present (I will post the class days) I will post the updated schedule on the D2L mainpage
