After putting together my presentation it helped me to realize a more firm direction of where I was going with my research. It also helped me to decide on a more specific topic and made me realize that I had to do more research than I had done up until that point.
The questions after my presentation helped me get ideas as to where I’m going to be focusing my direction and a sense of what I really wanted to learn. It also gave me an idea about what other people wanted to learn about my topic which helped me to figure out what I wanted to find out too.
Overall doing this presentation gave me a firm direction as to where I was going with my research and made me realize I needed to narrow down my topic. This was due infact to the idea that I would only have 12pages to right about my topic and needed to have a set goal as to what I wanted to tell people and how I was going to accomplish this.
