Presentation Write-Up

The assignment: For each of your two presentations on sources from the assigned readings, write a 2–3 page essay that summarizes what the reading tells us.

Your write-up should do the following:

The main point of the presentation and the write-up is NOT to summarize the reading. Summary should be less than 25% of your presentation and your write-up. The main point is to analyze the reading and talk about what it means and what it tells us about that place and time in ancient history.

Your write-up needs to be posted to BlackBoard before the next class meeting after you present in class. In this final version of the write-up you can incorporate ideas and reactions that came up during the in-class discussion that followed the presentation.
