In this lesson, students will practice their reading and oral presentation skills for the final exam, as well as learn about tractor features.
The BTS end of program exam is a presentation of 2 or 3 documents (texts or pictures). They have 30 minutes to prepare a 5 minute presentation that is followed by questions for about 10 minutes.
That way they should be able to cover the whole text and present it in a clear and structured way.
I ask them to speak for at least a minute and a half. They can read their notes if they want to but I always stress that it is a good idea to give a glance at the audience from time to time. So it is important that they structure their notes in a way that they don't get lost when they get back to them after looking at the audience.
Therefore they should :
- write their notes every other line,
- underline key words, and
- divide into paragraphs (at least 1 for each part).
