Group Research Presentation Ds

Groups of 4 or 5 will be formed based on chosen topics. Each group presentation will last about 15-20 minutes. Each group member will present one or two of their best sources (along with a discussion of how they found them). The group will also report on the results of a small field research project about a local non-profit organization that might be interested in the group’s research findings.

These presentations provide a general reader (not an expert) with an overview of the most relevant sources of information about a topic or problem. Groups presentations will be evaluated primarily on their source selection but also on the clarity and organization of the presentation; it is thus in the group’s best interest to help individual members choose their best sources to present (And the idea is that when you discuss sources together, you'll become better critical evaluators of sources!).

In general, group members all receive the same grade for this assignment. However, each member will evaluate other member's participation at the end of the project, and members who didn't fully participate in the field research project and presentation design will receive a lower grade. Presentations created by 4 or 5 fully participating members will be better than those in which only 2 or 3 members were active, and I will take this into consideration when grading.
