Researching information

By the end of this activity, you will be able to:Develop an increased understanding of concepts related to interpersonal communication. Apply principles of interpersonal communication through an extemporaneous presentation.Instructions  Purpose  Guidelines  ResourcesShort Version:You will be responsible for researching information pertaining to interpersonal communication and delivering a recorded 5–6-minute presentation (posted within a Canvas discussion), with 5 sources.  It is worth 100 points.  There is nothing written due.Your presentation will need to connect clear and specifically to course material. Be creative on this one and make the presentation fun, interesting and meaningful. You will need to create a PowerPoint Presentation with 5-6 slides. Your presentation will be graded on the quality of information presented as well as the style of the presentation. Please read the Guidelines and Rubric carefully. It will be posted as a discussion post.  Replies are expected. First–while I am not asking for a written paper or outline, you WILL need to write one!  If your speech is not organized, with your points supported and documented, your grade will be low because your speech will come across as disorganized.  Essentially, while I am not asking for a written outline, I am expecting to HEAR one.You are essentially elaborating on a concept connected to the course.  You are NOT merely repeating text material. The focus on your speech needs to be narrow and specific.  For example, a speech about nonverbal communication is not going to work for this assignment.  But a speech about the power of Aromatherapy, connected to Olfactics (study of smell), as a powerful, subtle, non-verbal code would be perfect (& fascinating!) You can find a narrow focus within the topic (like the Aromatherapy example above) or a narrow application of a topic (like how fringe groups within the US use language to create identity)Your content needs to be clearly organized.  Your introduction should grab our attention, establish the significance of the topic, and clearly state the sub-points you will be discussing. Obviously, the body of your speech should mirror your preview.  This is where you will likely orally cite your sources and reference your visual aid.  Try to smooth out your transitions within the body of your presentation.Your conclusion should clearly review your main points and end distinctly.  Be sure to clarify the “So what?”–tell me why this matter.4 sources required BEYOND the textbook, for a total of FIVE.  I expect to hear at least three sources orally cited within your presentation.  Create 5-6 slides on a PowerPoint/Google Slides or similar that will accompany your speech. Here are a few suggestions: Be sure your opening slide introduces you by name and identifies the topic.  Your closing slide should be a bibliography (APA/MLA).Use color and visuals but do not let your visuals dominate the focus of your speech.  Embedded videos are fine but no more than 30-45 seconds (total).Avoid crazy slide transitions (especially with Prezi!  I will throw up…yuck!!)Do not try to cram so much onto one single slide that we cannot really focus in on the point you’ve trying to make.Make sure your text is large enough for us to read and keep it minimal.  This slideshow will have more text than the identity collage, but do not overdo it.  Avoid full sentences. We need to learn from YOU, not read slides.Your last slide should be your bibliography.The recorded speech should be 5-6 minutes!  Here is what I am looking for in terms of your speaking: Consistent eye contact with the camera (glancing at notes is fine)Expressive energy as you reference and explain the images in your presentation.  This energy should come out naturally in your voice, facial expressions, and gestures.Sitting is fine.Clear indications that you have put effort into the speech (a professional “nice” appearance; minimal “um”s, “likes, “you know; no reading)Chapter Presentation* Chapter Presentation* CriteriaRatingsPts This criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome Content 20 pts Full Marks0 pts No Marks20 ptsThis criterion is linked to a Learning Outcome Speech Delivery 20 pts Well done (Consistent eye contact with the camera; Expressive energy as you reference and explain–This energy should come out naturally in your voice, facial expressions and gestures Sitting is fine.; a professional “nice” appearance; minimal “um”s, “likes, “you know; no reading)15 pts Very solid–just one thing to work on (Consistent eye contact with the camera; Expressive energy as you reference and explain–This energy should come out naturally in your voice, facial expressions and gestures Sitting is fine.; a professional “nice” appearance; minimal “um”s, “likes, “you know; no reading)10 pts Good start–a few things to work on.
