Poetry Presentations--even more suggestions

Thanks for the good job folks did with very little time to prepare. I have some comments and one functional change.
1. Practice!
2. You might save time for us if you include the theme on the handout. If you want to get us actively involved, leave out "major concepts" when listing it say we can "fill in the blanks." That will keep us listeners involved.
3. Be really careful of stereotypes--sometimes they offend people when that probably isn't your intent.
4. CHANGE--Beginning next week--I will set the timer for fifteen minutes as I am timing your presentation. It will go off--you will have one minute to close your presentation. What you don't get to, you don't get to.
5. Practice!
