Module Presentations

Each of you will be required to present 5 modules during the course weekend. First, you will be required to present the parking lot modules that are graded on the road test (15,16,17), one classroom presentation by yourself and one with a team of others.

Students often ask me to guide them where to look for the module they are supposed to teach. The name of the module doesnít have a consistent name with the student manual and the instructorís manual. See the chart below to help find the starting point for the modules:

That presentation will last about 5-6 minutes depending on how many total modules we need to have presented.

Obviously some of the modules cannot be presented well in 5 minutes. But that is not what we are looking at. (If you donít already know all of content in the modules, you are in trouble LCI-wise) We are observing your presentation to see how well you present the content.

The full sheet with all of the areas we use to critique presentations will be given to you on the Friday night sessions.

Presentation Resources

You are going to present as if you are an instructor teaching a TS-101 course. You are welcome to bring a PowerPoint and use my projector and we will likely have a flip chart for you to use. If you want to bring something else, that is also fine. We MAY have a white board. If you are teaching a mechanical module, you are welcome to bring tools, a work stand and if doing a tire change, bring an old wheel, so you arenít trying to finish a wheel to ride on. But all of the resources in the class are at your beck and call for your teaching module.

Critique

When each of the modules is over, we will assess the strong points of the presentation and points that need work. But the presenter will do the first critique of themselves. When asked to critique the rule is that you MUST start with the good points first. Also, no one is allowed to critique the CONTENT, only the presentation as far as style and clarity etc.  We will also use that format for the parking lot drills. After a parking lot presentation, the presenter gets to go first in the critique.
