Effect Of Collectivist Culture on Child Development Discussion
The graduate utilizes appropriate presentational communication strategies in personal and professional settings.
An effective presentation requires careful preparation. In this task, you will create a plan for an informative or persuasive presentation that addresses a research-based, academic topic. Your preparation will include researching your chosen topic, planning for your intended audience, and creating an outline or other plan for your presentation.
Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.
You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.
- Describe your intended audience and why the topic is important to this audience (suggested length of 2–5 sentences).
- Create a presentation plan (e.g., outline) for a five- to seven-minute presentation on your chosen topic by including the following parts:
- An effective introduction that includes the following aspects:
an attention-getting opening
a thesis statement
a preview of the main points of the presentation
Note: For a five- to seven-minute speech, two to three main points are recommended.
- Supporting evidence (e.g., statistics, published research) for the main points
Note: Avoid using personal opinion, personal research, or personal experience as your supporting evidence.
- an effective conclusion that includes a summary of the main points and closing comments.
- a minimum of three credible sources
- Acknowledge sources within the text for all content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized, and provide a reference list that includes the author, date of publication, title, and location of information (e.g., publisher, journal, website URL) for each source. APA citation style is strongly encouraged.
Note: Refer to the attached APA Guide for Communication Performance Tasks if needed.
- Attach one visual element (e.g., chart, graph, picture, model) that supports one of the main points with acknowledgement of any source information used.
Content reflects attention to detail and is organized and focused on the main ideas (whether prescribed in tasks or chosen by the student). Terminology is pertinent, used correctly, and effectively conveys the intended meaning. Mechanics, usage, and grammar promote accurate interpretation and understanding.
The description includes the intended audience (e.g., age, gender, occupation, educational level) and why the topic is important to the audience. The descriptions have enough critical detail and specificity to demonstrate the audience’s relevance to the topic.
An introduction is provided and includes an opening, a thesis statement, and a preview of the main points. The opening uses an attention-getting strategy (e.g., humor, startling fact, rhetorical question), the thesis statement clearly articulates the specific claim, and the preview is complete and aligns with the main points.
Evidence is provided, is relevant, and is compelling for the main points. Evidence relies on published research, statistics, and other credible source types.
The conclusion is provided and contains both an accurate summary of the main points and closing comments. The closing comments tie back to the introduction and include an effective closing strategy (e.g., call to action, memorable quotation, challenge).
The submission includes 3 or more credible sources. Sources are from published research, peer-reviewed work, experts on the topic, and other credible source types.
Acknowledgement of sources within the text is provided for all content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized. A reference list is provided and contains a reference for each of the sources used. Each reference contains the required details (i.e., author, date of publication, title, and location of information).
A visual element is provided that fits the topic and context and fully supports at least 1 main point.
