Teaching Notes and Tips
Discussing with students their chosen article is important as it allows you to clear up misconceptions before they present to their classmates. For the conference, have a moderator (the TA or another student) who tracks the time and gives signals at the 2 minute and 1 minute mark. This keeps the presentations on schedule.
