Abstract of Oral Presentation

An abstract is a concise summary of a written or oral production. For your oral presentation, you are to write an abstract that is between 60 and 70 words and post it on your blog. Your abstract should be rich in content, but no less than 60 words and no more than 70 words. Do NOT waste words by saying the obvious (e.g. "For this oral presentation I am going to teach the class something about..."--13 words wasted!) The title does not count as part of the word count. After your classmates have delivered their presentations, feel free to leave comments on the post for their abstract.

And now, just for the fun of it, try using this tool (Springdoo) to make a podcast out of your abstract--you can listen to my example here

Another nifty tool for podcasting is called Odeo. Here is my humble example
