The first step of the lesson should be to locate the powerpoint. Once the
powerpoint is located it is necessary to to begin describing the process of the critique to
the students. This lesson will be a continuation of a previous lesson dealing with
critiques. Powerpoint will serve as a general refresher to students. All materials should
be obtained and ready to go by the start of class.

have any questions at any step of the process. If students are hard of hearing or cannot
hear the lesson plan I will provide them with written instructions ahead of time.
