This week is much more relaxed for me because I only have to check what my kids have done, I don’t have to teach anything new. Today begins presentations in my marketing and multimedia classes. The seniors will present their business plans, using PowerPoint, to a small panel, including me. One of my outstanding students has come home and will sit in and give his opinions of their work. This young man has just lost his job as a head buyer at Mervyn’s so he brings with him a whole repertoire of information about running a business.
This afternoon the multimedia students begin presenting their websites. These are very small, only 4 pages, and are about themselves. It will be a chance for the others in the class to see what everyone else is doing. They have been so intent on their own website that they are oblivious to what others are doing. A few have done some good work that I want to show off.
