Planning for Group Research Presentations:

I will give you and your group members some time to sketch out your Group's Research Presentation!

Research Presentation Teams: http://www.tamucc.edu/wiki/JenniferBray/ResearchTeamsAmpTopicsLCM

In Writing Project 4, Prof. Bray asked for you to complete a Group Proposal where you were expected to collaborate with your group research presentation team to outline your end of semester oral/visual presentation. http://www.tamucc.edu/wiki/JenniferBray/WP4MFall2017

Using your group's proposal and this template, I would like for you to brainstorm some ideas and start to build your PowerPoint.

Here is the PowerPoint template: Research Presentation Template LCM for group presentations! Feel free to use as a guide as you build your own.

To help you do this, use the questions below as a guide. Just the simple act of writing down all your thoughts and ideas about a topic can be inspiring when you see one idea, it can make you think of many more! Write your ideas down!

Consider:

1.)What would be the best approach to presenting your argument and supporting research to these potential AUDIENCES? (For example: college student, professor, a historian, the general public, etc.)

  • How will you ensure your presentation appeals to these audiences?
  • How will you ensure your message to these audiences will be clear?

2.) Think about your presentation using the traditional questions that journalists/ historians use to tell a story: Who? Where? When? What? Why? How? In your presentation groups, work together to help brainstorm some ideas for VISUALS.

  • How can you represent your topic's historical context/background visually? Ideas?
  • How can you make a solid connection to your current issue visually? Ideas?
  • Help one another to brainstorm some ideas! :)

Your "ticket out"...

In your groups, you need to decide:

  • Draft your presentation's "sexy title." Come up with some possibilities. Make sure that your title reflects each presenters research topic!
  • Decide the order of the presenters. (Who will present first? Will you take a chronological or thematic approach to the organization of your presentation?)
  • What kind of images could you each use to ENHANCE your research/argument? How will your images reach your audience? Support your Learning Community M presentation theme?
