First-Year Symposium is...

  • A public display of writing/composing/creation/argument/research by first-year students at the end of their first term. This student research symposium is set up like a giant science fair- First-Year Symposium requires all first-year students to create something, based on written work that uses media, technology, and/or creative presentation to display their argumentative, expository essays and/or research projects for a mixed, general, academic audience.
  • For Triad K you will be presenting on all of the research you have conducted related to your Project 2/ and your Argumentative Essay(Multimodal Argument). You will literally translate the contents of your essay into a multimodal presentation- a PowerPoint/Prezi and tri-fold board. In the next several class meetings, Dr. Carstensen and I will work with you to get prepared!
