You will be writing a complete speech and including a series of 7-10 PowerPoint slides that address the questions under consideration from a scientific perspective. The questions should allow you to reflect on how the topics of this module relate to your life. The speech will be written in the speaker’s notes section of each corresponding PowerPoint slide. You will also incorporate limited text on the slides themselves, as well as graphics (and/or animations) to enhance the presentation. Ask your instructor about topics you are not sure about. Engagement in the Discussion area will also help you find further information to support your understanding of the material for inclusion in the presentation. Keep in mind that none of the specific wording in your final presentation can be used in the Engagement posts.
APA formatting will be used for citations in the written work. Graphics also need to be cited. No answer may have more than 10% quoted material, so paraphrase the information instead to demonstrate your understanding. *Note: The template and rubric have some additional guidelines and information for formatting your PowerPoint.
