The topic will need to be approved by the professor through submission of a ‘Topic Approval Form’ on MyCourses by the due date listed.

Deliverables will be outline/notes, PowerPoint slides, and a video submission.

Grading Criteria (What constitutes a good assignment?): A good assignment will tell a story! The student will engage clearly in both visual (using slides) and physical (body language & tone) ways while managing time limits of the Ted Talk.

  • Demonstrate imagination and creativity in the design and development of your presentation
  • Develop and sustain strong bonds of identification among the speakers, audience and the topic
  • Demonstrate artful use of language and performance techniques
  • A professional presentation that integrates verbal and non-verbal communication skills
  • Use of professional visual aids (required- PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi, etc.)
    • Video or Audio clips up to 30 seconds (maximum) may be used

Students who are absent (unexcused) on their designated presentation day will lose 10% per day between classes (including weekends), and will be first to present the next class.
