Our course videos are now posted here, please share.

Presentation (35 points): You will need to present on your paper topic. Your presentation should be in the format of a Prezi.com presentation, a photo essay, or a short documentary video. Your presentation should be posted on the blog and have a title, a short description, and a link to your online presentation file.

BE SURE TO STAY WITHIN THE TIME LIMIT SO THAT WE CAN GET TO EVERYONE.

Assignment grading rubric:

  • Topic not covered in class (5 points).
  • Proper citation of 3 academic articles/books not assigned in class, MLA format right next to quote (5 points).
  • Within the 4 minute time limit (5 points).
  • Overarching visual theme that brings the presentations together in a creative visual way (4 points).
  • Clearly start your main argument prominently and cover that first. Make your argument with visual imagery as well (4 points).
  • Make your own argument that is backed up by examples; do not list a summary of articles. Your argument should also be reinforced visually (4 points).
  • Use of visual imagery to liven up the presentation overall (if using video, no longer than 30 second) (4 points).
  • Make the presentations interesting and/or funny, if your classmates laugh or ask a question (4 points).

Final papers: if you received a grade 70 and lower, you can re-write the paper by Saturday at noon. You will need to email me of your intentions ASAP, and include the grading rubric sections and the points you earned, and the changes you will be making. For the paper, you need to use track-changes in a Word document, include a list of the changes made in a cover e-mail. Re-writing does not guarantee a higher grade. If your paper required editing for readability, note that editing changes were not marked on the paper and that will still need to be done for a higher grade.
