Complete the Multimedia Presentation Planning Worksheet, in which you will discuss your potential multimedia presentation for Project 3.
Download the Multimedia Presentation Planning Worksheet to help you start Project 3 off on the right foot. Since this course has entailed quite a bit of writing thus far, this assignment provides you with an opportunity to get creative. You have the choice of three tools—Prezi, PowerPoint, or Microsoft Word—to present your opinions and observations on the creation and value of historical inquiry as it relates to the work you have done on your first two projects.
As you review the directions for this week’s assignment, you will notice that its critical elements draw from previous learning modules and encourage you to look at the rubric for the final project. I recommend strongly to take the time to look over these documents carefully, review the applicable past learning modules and plan out how you hope to tackle the project over the next two weeks.
For this week’s worksheet, please note the connection between the Brainstorming section and the Slide Payout section. The slides ask you to breakdown the various elements you discussed in the Brainstorming section. Also, please note that the rubric asks you to “develop” ideas. This means writing more than a brief sentence in each space—you need to provide some details on the content of each slide’s texts and visuals.
The MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER about Project 3 is that its focus is on historical methods—how this course has taught you to think historically and why this is a valuable skill that impacts how you see the world.
This is a big project with many parts and will benefit from developing a plan of attack in the next few days. This is what all big history projects call for. Every writing project I undertake goes through the same process you are using right now—developing a question, finding sources, creating and revising a research plan, critically analyzing my sources, and then developing a detailed framework of what the final project will look like. The most important part of the final assault is tackling it one piece at a time. If at all possible, DO NOT try to do this week’s or next week’s assignment all in one day. Tackle it one part at a time and it will affect the results in a positive way.
