Group Research Presentation

Your Presentation is basicaly a 15-20 minute preliminary report
on your
Group Report (Term Paper).

It is a preliminary report of your Group Term Paper,
to a different audience (your classmates), and with a different style (informal)
.

Think of your presentation as a TED talk for your classmates,
if you are familiar with TED talks,
without having to pay the $3,500-$15,000 fee to give your talk at a TED conference.

(If you are not familiar with TED talks, you should check on them. Have a look at some TED Talks. TED Talks Topics.)

Is public speaking fear limiting your career? -- Tim Smedley, BBCcapital (22 March 2017)


"Teamwork, plus her experience making presentations in class, proved valuable for an internship this year at fashion designer Kate Spade."

  This is the real reason new graduates can't get hired -- Ronald Alsop , BBC (19 November 2015)

NOTE: Try to work an analytical section into your Presentation and Report (Term Paper), and at least think about approaching your Senior Seminar term Project from the traditional "four-fold" approach of American Anthropology. If the "four-fold" approach does not work as a major appoach, consider at least addressing in summary form the relationship of your chosen topic(s) to traditional American Anthropology.

  • Audience
    • Classmates

  • Purpose
    • To let them know what you were working on, and what you found out, and what might be interesting to look at in the future

  • Style
    • for the Presentation, it may be informal
    • for the Report (Term Paper), formal academic

  • Format
    • Any standard format and citation convention (APA, MLA, Turabian-Chicago . . .)

      • doublespaced
      • with one-inch margins all around
      • with body type font 11 or 12
      • illustrations, tables, figures, diagrams . . . may be included, but must be properly placed and cited

When relevant to your topic be sure to work in what is happening now; that is, where appropriate, relate it to current affairs.

This course is governed by the . . .

University of Minnesota Duluth Student Academic Integrity Policy
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm>

UMD Office of Student and Community Standards
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/>

"Academic dishonesty tarnishes UMD's reputation and discredits the accomplishments of students. UMD is committed to providing students every possible opportunity to grow in mind and spirit. This pledge can only be redeemed in an environment of trust, honesty, and fairness. As a result, academic dishonesty is regarded as a serious offense by all members of the academic community. In keeping with this ideal, this course will adhere to UMD's Student Academic Integrity Policy, which can be found at [http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm]. This policy sanctions students engaging in academic dishonesty with penalties up to and including expulsion from the university for repeat offenders." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

and the UMD Student Conduct Code
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/code/>

and the

Student Conduct Code Statement (students' rights)
<http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/conduct/conduct-statement.html>

The instructor will enforce and students are expected to follow the University's Student Conduct Code [http://www1.umn.edu/regents/policies/academic/Student_Conduct_Code.html]. Appropriate classroom conduct promotes an environment of academic achievement and integrity. Disruptive classroom behavior that substantially or repeatedly interrupts either the instructor's ability to teach, or student learning, is prohibited. Disruptive behavior includes inappropriate use of technology in the classroom. Examples include ringing cell phones, text-messaging, watching videos, playing computer games, doing email, or surfing the Internet on your computer instead of note-taking or other instructor-sanctioned activities." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)

Instructor and Student Responsibilities Policy

AVISO!

A Note on Extra Credit Papers

Failure to comply with the above codes and standards when submitting an Extra Credit paper will result in a penalty commensurate with the lapse, up to and including an F final grade for the course, and, at a minimum, a reduction in total points no fewer than the points available for the Extra Credit project. The penalty will not simply be a zero for the project, and the incident will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards.

 

A Note on "Cutting and Pasting" without the Use of Quotation Marks
(EVEN IF you have a citation to the source somewhere in your paper)

If you use others' words and/or works you MUST so indicate that with the use of quotation marks. Failure to use quotation marks to indicate that the materials are not of your authorship constitutes plagiarism—even if you have a citation to the source elsewhere in your paper/work.

Patterned failure to so indicate that the materials are not of your own authorship will result in an F grade for the course.

Other instances of improper attribution will result in a 0 (zero) for the assignment (or a reduction in points equal to the value of an Extra Credit paper), and a reduction of one grade in the final grade of the course.

All incidents will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards as is required by University Policy.
