I am asking you to post responses each week since we cannot be in a classroom to discuss
them.
For this presentation, please add your comments in the Discussion board
A. Name three things that you learned in the presentation.
B. Name at least one thing you liked in the presentation.
C. Ask at least one question about the content of the presentation.
Posting your responses counts towards your class participation and weekly attendance.
Please note that this presentation First Class.mp3 is very long, 103 minutes, so you might be
more comfortable splitting it into two halves. You are supposed to read whatever is on the
video and should not be distracted by your phone, texting, or watching television. (The end
credits are largely inaccurate since I have added and dropped many titles without noting them.)
