Presentations: Today is the day! Students should have their plots out and ready to present. Go in the order of students on the PowerPoint presentation. Students will answer three questions in their presentations: What is your concept? How is it realized in your plot? What did you learn about being a lighting designer from this project?


Have each student show the class their work, asking questions when necessary.  Encourage the students to ask questions about their peers’ projects, and also let them make comments about the work. (i.e. What they like, what they wonder about, clarification, etc.)


When the student finishes their presentation, have them turn in their plot and paperwork to you.


The rubric is included.
