Sociology: Group Presentation Guidelines

Can be PowerPoint, Video….etc. Presentations should be 10 to 20 min long. The presentation should be focused, organized, and interesting with multiple visual aids. This is not to just be a reading of reports.

Group will lead the class in discussing the topic and findings of the material.

Groups are welcome (and encouraged) to use the technology in the classroom or somehow be creative in discussing your topic.

Each of your in-class presentations counts for 25% of your final grade. 

Each Group presentation is responsible for:

Presenting a summary of the content, core concepts of material related to the chosen topic;

Engaging the class in discussion and/or some form of interaction relative to the topic material;

Making connections between your presentation and other class concepts/readings;

Employing creativity in the presentation style; and

Meeting with me at least a week in advance to discuss plans for your presentation.

My evaluation of your presentation will focus on:

The facilitation of the topic material will be evaluated on the substantive content (75%) and the presentation form (25%).

Content (75%): Substantive information provided, linkages to class concepts, cogent analysis

Form (25%): Presentation style, creativity, organization, and class engagement
