 PowerPoint with Peer Review:

·         Each student will complete the word form/template and submit it to this corresponding discussion forum by the due date and time noted in the course outline including the following information:

o   Student Name (1 point)

o   Selected Key Message (3 points)

o   Innovative Project Idea (28 points)

o   Rationale for Project as it relates to the Key Message (28 points)

·         You will be placed into small groups to provide peer review to your classmates’ project proposals.  Reply to two of your peers within your small group by posting the following to eachpeer’s initial post:

o   List two specific suggestions related to your peer’s innovative project idea that could be incorporated into the proposed project.  (For example, is there additional information or greater detail that could be covered or is there a suggestion to strengthen meeting the key message?) (20 points)

o   List two specific suggestions regarding the rationale provided by your peer for his/her innovative project.  The suggestions should be ideas to help strengthen the project and perhaps may be ideas to answer questions that you may have about the proposed project. (20 points)

·         The instructor will also provide feedback to each student on this assignment.  The feedback received from the instructor and peers should be used to help you to further develop your final project.

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.
