In-class assignment:

Your presentation presents your project proposal in light of your research. You need to organize your process and proposal into an easy to follow narrative arch. Creating a presentation is much like writing a story. You must develop the main plot sequence and fill in the details from there. So, first you will need to develop an outline of the concepts you’d like to present:

  1. Introduction
  2. Body
    1. Point 1—Rising Action (this)
    2. Point 2—Climax (means that)
    3. Point 3—Denouement (so then, I propose this)
  3. Conclusion

Once you have a very basic outline, you can begin filling in more details:

  1. INTRODUCTION
    1. Attention-getter:
    2. Central Idea:
    3. Establish credibility and relate topic to audience:
