- This is your opportunity to shine and to show how much you know about your topic and the current literature. All questions are fair game, even if they are not in the articles you read.

- You need to know the background and context of your research question, as well as present your analysis of the literature.
- Presentations should:
- tell the audience where you are going - overviewing, framing and setting the stage
- take them there - what are the 3-5 key points you want to convey in your review?
- tell the audience where they've been - summarize the take home messages.
