 Is the summary clear, and is the language used accurate enough?
 Are there any pictures presented with the summary and could they be used in the final magazine?
 Once the presentation is over, ask a few extra questions about the story.
 Overall, have you chosen a good range of stories for this group’s magazine?
 Think about the topics, and also the publication dates – do these articles offer a good overview of the famous people of Ukrainian heritage ?
