I always ask for a group to volunteer to go first as this eases the prepresentation tension in the room. After that, other groups tend to volunteer. If none do after that, pull group letters out of a hat (or other thing acting as a “hat”). This takes the pressure off the teacher, negates the notion of favortism,a nd creates a level playing field for all.
Presentations should take no longer than 7 total minutes:
- 5 minutes – Presentation of topic, definition, examples with explanations
- 2 minutes – Time for studens to take notes from poster, and ask questions
