Transcripts:

Tutor: Well, Anita and Lee, that was an interesting presentation you made about John Chapman. 

Anita: Thanks.

Lee: Thanks.

Tutor: There are a few points, I’d like to run through before you write it up. One thing, which you didn’t explain was why you decided to do a presentation on this man who spread apple varieties across the US.

Anita: Well ages ago, we were chatting about stuff, we’d read as children and I told Lee “The Johnny Appleseed” story. 

Tutor: Mmmmm…..

Anita: I had these American storybooks when I was small. Then, when we were looking into the area of domesticated species of plants for our presentation, we realized that the introduction of the apple with the settlers in the US would be a good case study. 

Lee: And I remembered Chapman. So we looked up the real guy behind the legend.

Tutor: Right. I think that would have made a good intro. 

Anita: I thought it was too personal. 

Tutor: Just a couple of minutes would have drawn your listeners in. Anyway, now a more                                         serious point. You didn’t mention the sources of some of your information. 

Lee: We used some books and journal articles and did an internet search and found some good sites. 

Anita: We’ve put them on the back of the handout, we gave everyone at the end. 

Tutor: No! See. “Johnny Appleseed Man and Myth 1967”. The thing is you really have to make this explicit when you talk and anything you show, data you project from your laptop, etcetera, you must have the source on it.

Anita: Right. Okay.
