Leticia has desk copies in the office. Make copies of your pages and return, since we do not have 14 copies.
\You should strive for clarity (and inspiration) and can work examples if you wish to use a portion of your time in that manner.

Note that there is a constant danger even for the advanced teacher to pack in too much material.
We recommend you concentrate on as few points "to bring across" as possible. You should practice try to get the timing right.
