Group project (10%): You will be expected to work with a group of students (4-5 people total) on a presentation (~12 minutes long) due at the end of the semester. You can select the topic you are interested in (based on the syllabus topics), and you will be assigned to a group. Expectations and requirements for the project are as follows:

    • (2%) Relevance to and incorporation of course topics
    • (1%) Incorporation of at least 5 properly referenced academic sources
  • End of semester:
    • (1.5%) Your group will turn in a few bullet points of your key ideas to be used for the weekly course quiz, which should include your works cited for your presentation (if you presentation does not have an appropriate place to put this information)
    • (5%) 12-minute group presentation (format of your choice, e.g., pre-recorded video, Powerpoint in class, podcast to be played in class, scripted performance, etc.)
