Be original. Create an overall question that interests you and gives room to create original surveys.Reading Quiz/Test: Take notes on the Readers. Focus your notes on the very things we’ve been teaching you. Quizzes/Tests will reflect these very same things (e.g. Appeals, Structure/Chunking, Main messages, rhetorical features, etc.)Presentations: Make sure slides are easy to read. Follow the 7x7 rule- no more than 7 bullets/slide, no more than 7 words/bullet. Make the powerpoint/prezi visually clear, appealing, and easy to learn from.
