The presentations cover the course of the semester and will occur as single or double presentations throughout the semester.

The Presentation has two components: a powerpoint presentation to be given to the class and a narrative providing a commentary of the powerpoint. The powerpoint should be 8-10 slides and the narrative 700-750 words. Both the presentation and the narrative are due in draft form to the instructor for feedback.
The powerpoint should include the following sources, listed in order of priority:
- Visual and audio primary sources
- Printed or electronic primary sources
- Printed, electronic secondary sources
- Visual and audio primary sources.
There should be at least 8 sources used. To receive consideration for a grade of A, a presentation must have at least 75% of sources from priority 1 and priority 2 categories.
The narrative will be evaluated as a researched essay. It will be judged primarily on organization, writing style, and appropriate documentation.
