Talk to your parents, grandparents, and/or other older relatives or family friends to find out what they can tell you about your family’s heritage or genealogy (a history of the ancestry or descent of a person or family). Using whatever resources you can find, tell your family’s cultural history in a PowerPoint presentation consisting of 7-10 slides. Feel free to include pictures to illustrate your story, though take into consideration file size when you add pictures. The format and content for your presentation is outlined below:

Introduction (1 slide)
Give your presentation a title and include your name. This is a good opportunity to include a family photo or other picture that demonstrates your cultural heritage.

Family Structure (1 slide)
Describe your family make-up: number of people/ages, family heredity, relatives in other countries, etc.

Ethnicity (2-3 slides)
Discuss your family’s ethnic background. Some questions to consider: What are the different ethnicities in your family that you and your family members know of? How important are the issues of ethnicity and ethnic heritage in your family? Do you observe particular customs because of your ethnic heritage? Are there family stories involving immigration to the U.S. or movement from one part of the U.S. to another? Did your family and/or ethnic group encounter prejudice or discrimination? If so, describe those encounters. If not, why not?

Gender Issues (1 slide)
Discuss how gender roles have been distributed in your family. Has this changed over time or through generations? Is there an ethnic component to the way gender roles have been defined in your family?

Economic and Social Class (1-3 slides)
Describe what social class you consider your family to belong to and why. Has your family been upwardly or downwardly mobile during your lifetime or across generations? What kinds of occupations have your family members held? Address the way class status has affected your family and whether this status is also affected by ethnicity. You can also explore how your family’s educational achievements have changed over time.

Conclusion (1 slide)
Discuss what you have learned from researching your family’s heritage. In what way are the different elements you’ve explored (social class, gender, and ethnicity) connected?

In each slide, list a few bullet points and use the Notes feature (located below each slide) to type commentary on the points in your bullets. Avoid trying to cram lots of text onto the slide itself.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
