In-Class Reports

In-Class Reports, as discussed throughout Syllabus Builder, may be either individual or group presentations. Included under this heading is any course component that requires students to make a presentation to the class at large. Some of these presentations are substantial projects, involving research, either individually or in groups; other uses of in-class reports involve only minimal preparation, in which instructors ask students to lead the class in a discussion of a particular work or groups of works.
