History of Ancient Rome

Presentation Sign-up #2

  • Everyone must sign up for one presentation in the first half of the semester and one in the second half.
    • Presentations will be given in the class meeting’s that we discuss that reading.
    • You also need to submit a Word or PDF version as an essay assignment on BlackBoard.
    • Your written presentation must meet the write-up requirements in the syllabus in terms of length (the length of a 2-3 page essay = ~500-750 words) and expected content (reactive and analytical).
  • Pick one, then click the button to claim it. If there’s a name in bold in front of the reading name, that one’s already been picked by another student. As always I’m grateful to those who sign up for the earlier ones!
  • If you want to change the presentation you’ve chosen to a different one, please email me.
