Group Presentation Assignment Sheet
Each group will give a presentation on a cultural and educational ethnography of a neighborhood in Chicago. The group should use at least four sources (not including the textbooks). The group will need to visit the neighborhood. The group should meet with a reference librarian at Oakton for help in finding sources for the information requested. Each group will give a 15-minute Power Point presentation and distribute a study guide to the class that includes information from the presentation, as well as a list of sources.
Questions answered should include:
It will be necessary for the group to divide up responsibilities for the research on the presentation. However, this is not several individual presentation assignments lumped together. The final product should be the result of the group working together and should look and sound like one, coherent project. It is not necessary for all the group members to get up and present “their bit.” In fact, the presentation will be much more cohesive if one, or possibly two, people present the material in class.
All students in the group must participate in an equitable manner determined by the group – this means that students may contribute more in some areas in which they have special interests and skills. All of the students in the group will receive the same grade, unless group members approach me with concerns well before the in-class presentation. If a group is having difficulties, I will be happy to facilitate a meeting among all group members to help resolve any issues.
