The grand finale of your project will be the oral presentation. You will have up to 5 minutes to make a presentation to the class about the Newbery book you read. Without giving away the story, you should describe a bit about the characters, setting and plot and explain why you did (or did not) like the book.
Feel free to include any props and audio/visual aids you like in your presentation. Please do NOT read your presentation - prepare index cards with brief phrases reminding you of your main points. Practice your presentation at home to improve your delivery.
Each presentation will be graded according to volume, clarity, eye contact, pace, expression and body language. Click on the link for the oral presentation rubric.
