P515 students. You may be asked to make a five-to-ten minute classroom presentation explaining the accident, answer questions from the P415 students, and lead a discussion of the report. If asked, you are expected to make a cogent, concise presentation (not a casual extemporaneous narrative) so I recommend that you prepare a few notes.
