Create a 5-minute slide presentation for the class about your project topic. This is not so much to showcase your project-in-process as a self-enclosed assignment in itself with the purpose of engaging your audience's interest in your topic, educating them, interacting with them, and providing common points of engagement through references to some assigned readings.
Best practices for accessible presentations by Jennifer Sarrett (coming soon below) can guide your composition.
The presentation should include (but not be limited to)
--a bit about why you chose the topic
--connection points to readings we've done in class: interesting or relevant application of keywords to your topic.
note: I have had several students ask questions about the third requirement. The connection to a keyword can be simple and straightforward. Everyone's topic will work with this. Please talk to me if you are having trouble making the connections; I can help.
Sign ups in class will begin 10/6.
