Quality Enhancement Program (QEP) AssignmentThis assignment requires the student to choose a historical American figure from the list providedand record a video presentation/speech about the figure. Students will analyze and interpretsecondary sources (as well as primary if the student sees fits) and then create an argument throughthe use of historical evidence. Students will use at least two secondary sources for this assignment.The sources need to be books, articles, or comprehensive web sites. Web pages like Bio.com,History.com, and others of that sort will not give students the requisite information neededand are unacceptable. It should go without saying that Wikipedia is also not an acceptablesource. There will be points off for using unacceptable sources. The whole assignment willhave a value of 5 total points. The presentation will consist of two parts: an oral presentation andvisual aids.Presentation: Students will then present their research findings in a 3-5 minute, recorded, oralpresentation in front of at least four people. All presentations must pass the 3 minute mark,otherwise the student will be docked 2 points. Any presentation that exceeds the 30 second graceperiod at the end of 5 minutes will be docked 2 points per 30 seconds over the time. The studentwill also develop a creative visual in conjunction with the oral presentation. Dr. Smith suggestsPowerPoint, but also does not want to limit student creativity. Students need to have a copy oftheir bibliography to turn in as well. Any presentation that involves the student readingdirectly from any form of notes or their visual aid is not truly meeting the oral presentationrequirements, and will be docked 1 to 3 points, depending on the severity of the infraction.The Presentation will be graded according to the following formula:Verbal and Nonverbal Communication – 2 pointsContent – 1 pointsArgument – 1 pointsVisual Aid – 1 points 5 pointsThe deadline for submission of the presentation is May 17, 2019.
