speaking and academic writing skills
1. Read one of the articles I sent you
about culture and communication

interesting? Do you find some
information you did not know
3. Write a responsive essay about what you read.
ESSAY AND PRESENTATION:
Using the knowledge
you gained from reading the articles and
write a three page essay about culture and communications. Do not use any quotations from the
articles. Write your essay in your
own words. If you wish to mention
something you read in the article, introduce the statement with a reporting
signal and give the information using your own original sentence. For example:
Sharma (2011) says thatâ€¦â€¦.
How you write your essay is up
to you, but it must be based on your reflections of the readings and knowledge
of culture. I expect good essay writing
formâ€”an introduction, body paragraphs, and a conclusion.
On May 5th, your paper
is due. On May 5th, each one of you will
give a short presentation about your paper. What articles you used, and what your learned.
On May 6th you will give
a presentation about your essay
There should be
enough detail that the other students have a good idea of what you wrote about,
but you must consider how well theyâ€™ll be able to follow what you say and how
much time you have in your presentation. Donâ€™t get bogged down in
details. The presentation is expected to be close to 5-7 minutes long, and
This assignment is
worth up to 20% of your grade. Your score will be based on how well you
complete the requirements of the assignment as described above, how well you
write it, and the quality of your organization, introduction and
conclusion. Better essays are easy to follow and understand, and
demonstrate confidence and enthusiasm.
