Tracking this document will become very important to you. The topics (other than chapters and metaphors) are examples from prior years only. They are not restrictive.
We will start with the "metaphors" presentation and then the Gould chapters. After this we will do the historic intelligence figure presentations. We will finish the modern intelligence and Methods I presentations next. Then Methods II presentations will will, in turn, be followed by the Faculty Article presentations. The Project Background presentation will precede the last presentation on your 'full' project presentation.
For the earlier presentations, there will be cross-over in the presentations such that some PRES#2 will occur before some PRES#1s, etc.
Metaphor Presentations (2013)
These are the student presentations of the seven metaphors of intelligence. Each should be about a five to ten minute presentation that defines the metaphor and provides an illustration of the type of explanation it offers. Useful visuals are nice where appropriate.
Gould Presentations (2013)

3. measuring heads
