I’m stuck on a Writing question and need an explanation.
Initial post: Then, by Thursday of Module 8,create a 3-minute video clip (and a text transcript) that addresses the following:
- Convince the audience of your thesis argument for your final project through an “elevator pitch”. To do this you’ll need to introduce your topic and thesis statement, then articulate the main arguments and evidence in support of it and refute opposing arguments in a way that non-experts can understand. (Your answer to this question should refer to evidence from at least two of your sources. Please cite those sources at the bottom of your discussion post in the text)
- Then, reflect on the research process in this course – what was the most important thing you learned through the last 7 weeks of research and writing and how do you plan to apply it in your future coursework and beyond?
**NOTE: You will need to include a transcript or closed captions with your video in order to make it accessible for people with hearing disabilities. The easiest way to do this is to write out a script in advance and attach this to your post as a transcript. Use the Audio Script Writing Guide for help creating a script.
**NOTE: Read the resources below for help with creating your video (or if a video is not possible an audio file)
You will not be able to see posts written by your classmates until you create your initial post.
Replies: Then, from Friday through Sunday of Module 8, reply to your classmates’ videos with text replies. Comment on their elevator pitch and self-reflection. Comment on specific aspects of your peers’ oral communication skills – what did they do well? How did they communicate their points effectively? How have they improved since Module 6?
- This discussion will be graded according to the Cornerstone Oral Discussion Rubric. Review the rubric and Discussion Board Expectations in advance to know how you will be assessed.
