Presentations

You will give 2 to 3 formal presentations this semester. The number of presentations and the number of people that will present for each event will depend on the number of enrolled students, among other possible criteria. For now, the first presentation is on a chapter of our textbook, and the second presentation is on one of the social media platforms.

Grading

A “4” presentation addresses all of the above criteria with only one or two minor flaws. For the social media presentation quizzes, a “4” quiz contains appropriate, maybe exceptional, questions that reinforce key concepts and functionality about a SM platform.

A “3” presentation addresses all of the above with three or four flaws spread over a few of the bullets, i.e., not three or four flaws in the summary. Other variations are possible. For the social media presentation quizzes, a “3” quiz contains appropriate questions that reinforce key concepts and functionality about a SM platform.

A “2” presentation addresses all but one of the minor criteria (e.g., dressing appropriately); or partly addresses two major criteria (e.g., an incomplete summary). Other variations are possible. For the social media presentation quizzes, a “2” quiz contains some appropriate questions that reinforce some key concepts and functionality about a SM platform.

A “1” presentation addresses all but two of the minor criteria (e.g., dressing appropriately); or partly addresses more than two major criteria (e.g., an incomplete summary); or is missing two major criteria. Other variations are possible. For the social media presentation quizzes, a “1” quiz contains some appropriate, or off-topic, questions that reinforce few key concepts and functionality about a SM platform.

A “0” presentation that does not meet the criteria of a “1” presentation, or is not delivered.
