Visual Presentation Assignment Description

Let's re-think how we can present information. Use Visuals instead of Words - This assignment is inspired by Snapchat. Give me an oil story from this lesson.

Find 5 visual images beyond what is in the text, lessons, and videos provided to add visual illustration to one specific section of the readings.

This assignment will be submitted in Canvas.

Here are the requirements for this assignment:

  • Must keep all 5 pictures focused on one topic from this lesson.
    • can be historical, can be from Flickr, online, scanned from a book, scanned from a newspaper, can be charts, graphs, something simple or flow charts. Must be a visual!
  • One has to be something modern - taken / created in the past year.
  • One has to be something you created - photo, drawing, graph.
  • One has to challenge a normal or classic way of viewing the situation.
  • Identify the chapter, and section that you are giving visual representation.
  • Include citation for each image - including the one you create - take credit.

Note: This is not judged on your artistic ability, but the individual way you represent the topic.

Use PowerPoint to compile your visuals, and include a sources lists that explains where each visual came from or who created it. Must be saved and submitted as a PDF file. Or you could create a Prezi and just give the link in the drop box. No more than 20 words to explain each image.

If you need any assistance with this please ask as many questions as you need. I am happy to help you.

Look in the discussion forum for the questions to make your comments on.
