Columbus East High School
Cornerstone Roundtable Presentation Information
CORNERSTONE ROUNDTABLE EXHIBITION
Listed below is the protocol for Roundtable Exhibitions. It is important for all participants to read your Letter to the Roundtable prior to your Roundtable Exhibition.
Please understand that this presentation is completely student driven. Your parents, advocates, and your Torch Time advisor will not prompt you or tell you what to do. You will need to allow time at the end for each of these people to comment on the work you have shared.
I. E-locker Log On and Introduction (1-2 minutes):
After you have logged onto your e-locker, you will introduce each of your Roundtable participants.
A sample introduction might sound like this:
“I'd like to thank you all for being here today to participate in my Roundtable Exhibition and to review my Cornerstone work. May I introduce my Torch Time Advisor, Mrs. Anderson; my friend, Brandon Glick; my employer, Mr. Jeff Lane; and my parents, Kevin and Jenny Wicker.”
Make sure that you memorize this introduction beforehand. Look at each one of your participants as you mention his/her name.
II. Student Presentation (10 minutes):
A. At this time you will tell a bit about yourself and your interests.
B. Next, you will address how you relate to the CEHS Mission Statement. You may choose to read this aloud from your portfolio and then address it.
C. You will also address the Guiding Principles and explain why these are important to you and to the school.
D. You will then present the Learner Expectation(s) that you feel you do well and show evidence from your portfolio that best demonstrates this.
E. Next, you will present the Learner Expectation(s) that you feel you need to improve and show evidence from your or portfolio that best demonstrates this.
F. Finally, you will address your Sophomore Individual Growth Plan. Share two areas that you are planning to improve and list the methods of improvement that you will use. If you completed an IGP in Keystone last year, you may want to compare the two IGPs. What has changed?
III. Roundtable Dialogue (5 minutes)
The Torch Time advisor may open the floor to any of the participants by asking for positive feedback or questions for clarification. In the event that there is little dialogue, your advisor may ask you the following questions…
A. What are your plans after high school?
B. What do you feel you still need to do to prepare for this?
C. What do you feel you are doing differently as a sophomore than you did as a middle school student or as a freshman?
D. What advice would you give to incoming freshmen to CEHS?
E. If there is one thing that you'd like to change about your school involvement in the last two years at East, what would it be?
F. At this point, what would you consider the highlight of your time at East?
IV. Commendations and Recommendations (2-3 minutes)
At this time you will be commended for the work you have done, and the advisor and participants may make recommendations for you to consider for the future. Be open and gracious to these suggestions. The people you have invited to your Roundtable Exhibition are here to support you in your academic and personal journey. Do not forget to thank your participants for coming to your Roundtable Exhibition.
