the presentations i would like you all to see would be the ones where i clutch my half-articulated notes and scribble diagrams and big words on the board and then twirl around several times while trying to explain them. unfortunately the twirling does not translate well into text.
i am beginning to see which form of lecture i should rely on. i mean i don't know if the gesticulating at the board does my students any good but it is at least much more fun for me.
by contrast, with today's carefully planned lecture i almost put myself to sleep.
