For this assignment, you will use the “species” you chose for the Week 2 Mini-Presentation.
Objective: Develop an audio-narrated PowerPoint presentation based on the research you have conducted about your chosen species.
Before You Start:
To prepare for this assignment, I recommend that you do the following:
Read these directions carefully
Read the BIOL180 Final Presentation Grading Rubric.pdf.
The grading rubric is a detailed evaluation that I will use to assess your performance. It also will help you understand what is expected of you as you prepare your assignment.
Use your own words (paraphrase). For help with paraphrasing, please review the ‘Quoting and Paraphrasing’ help in the Trefry Library Writing@APUS Center.
Note that your Turnitin report similarity score should be under 20% (not including references) and free of paraphrasing issues. Review the color-flagged text on your report, fix any issues, and resubmit again before the deadline (this assignment is set to unlimited submissions until the deadline).
Note that less than 10% of your work should contain direct quotes.
Email me with any questions!
Assignment Instructions: Putting it all together, you will develop your presentation based on the work you submitted for all of the steps to date as well as the instructor feedback you were given.
Final Presentation requirements:
Your presentation will be submitted as an audio-narrated PowerPoint, narrated by you, the student. You cannot use “text-to-speech” programs or technologies that do the narration for you unless noted as an approved accommodation in a current DSA letter you have furnished to me. For instructions on how to create audio narration in PowerPoint, see the following link: Record a Slide Show With Narration. Audio narration is a requirement!
Proper use and pronunciation of scientific terminology are required. For help with pronunciation, see this link: Cambridge Dictionary
There must be visual elements (e.g., photos, videos, graphs, figures).
Your presentation must contain approximately 10-15 slides (excluding reference and title slides) and run approximately 5-10 minutes.
Text is organized using concise phrases typed on each slide and properly cited.
Work that is improperly cited and referenced or lacking either proper in-text citations or references may not be accepted for credit.
Be sure to add your name, date, class name, instructor name, and project topic to the TITLE SLIDE.
