**This will be quite different from what you may usually think of when you think of doing a presentation. We have referred to our group many times as the technical writing team working together to create '''The Coastal Bend Zombie Survival Guide''']]. At this point when most of the writing and the visuals are complete, we now need to come together as group and talk about the book as a whole, rather than focusing on single chapters as you have to this point. So the final presentation will function as a working group meeting in which each group will report.
**See [[Attach:AGENDA.doc | Agenda]] for the meeting.
**Each group can determine how to present the information. It does not have to be fancy, just provide the information. And one person can speak for the group. It does not have to be one of those things where everyone has to talk.

!!!Chapter Draft
*Group and Individual
*Each member of the group must submit a paper at least 2 pages (single-space, 1 inch margins, no larger than 12 point font) about the chapter topic. The paper should have an additional page 3 that will include your reference list (using APA format http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/). Format for the first 2 pages is not as important as making sure you have at least 2 pages of content. These 2 pages can include information you have already written, but the information will not count unless it is relevant to the chapter. So part of the assignment involves you deciding if you have the info you need or if you need to gather more info. And remember the information can come from many different sources, including interviews, observations, blogs, movies, etc.
*Using all of the information gathered by the group, the group will need to submit a first draft of the chapter, including visuals.
*The group will also need to submit a separate statement that describes the purpose of the chapter as it relates to the purpose/audience of [=TCBZSG=] as laid out in the [[Attach:cfpCBZSG2.doc | CFP for '''The Coastal Bend Zombie Survival Guide''']].

*For this assignment you will be applying for the chapter group that you would like to be a part of. Choose which of the 6 chosen chapters that you want to work on, then write a cover letter and a functional resume that best present your qualifications for being a member of the group who will write that chapter. Your resume should not be the typical chronological generic one that you may normally use. It has to showcase what specific experience you have that will make you a good contributor to the chapter you want to work on.
*Audience - Dr. G this time, as I will be the one deciding the make-up of the groups.
*Format
**Cover letter - Attach:ZombieAppLetter.doc
**Functional Resume - your choice of layout. Put your zombie picture on it for more effect.
*Once the groups are chosen no changes can be made except for extreme circumstances, and a formal written request has to be submitted for those to be considered.
