Poster Presentation Assignment & Topics

Poster Presentation Assignment

In your groups you will chose an issue and create a poster presenting your opinion about that issue. I will give you a list of issues to choose, there is no right or wrong answer, just good or bad ways to support your opinion. You should do some basic research on your topic and include some data, numbers, examples, etc. in your poster presentation. It should not just be your beliefs, but also evidence supporting your beliefs.

On the day of the poster presentation you will hang your poster on the wall. Two of your group members will stay with the poster and present the information. Two other members will go listen to presentations. Halfway through the class we will switch who is presenting and who is listening to other groups’ presentations.

The poster should be art paper sized, should include text and visuals. The text on your poster should not be complete sentences or paragraphs but rather bullet points that the presenters will use to explain in more detail.

Your grade will be based on your presentation, student evaluations, the evidence/arguments you choose to support your opinion and the esthetics of your poster. Part of the grade will be a group mark, and part will be an individual mark based on your presentation. There will be questions on the midterm exam from the poster presentations.
