Climate Change that is impacting the U.S: Hurricanes. In this course, you will have multiple module activities that allow you to build a final project to be presente-d in module 8. This final project will be in a video format similar to a TED talk.
Generally, you will need to gather information and create an organize-d, informative and convincing presentation on one aspect of climate change that is impacting the U.S. and the world.
Here is the climate change issue you will choose:
First, read all the assigned material and view the videos so you are effectively prepared to select a topic and present a proposal.
Next, submit the following:
This assignment should be 1-2 pages in length.
Title of your presentation (working version so this can change)
The topic proposal paragraph should be 4-5 sentences that describe the specific aspect of climate change you will be examining and why you think this is important.
A short list of the causes and results this presentation will examine.
A short list of efforts underway or proposed to alleviate this issue.
At least two references in APA style for sources that will be informative in writing your article. Use the EC library or Google Scholar to locate these academic sources. Do not use Encyclopedias, Dictionaries except for basic definitions. Avoid Wikipedia or blog-type, opinion-based sources. Also, academic sources should be scientific reports, government, national or international, and professional organizations or peer-reviewed scientific research articles.
Lastly, you can ask the librarians for assistance on researching your topic. Here is an example (using a topic you are not assigned) of what the assignment should look like: click here for download. download
Do not forget to include in-text citations and complete APA style references for all sources. Also, the Excelsior Library Citation Tip Sheets and Resources (Links to an external site.) will be a helpful guide. You may also wish to use a citation generator – you just insert the information, and it creates the citation in the format you indicate (MLA or APA, for example). Lastly, here are 3 citation generators to choose from:
1. Citation Machine (Links to an external site.)
2. Bibme (Links to an external site.)
3. EasyBib (Links to an external site.)
Overall, Compose your work in a .doc or .docx file type using a word processor (such as Microsoft Word, etc.) and save it frequently to your computer. For those assignments that are not written essays and require uploading images or PowerPoint slides, please follow the uploading guidelines provided by your instructor.
