Explain the misconception that that news story is reporting, and a scientific article that supports it.
Each student will present for 6 – 8 minutes. The oral presentation will be on a specific topic of science as it relates to the concepts we are covering in the course (Psuedoscience, Science and the Environment, Politics, Business, etc). Find a news story that falsely depicts that scientific topic that you are interested and explain the misconception that that news story is reporting, and a scientific article that supports it. Images, graphs, and videos (not exceeding a minute in length) should be incorporated to supplement and help explain content. Slides should not contain only text. Students will be required to present PowerPoint slides during class, and slides will be submitted to the instructor using Canvas. In the presentation, the student uses speaking skills to communicate his/her message including proper verbal and nonverbal techniques, and all elements of introductions, main points, and conclusions. The presentation will be graded with the Dialogues of Learning Oral Communication Rubric.
During the presentation, you will use speaking skills to communicate your message: proper verbal and nonverbal techniques, and all elements of introductions, main points, and conclusions with your audience (the class and instructor) in mind. Practice your presentation to achieve an appropriate speaking rate, pitch, volume, and conversational tone. Identify words that you may not know how to pronounce in advance of your presentation date. Do not simply read text off of your slides or notes; rather, focus on integrating your slides into your spoken presentation. While practicing, you should also keep in mind that you will need to maintain eye contact with your audience, and model proper facial expressions, body language, and gestures. Similar to the written paper, you must properly apply and integrate credible support for your ideas by citing your work during your talk and creating an APA-style reference slide page.
You may make your slides using your iPad and mirror onto airplay in the classroom. However, if there are technical difficulties we will be switching to the classroom computer. Thus, it is required that you submit your slides as a PowerPoint file because our classroom computer only has PowerPoint. Be aware, if you make your presentation in Keynote, you may lose links, animations, and formatting when converting to PowerPoint format. Submit your presentation document titled as per the following example: presentation_law.pptx.
In addition to the criteria above, you will be graded on the quality of your slides. Your slides should follow the 6 x 6 rule: limit your text to six words per line, six lines per slide. What’s more, your slides should be professional in design. Avoid distracting or unreadable fonts or color combinations. Also, refrain from using excessive slide animations, which can be annoying and appear unprofessional. Your slides should also be written with proper grammar, punctuation, and style.
