    *Presentations are being scheduled as I write this message. 
    *We will use Zoom. You will receive a link. I have two scheduled for tomorrow so if there are tech issues I can work them out.
    *If you have made last-minute revisions, I will need you to send me your final version before your present. 
    *Presentations will really kick in Tues-Wed-Thur-Fri. 
    *I will have you on one laptop and your presentation on my other one. 
    *Use a laptop or computer, rather than a phone, if at all possible. 
    *Check your email regularly. 
    *And text me directly at my number if you have questions. It's just more efficient than Remind at this point. 
    3/26/20 at 5:20pm - READ ALL THESE WORDS. ALL OF THEM

    Here is the procedure for completing the presentations:

    1. Submit your presentation to me at coachbradberry1@gmail.com – so far 7 of you have not as of 5:00 on 3/26. It was due to me on 3/23 by midnight.
    2. I will give you some brief feedback, and if I suggest changes, you have 24 hours to make them and submit a revision. My goal is to give everyone some initial feedback by Sunday March 29.
    3. Then I will give you an initial score in Infinite Campus.
    4. Once I tell you directly, you may begin completing your sections of the PPD in ManageBac. So far that is only 3-4 of you.
    5. Beginning on Monday March 30, you will be scheduled to give your presentation to me via FaceTime, Zoom, or Skype. The order will be in the order in which I received the presentation. I will send that out separately, but if I’ve given you a preliminary score already then you will be among the first to go.

    3/24/20 - I will be giving you a preliminary score of 0-10 based on the presentation you have sent, with some brief comments. Again, the scoring rubric is here, and my score will be based on that with the understanding that you haven't actually given your presentation - yet. Working on that - stay tuned. 
    3/23/20 - Presentations are due tonight by 11:59pm. Of the four I've received, only one is even close to being acceptable. You have numerous resources below. I have sent you a screenshot of your ultimate goal. You have the scoring rubric. Accomplish what I know you're able to accomplish!
    3/16/20 -
    *Presentations will be due to me on Monday March 23rd as originally planned.
    **NEW EMAIL! - Your presentation should be emailed to me at coachbradberry1@gmail.com
    I created this email specifically for these circumstances. DO NOT USE any other email to submit your presentations.
