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.
Maybe you have always wanted to try Prezi, you are already comfortable using PowerPoint, or you want to format your presentation as a newsletter in Word (feel free to get really creative here and have fun with this). No matter your preference, decide which tool would be the most effective method for you. Complete the worksheet to gather your thoughts around what text, visuals, and audio you might include in your multimedia presentation.
To complete this assignment, review the Multimedia Presentation Planning Worksheet Guidelines and Rubric document.
Part 1: Brainstorming
Instructions: Brainstorm your thoughts on each question in preparation for creating an outline of your multimedia presentation, including specific examples as appropriate.
|State three historical lenses that could be applied to your topic and explain how each lens can be applied.
|Describe how one of the lenses you just identified might change how you approach researching your topic, thus affecting the historical narrative.
|Discuss the conclusions you can draw from thinking about how history is told. Consider how historians are persuaded by their own biases, motivations, and influences of their time.
|Describe how your research of a historical topic can help you understand contemporary issues in our lives, and try to list at least two related contemporary issues
|After taking this course, what is your opinion about the statement “history repeats itself”? Do you think this is accurate? What information from the course guides you to this conclusion?
|Discuss your obligation as a citizen of your society to understand the history behind issues that impact you every day. (Note that this does not specifically have to relate to your topic).
Part 2: Outline
Instructions: Create a plan for your presentation. You will need to create 10 to 12 slides that respond to the critical elements in the Project 3 Rubric. (If you are using Microsoft Word, your multimedia presentation should be 4 to 5 pages long.) The slide title suggestions are provided to help you develop your presentation. The field for slide text is a place for you to develop your ideas for your presentation’s content, drawing from Part 1. The field for slide visuals and audio ideas is a place to develop ideas for visuals and audio elements that can enhance your presentation and engage your audience. As you develop your ideas, you are encouraged to provide details as to how you will use these elements to engage your audience.
