  1. PSCI 1104 – World Politics Group Virtual Presentation Instructions This assignment provides an opportunity to collaborate with your classmates online and to practice your research and presentation skills! This assignment is also in line with MCTC’s General Education Competencies (communication, critical thinking, life skills/personal responsibility, and social responsibility) as a means to enhance lifelong education. You will have the opportunity to work in small groups to prepare a virtual presentation of one of the topics outlined in the course textbook, Paul D’Anieri, International Politics: Power and Purpose in Global Affairs, Brief Edition , 1st Edition: 1) The United Nations System (p. 258-263) 2) The European Union (p. 264-268) 3) Transnational Crime (p. 300-306) 4) Global Environmental Problems (p. 306-312) 5) International Health Issues (p. 312-320) GROUP VIRTUAL PRESENTATION ( DUE : Wed, July 23 at 11:59pm) You will be graded as a group on the presentation (40 points – see grading rubric):  As a group (5-7 students), prepare a virtual presentation on your selected topic.  You will need to conduct independent research to supplement the information on the topics outlined in the course textbook; be sure to compile a bibliography of references cited.  You will need to coordinate with teammates via via D2L discussions, e-mail, text, etc.  The virtual presentation will consist of a visual presentation created by the group (i.e. PowerPoint or Prezi – 10 slide maximum, or 30-second video using free platform such as Animoto), as well as accompanying written narrative (2-3 pages describing the material in your visual presentation, plus a bibliography of references cited).  An equitable division of effort would be for each member to prepare 1-2 slides for the visual presentation and 1-2 paragraphs for the narrative. Alternatively, half the group could work on the visual presentation and the other half on the narrative. Be sure group members are clear on their role in the group effort!  Written narratives must be typed and double-spaced. Use font size 11 or larger and submit as MSWord document (.doc) or Adobe Acrobat file (.pdf) only. Please do not use other formats as they may be incompatible with D2L.  In both your visual presentation and narrative, include TOPIC as well as NAMES of team members. Be sure to cite references using proper MLA Citation or APA Citation and remember to spell check and proofread papers before submission!  Your audience is your classmates and your instructor. Use your imagination – the presentation should be interesting, creative and informative!  Remember to plan ahead and work as a team! INDIVIDUAL ASSESSMENT OF GROUP PRESENTATION ( DUE : Sat, July 26 at 11:59pm) You will be graded individually on the individual assessment (20 points – see grading/teamwork rubric): Following the group presentation, each student will complete an Individual Assessment of the Group Virtual Presentation via SurveyMonkey (link will be provided to each group for the survey, and you will be required to enter your name/MCTC ID# for credit). You will earn 10 points for simply completing the Individual Assessment via SurveyMonkey, and up to an additional 10 points based on your contribution to the group effort per the Teamwork Rubric.
