Obstacles Faced in Pursuit of the American Dream Directions for Group Presentation
Discuss the 4 Non-fiction Pieces Does every member of the group understand each piece? What is the purpose of each piece? What lines did you feel were important? Is your handout complete and are your pieces annotated? (Yes, this IS a grade.)
Brainstorm Make a list of all the movies, books, works of art, articles, documentaries, songs, poems… that focus on your group’s issue. Think about: Historic Milestones Inspirational Individuals Attempts to overcome the obstacles in the past
Divide and Conquer Each group member must present the findings from one piece of the packet, as well as use another outside piece. (This means a minimum of two slides each.)
You MUST have majority of your presentation in NOTES Below each slide there is a section called “notes”. This is where the notes should be about what you plan to say. The actual slide is just used as a visual to assist you in your presentation. The details of what you plan to say should not be on the slide. I will grade your notes section heavily.
Naturally Flowing Presentation Your presentation must flow naturally from one person to the next and one slide to the next. Once each student has created his individual slides, decide on the order in which they should be presented. You MUST also have an introductory slide, final call to action slide, and works cited slide. (That’s three additional slides along with the two slides each group member needs to create.)
