You will sign up to make a presentation on the content for one class this semester, such as Agenda Setting or Framing. Please find an example of some type of media content that links to the topic we are studying for your assigned week. The content you select could come from a variety of media channels, including traditional news outlets, the blogosphere, or social media outlets. The goal of your presentation is to help us better understand the theoretical framework or principles addressed by the readings with a specific example.
Your oral presentation should be around 5 minutes long. Please do not exceed the time limit of 10 minutes. You will narrate your presentation in class. Please include at least a couple of visuals to help the class follow along. It is up to you what type of visuals you want to use (e.g., a screen shot of some website of interest, excerpts from a news article, PowerPoint slides, or perhaps a combination of different visuals).
Please practice your presentation so you do not lose points by not meeting the time requirement. The grading details are in the rubric below.
