Problem-Cause-Solution Persuasive Presentation AssignmentPurpose: The purpose of the persuasive speech is advocate for a position for something to change. Think about a problem you face in the workplace or in something that personally affects you. You will then describe the problem, the cause of the problem, and provide a solution(s) to the problem. The persuasive arguments must be backed by credible evidence/sources.TopicAll problem-cause-solution persuasive presentation topics must be approved by Dr. Marsh by the assigned deadline provided for you on the syllabus and/or the deadline set in class. You must submit your topic(s) on Brightspace by the deadline. I do not accept late work. If your problem-cause-solution persuasive topic is not approved at all by Dr. Marsh, your presentation grade will be lowered by one letter grade and your overall engagement grade will be lowered by ½ letter grade.Assignment RequirementsSourcesYou are must verbally three sources (you may use more than three sources if you would like), place the sources in the complete-sentence preparation outline, and place the sources on the APA references page.You are highly encouraged to use the Pellissippi Library Database to conduct your research. No encyclopedias (including from the Pellissippi Library Database), dictionaries (including from the Pellissippi Library Database), Wikipedia (automatic D on the presentation), blogs (automatic D on the presentation), CDROMs or other general reference materials.You should use credible and a variety of different sources when collecting information. You are expected to find the most recent information you can. Sources that are deemed not credible or outdated will be taken into consideration when determining your grade by your instructor based on the criteria for grading presentations located on Brightspace.Pictures and charts do not count as sources.Verbally citing your sourcesFailure to not cite any of your sources in this presentation will result in a grade no higher than a D with the potential of earning an F.Citing your sources verbally (aloud) is important when giving a public presentation. The audience needs to know what information is coming from you and what information is coming from your sources. All presentation complete-sentence preparation outlines will be checked thoroughly through TurnItIn software within Brightspace. If I suspect that you plagiarized a presentation, you will earn a F and be reported to the Pellissippi academic conduct committee (where you could face the possibility of failing the class or face expulsion). Plagiarism is a serious issue when presenting presentations, so just do not do it.How to Verbally cite your SourcesTo verbally cite your sources during your presentation, be sure to include the 1) author or organization name, 2) source type (website, newspaper article, etc.), 3) what makes the source credible, and 4) the year the source was published or last updated.Structure of the presentationThis presentation should include the most basic components of any presentation—an introduction, main points, and conclusion.Complete Sentence Preparation OutlineA copy of your complete-sentence preparation outline (typed) must be submitted on Brightspace before class time on the day that you are scheduled to speak. No credit will be earned if the complete-sentence preparation outline is not typed in complete sentences. Type everything word-for-word that you think you are going to say in your presentation (including all source information). This outline is meant to help you be comfortable and familiar with your presentation content. You can use the complete-sentence preparation outline template that I provided for you on Brightspace. It is labeled as “Presentation Outline” under the Content tab on Brightspace.If you do not submit the complete-sentence preparation outline by your assigned deadline on Brightspace, you will have earned an F for the complete sentence preparation outline. If I am unable to open the complete-sentence preparation outline document submitted on Brightspace, you will earn an F. Please be sure that the assignment correctly uploads on Brightspace.APA References PageYou must attach an APA references page to you complete-sentence preparation outline. We are using 7th edition of APA in this class.
