Here, nearly all the slides lack visuals, & that sameness bothered the response team too, as you see in the report below. Also, the YouTube video may be lively, but its not such a useful piece of research, since its played for comedy; its in no way a substantial complaint about the lunch policy. Then too, at the end the Mediation & Conclusion slides overlap somewhat. Still, a lot of good understanding here, & a logical argument. B+
Response Team Essay John Vandercar, Paul Tong, Ian Baer English 250 Section RN Prof. Domini April 20, 2013 Mediation Response: Shelby Bunch Shelbys mediation presentation dealt with the topic of Michelle Obamas school nutrition plan and the problems it has created in the community. Visually, the PowerPoint is very text heavy. With only two pictures across eight slides of information, a better balance of images and text would greatly help the presentation be more visually stimulating, (Vandercar). The text in the presentation is well organized, although, a lot of things were read directly off the slides, particularly slide 3. The sentences should be better notated, (Tong). The voiceover on the PowerPoint clearly explains the mediation, spoken calmly and paced well. The voiceover has random pauses in speech and a few words are stumbled over. Overall it is done well, but has some noticeable errors, (Vandercar). Facts used throughout the PowerPoint supplement the argument and are relevant. Presents a wide array of facts on the issue, (Baer). Logically, her mediation is based off research and makes sense, (Baer). There was good usage of personal example in slide 5, concerning her personal need of calories to be able to make it through the physical activity involved in her day, (Tong). Overall, the mediation is done well, where the greatest fallbacks to this presentation is that it is not very visually appealing, and some noticeable stumbles in the voiceover.
