A good science presentation

Next week we will focus on how to give a good science presentation, as well as continued work on your audio segment scripts.  To get ready for next week you should:

  • Watch this video on Talking Science
  • Choose a topic for your 5-minute presentation
  • Work with your group on a first draft of your audio project script and bring it to class
Your script should contain a hook in the introduction that will arouse your audience and use the 3-act structure we have talked about in class.

Some audio project research

029.5After a well deserved break we will be jumping back into audio project development when we return to class on March 14th, along with some more discussion of the assessment test.  To prepare for next week you should do the following:

  1. Write an approximately 500 word post for your blog related to the topic for your audio project.  The research you do for this post will ideally be of use as you develop your project.
  2. Think about possible structure for your audio project.  Your group will spend some time in our next class planning out the scripts for your projects.
  3. Select three questions from the assessment test that you would like to discuss in class.  These can be questions on topics that you would like to review, questions that you think did not fairly assess your knowledge of biology, or areas that you think the Department can do a better job covering.
  4. Bring your scantron to class.  I will need to collect these from you.
