Investigation You are going to investigate a great event in American History You will discuss a topic with me to authorise. You will then deliver a PowerPoint presentation on your chosen topic. You will work individually. The main focus for assessment will be on your presentation, but you will also be assessed your Powerpoint.
Your presentation must: have a minimum of six slides. Include both text and images. Only have bullet points that you will use to deliver your presentation. Be your own work or clearly referenced where necessary. Evaluate two of your sources. at least 3 minutes long, not including questions delivered to an audience of at least three
In your presentation you will need to: Tell when the event took place, where it happened, who was involved, what were the outcomes/consequences. Describe why you selected the topic. Evaluate two of your sources in terms of format.
Researching your topic You need to research to ensure your presentation has enough in it. You can research in the following ways - 1.Articles in quality newspapers. Insert key words into the paper's website. 2.Articles from magazines, trade publications and journals are also available from http://findarticles.comhttp://findarticles.com 3.Your school or local library. 4.Essays/extracts from literary/scientific/medical texts. 5.Carefully selected websites. Ensure that the information is as up-to-date as possible! Use a minimum of 4 sources. Make sure too that you note down all your sources as you need to record these in your presentation.
List of Sources You need to make sure that you write down your sources. You should have a slide with a bibliography in alphabetical order according to the surname of the author. You should set out the information by giving the author’s name, then, give the date of the publication, next, the name of the publication (in italics), then, the place of the publication and finally, the name of the publisher. It should look something like this - Books King, R. (2000) Brunelleschi's Dome. London: Penguin. Newspapers and magazines Goring, R. (2003, January 4) She's Talking Our Language Now. The Herald, p.14. Reference works with no named author Chambers Biographical Dictionary. (1984). Edinburgh: Chambers. Government/organisation report Department for Education and Employment. (2001). Schools: Building on Success. London: The Stationery Office. Electronically sourced material Name and title of article/publication as you would for a print publication, but instead of the place of publication and the name of the publisher, put the web address, the date the text was posted (if available) and the date you accessed it. Dewey, R. A. Psych Web. http://www.psywww.com/ (2002).Retrieved January 25, 2003.
Today: Use the iPad to start your research – remember to note down every source you look at and take notes from at the back of your jotter. By the end of the period you should have chosen one source you would like to use and have written a summary. Also take some notes on the following: Main ideas Purpose Audience Language Layout
How to paraphrase a source (put into your own words) When reading a passage, try first to understand it as a whole, rather than pausing to write down specific ideas or phrases. Be selective. Choose and summarise the material that helps you make a point in your presentation. Think of what "your own words" would be if you were telling someone who's unfamiliar with your subject (your mother, your brother, a friend) what the original source said.
PURPOSE Why has the text been written? e.g.: To argue To explain To evaluate To persuade To instruct To entertain To inform To describe To analyse To recount What is the writer trying to do?
au·di·ence noun: a group of people who gather together to listen to something (such as a concert) or watch something (such as a movie or play) the people who attend a performance the people who watch, read, or listen to something a formal meeting with an important person who a piece of writing is aimed at/who would read it
AUDIENCE Who is the text aimed at? e.g.: Adults Children Teenagers Pensioners Men Women People with a specific interest (e.g. film fans) Parents Peers Professionals Wide/general
Language Is the language interesting? YES! Writers choose the words and phrases they use in their writing carefully to achieve a particular effect. They may want to: provoke an emotional response from the reader give a detailed description of a person, place, event Persuade Inform argue explain evaluate instruct entertain analyse recount
You will need to decide what type of being language is used and give an example from all your sources.
