-SAVE File AS “PPSX” NOT “PPTX”
*Please find the Presentation Prompt below this brief set of instructions for posting your presentation on Canvas.
You will need to post your presentation by Friday (10/30) at 11:59pm. To do so, please follow these instructions:
Since we cannot conduct presentations in person, you will create your presentation via PowerPoint. You will develop slides and record your presentation using the “insert audio” function. Each presentation should be between 4-8 minutes long.
You must remember to save your file as a “PowerPoint Show” (.ppsx) so that it plays the audio and changes slides automatically once the presentation begins.
Next, post your presentation (“PowerPoint Show”) to the “Discussions” tab in Canvas by “replying” to the discussion thread titled “Presentation.” In this post, include a short description of your presentation above the file as well (i.e. 1-3 sentences that identify your topic for the class).
After uploading your presentation, make sure to log out and log back in to Canvas to double check that your file uploaded and presents as you intended. It will not play audio and change slides correctly unless you save it as a “PowerPoint Show.”
*Once you have posted your presentation, don’t forget to reply to two peer presentations on this thread (these replies should be 5-15 sentences long) by Sun. (11/1) at 11:59pm
Presentation due: Submit on Canvas by Friday (10/30) at 11:59pm
Presentation length requirement: 4-8 minutes
Objective: This presentation requires you to reflect on the current state of imperialism and empire in the world today. It asks you to consider the direct (or indirect) impact of colonization in the U.S. and elsewhere, perhaps in your own life or in the communities that surround you. This assignment, then, allows (or forces) us to reflect on various questions: How do we—either as Americans, Seattleites, Washingtonians, or even Seattle University students and faculty in particular—get interpellated by these larger imperial legacies, perhaps without even realizing it? How do we potentially reinforce the power dynamics left behind by these legacies? Lastly, how might we begin to resist and/or thwart these legacies and thus the aftermath of empire? In addressing these questions, the goal is to think creatively and practically about what advocacy, activism, and/or resistance can look like in our present moment. Such a project asks you to outline your own plans for civic action. You will then present these plans on the Canvas Discussion Board, which will in turn model a civic space, ultimately providing each of you with a testing ground for community engagement and civil discourse.
Course Guidelines (as articulated by the university): “Students will practice translating and applying their knowledge to some appropriate public or civic context in at least one assignment in this course. This assignment should ask students to practice engaging in some kind of advocacy related to the challenge.”
With these guidelines in mind, use your presentation to outline a strategy for advocacy, activism, and/or resistance (i.e. write a letter to the editor, plan a protest, form a discussion group on campus, etc.). Your presentation can and should respond to a topic that relates to the course theme and one that interests you (e.g. Japanese American internment, the Duwamish tribe in Seattle, the protests in Hong Kong, etc.). Begin your presentation by providing a historical introduction to, as well as the necessary cultural context for, your topic. Once you orient the audience to your topic, you should then present a practical and specific plan for resistance and/or advocacy.
You will be graded on the following:
Does the presentation proceed logically?
Do you adequately introduce and explain your topic?
Do you meet the time requirement (including not going beyond your allotted time slot)?
Do you project your voice and annunciate?
Do you include a well-organized visual aid (i.e. PowerPoint or some other presentation software)?
Do you have a clear plan and strategic approach to advocacy (i.e. who is the “audience” and why)?
Do you make a convincing case for the significance of and rationale for this particular kind of advocacy?
Do you sufficiently address the complexity of the problem?
Does the presentation offer a logical response to the problem?
