This is a follow up to the previous announcement posted at 1:35 on 4/5
Hi Again Everyone:
I have assigned you all to groups for presentation purposes. See matrix below and excel version attached for your group assignment. Here is hat to do next:
1.Email your fellow group members to find a mutually agreeable time to present at the Macaulay Conference, and come up with a title. Make sure the title is broad and general, since you all have not had a chance to discuss what your respective projects have in common in detail. You may want to select the group name I have assigned to your group, or another name.
2.The designated contact person should register with Macaulay at: eportfolios.macaulay.cuny.edu/seminar4/ as soon as everyone has agreed on a time. The designated contact person is the first person in the group by alphabetical order last name. They are bolded/talicized below.
3. Once this is done, sit back, relax, and don’t worry about next steps with regard to your group presentation until we all meet in the classroom on April 16th (some of you can’t come to the tour next week, I understand)
Do continue to work on your annotated bibliography. Everyone must submit their own final paper as planned. The only changes right now have to do with presentations.
4.On the 16th, I will discuss these developments with you in class. At the next class, April 23rd, you will have the entire class time to share your projects, discuss, and begin to formulate your group presentation. You will need to brainstorm about what you can all collectively say, based on your projects, that is compelling and relevant to the future of NYC.
5.The class after that (April 30th) will be another field trip. The class after that (May 7th) will be a practice presentation day in advance of the conference.
Let me know immediately if you have:
-Your designated contact person isn’t responsive
-For any reason at all!

Much to my annoyance, I have found out that you have to present at the upcoming conference in groups, not as individuals. I did not know that, and I apologize for not knowing that. It was not made clear to me.
Fortunately, there is a lot of overlap among topics. In the next hour or so, I am going to assign you all to groups based on your topic. I will name one person to be the “sign up” person for the conference slot, so that this process is not delayed.
We will allot enough time in class for you all to work together on presentations, and then practice them. Do not worry about this. More details will be coming in the next email I send.
Thanks for your patience,
