-Flowers for Algernon Choice Project: Presentations and public speaking debrief.

 

Answer hip-hop PREflection questions. This is an assignment, not a text message to your friend, so please make your answers thoughtful, clear, complete, and grammatically correct. It's okay if they're just your best guess or your current thoughts because this is a PREflection (please don't worry about right or wrong answers or do any research), but they should still be professional, quality responses. I shouldn't have to say this (it should be obvious!), but after glancing at a few of the first answers, I wanted to make my expectations clear.

READ DIRECTIONS and input your question here.

 

Use the project sheet and each expert's talents and studies to decide what questions to create. I recommend not looking at other people's questions before you think of your own, since it will make it more difficult to come up with one. Look through the questions after you have your own and make sure it's unique before inputting it into the document.
