Oral presentation: a scientific study
Presentation Instructions – DSL 200
The topic is: Orcas
Oral presentation: based on a scientific study on YOUR animal topic
Presentations dates and due dates to Canvas are listed in the syllabus. All presentations and the corresponding speaking outline are due the same day to Canvas. The late work policy applies to presentations and speaking outlines not turned in on time. Students will be picked randomly to present any day of the presentation week. So student must be prepared to present any day of that week. Students not prepared to present on the day they are called will present the next class period at a 5% deduction (as per the late work policy).
For the presentation students will choose a topic from the list provided for the class in Canvas. Students will all pick their topic on the same day in class via a method the instructor choses. Students should familiarize themselves with the list ahead of time and have a few topics in mind. Students who are not present that day will have their topic assigned by the instructor.
The student will review a scientific paper on the topic they have chosen. The paper must be peer-reviewed. If the student is unsure if their paper is peer-reviewed, they should check with the instructor. The student must explain how the scientific method was used in the paper they have chosen, including an explanation of the hypothesis, experiment, results, and conclusion of the study. Students may need to research above and beyond the paper they have chosen to provide a sufficient introduction to the topic.
The presentation will be graded using the Dialogues of Learning Oral Communication Rubric which can be found under materials in Canvas.
