Sign-up for a day to present below. You may present on anything relevant
to the text or the class; intellectual creativity is encouraged. No
subject, handled well, is off limits, including, for instance, comparisons
to current events or films. However, you are expected to focus your
presentation very specifically. For instance, in 5 to 10 minute, you
might analyze one brief passage in the novel or explain the relevance of
an important historical detail.
Check out the sort of reports that went on in Introduction to the Novel for ideas.
