To prepare for this assignment, I recommend that you do the following:
Read these directions carefully
Read the BIOL181 Mini-Presentation Grading Criteria. The grading criteria is a detailed evaluation that I will use to assess your performance. It also will help you understand what is expected of you as you prepare your assignment.
Use your own words (paraphrase). For help with paraphrasing, please review the ‘Quoting and Paraphrasing‘ help in the Trefry Library Writing@APUS Center.
Note that your Turnitin report similarity score should be under 20% (not including references) and free of paraphrasing issues. Review the color-flagged text on your report, fix any issues, and resubmit again before the deadline (this assignment is set to unlimited submissions).
Note that less than 10% of your work should contain direct quotes.
Email me with any questions!
Assignment Instructions: The topic of your Course Project will be any medical disease or condition of the body (e.g., arthritis is too broad; choose one specific type such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid, etc.). Choose ONLY one medical disease or condition that interests you, as this will be the topic used for all Course Project steps and assessments throughout the term.
Your presentation will be submitted as an audio-narrated PowerPoint, narrated by you, the student. You cannot use “text-to-speech” programs or technologies that do the narration for you unless noted as an approved accommodation in a current DSA letter you have furnished to me. For instructions on creating audio narration in PowerPoint, see the following link: Record a Slide Show With Narration. Audio narration is a requirement!
