This guide should help you:
You will work as part of a group of three people to choose the conservation policy the group wishes to address. You may choose your own groups. Please let me know later than 3/25 if you do not have a group.
Groups will be assigned their presentation order and day based on a random draw from a hat done on the first library day. Be aware that no two groups may present on the same policy, thus the first come first choice policy applies. Policies must be chosen by the end of the first library class on 3/26.
An outline of your paper is due by 4/11. Your group’s paper will have the following form:
Your group’s presentation is expected to follow a similar structure. A complete draft of your 3-5-page summary about the policy (with in-line citations and references) is due 4/25 and your group must bring three printed copies of the completed draft to class as well as submit an electronic copy through MyClasses (one per group). Your group will exchange your paper with three other groups and each group will assess the drafts against the grading rubric. Assessments of other groups’ papers are due at the beginning of class on 4/30. Peer reviews will be graded for thoroughness.
Groups are expected to prepare a 9-11-minute presentation to present in class (5/7 & 5/9). An electronic copy, to be turned via MyClasses, of the final paper (one from each group) is due by 11:59 pm on 5/10. The final version of the paper should be between 3-5 pages, be double-space, and follow the APA format.
It is up to you to meet outside of class with your group members. You should decide together which state you want to investigate, which sources you will use, how you want to structure your paper and presentation, writing the paper and how you want your PowerPoint/presentation to look. All formatting of this paper to include references and citations for this project need to be in the APA format.
Do not take this class if you know you cannot be there for the final project presentations, this is a required part of the class.
