Essential Questions Due Today

PLUS Next Steps - Outline and Works Cited

Outline and Works Cited Due May 13th

Once you've determine your topic, you need to develop your outline and start gathering your sources. This is the "meat" of your project - and should take some time to development.

What to turn in:
1. An outline for the 10+ PowerPoint slides (not including title slide). Each slide should focus on a major points you plan to discuss, with two or three items you plan to discuss for each point.

2. A Works Cited with at least 3 source entries.

  • Your sources should be from .org or .edu sites, magazine or newspaper articles.
  • You may also use print books, including your textbook.
  • You may not use WIkipedia or other Wiki sources.
  • You may also may not use online encyclopedias.

If you need assistance with the Works Cited visit:

Safe Assign

A quick head's up - All outlines must be submitted in either .doc, .rtf, or.pdf format. The outlines will be run through SafeAssign as part of the grading process. Please make sure that you are submitting original work - this assignment counts as an Essay Test grade - so it is VERY important!

Essential Questions DUE TODAY May 8th!

What is an Essential Question?

What do I submit?

  • You need to present an essential question (or 2 or 3), which is essentially a topic about which you want to present.
  • Simply choosing a topic like sleep deprivation or eating disorders is too general - what is it about the topic specifically do you wish to share? Think about causes, environmental factors, genetic factors, how it affects a specific demographic group and why, innovative ways to alleviate the issue, etc.

Think about how much information you can realistically cover in the requirements for your Powerpoint - you need a topic that is manageable, but with enough available information to present well.

Why more than one?

  • The reason for multiple questions is in case your first choice (or second) has already been selected by someone else.

I will post topics already selected tomorrow.

INFORM: Final Project is Open!

Rather than taking a Final Exam in your course, you will complete a Final Project - which has multiple steps and multiple items to submit! Remember, however, that the grade you earn on this Project counts 25% of your ENTIRE grade for the course. It is a great opportunity to pull up your grade.

Don't miss items or skip the assignments - because it can also impact your grade negatively, if you don't fulfill the requirements.

Items to submit:

  • Essential Question submission (assignment grade for 4th grading period)
  • Outline and Works Cited (Essay test grade for 4th grading period)
  • Discussion board post of PowerPoint presentation, plus comments on classmates' projects (assignment grade for 4th grading period)
  • PowerPoint project (Final Exam grade - 25% of the grade for the ENTIRE COURSE!)
