Oral Presentation

The oral presentation taught me that to really compare two of the works we've studied I really needed more examples. More than just the three or four I had, ten might have been better.
When I was listening to other people's presentations, I noticed that their use of examples kept me engaged, and thinking my own thought. Letting the plays comparative points speak for themselves makes an infinitely more powerful statement.
I wish I would have practiced the whole presentation word-for-word before giving it. I knew what I wanted to say, and had major points picked out, but I never really thought about how to transition from one point to the next.
I liked hearing all of my peers arguements, and witnessing the variety of perspectives our small class has to offer.
