This week, construct the final version of your research review. As you wrap up your study that culminates into the final assignment, you should use your previous assignments, including your mind map to assemble your final product. Remember to incorporate any feedback you have received from your professor so far. It is very important to explain all your concepts (theories, types of methodology, ethics, findings, etc.) to your reader and avoid assuming that your reader is an expert on your topic
For your final paper, examine and report on approximately 10-12 articles of importance in your topic area of interest. As you are writing, you may find that you still must support some parts of your argument better with more research, or that some research does not really fit with your overall organization and plan. Write a coherent, well-organized paper.
Be sure that your paper contains:
Length: 12-15 pages, not including title and reference pages
References: Include a minimum of 10 – 12 scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
As part of your Signature Assignment, you have addressed key elements relevant to your Research Topic; you will now finalize the application of those materials accordingly (training or webinar). Refer to your previous assignments (e.g., your annotated bibliography, chart/annotated outline) to finalize this presentation, and use any feedback/feed-forward provided by your professor and additional materials you have researched further. Be sure to include any activities you will have your audience complete, along with any resources, handouts, etc. in accordance with your training or webinar.
Key points that should be evident in your presentation, at a minimum, are listed below:
You have the option to present your oral presentation to your professor or submit embedded audio clips in each slide as if presenting. Remember, you are presenting to an audience you are either training or conducting a webinar for, therefore consider your language and tone accordingly.
Your PowerPoint presentation should reflect professionalism in your usage of appropriate and appealing images and colors. Note: Good presentations do not contain too much information in the slides/transitions. They include enough information to “whet the appetite” of the participants, and then the presenter completes the presentation with his or her narration.
Your presentation should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights (yours) relating directly to this topic. Your presentation should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards (slides should have citations where information is used from an outside source and there should be a references slide at the end with full APA citations of all material used in the presentation).
Length: 15-20 slides, not including scholarly resources
Resources: Include a minimum of 5 scholarly resources.
