Final Project (25% of Grade)
For your final project, you will make a video discussing a global issue of your choosing. Your video will be approximately 5 minutes in length and will contain 5 Power Point Slides, which you will narrate, with closed captioning. You will upload the video to Youtube, and share a link here by Monday, December 12, 11:59pm by a website url.
All projects will follow this format: 1 slide (1 minute) to introduce your issue and its importance; 1 slide (1 minute) to discuss cultural aspects of your issue; 1 slide (1 minute) to discuss economic aspects of your issue; 1 slide (1 minute) to discuss political aspects of your issue; 1 slide (1 minute) for concluding remarks and to share what you have learned this semester.
Slides should contain a mix of text and visual images, as appropriate, and the narration you provide should tell us more than what is written on the slides. In other words, you should not simply load your slides up with text and read them. Be sure to credit sources for photographs and other visuals.
