SOC352 Presentation Guidelines 2023
SOC352 Autumn 2022
This assessment task requires you to develop a PowerPoint presentation addressing the question: what is your understanding of ‘power’? The fact that this question begins with asking what you understand about some ‘thing’ in this case ‘power’ means that it requires you to develop a ‘reflection’.
Reflective writing starts with YOU … it is a form of ‘subjective’ writing.
YOU need to begin by thinking about your own experience and knowledge of the question.
Most importantly, remember that YOU bring knowledge to addressing the question, so consider carefully what this knowledge might represent and how you might express it?
In this context, put yourself in a position so you are able to make a link between what you know and what you have learnt and what you don’t know or believe the ‘material’ cannot explain. Do not go beyond the material presented that is, lecture summaries, lecture recording and textbook.
The task for you then is to recognise that what we are learning in SOC352 builds in some way on your prior knowledge. Look for these connections!
Everyone’s prior knowledge based on their own experiences will be different, so think of what you found confusing, inspiring, challenging, fascinating in the material so far and then consider, why this is so?
Most importantly, there is no right or wrong answer to the question. You will be assessed on the quality of your ability to bring into synthesis your experiences and current knowledge with the material as well as your ability to articulate that clearly and reflectively.
What you need to do:
You will need to develop a ‘presentation’ but you will not be required to actually deliver it in class (virtually or in person). Instead, the presentation will consist of slides (no more than 5 and using the Notes section at the bottom of each slide) you will write up a short ‘script’ for each slide (of no more than 100 words of narrative so please don’t use dot points. The script will reflect what you would say if you were speaking to the class.
Also, it is important to note that other than not presenting it in class all other requirements as per the Assessment Criteria (see below) still stand true. I would also add that each slide should be aesthetically engaging and in a way that showcases the key points of reflection in your narrative script.
The only research you need to do for this assessment is to draw from the lecture material and the text. Please do not go beyond these materials as a key objective of the assessment exercise is to show via reflection that you not only understand the topic but can identify what you think are the most important features so far and articulate them through your own experience/s. Remember you have 5 slides to work with and therefore you cannot cover everything in lectures 1 and 3 so you must choose the features you think are important and then incorporate them into your reflection.
Develop 5 PowerPoint slides. In doing so, there is no need for a title slide or a slide at the end that lists references.
Then in the Notes section available at the bottom of each slide you will offer 100 words of script about each slide. Basically, it is what you would have said. Use only the Notes facility in PowerPoint for your script write up of each slide [Do Not Use Word etc.] . Then you can save the PowerPoint as a file for uploading to Moodle.
Upload your completed PowerPoint via the dedicated Moodle link (this will be available early in Week 5) in the Administration section.
You will submit your work no later than 4pm on Friday 31st April, Week 5.
The assessment is worth 30% of your overall mark.
You will receive a mark out of 100 for the PowerPoint presentation as a complete package (slides and script). You will be assessed based on:
1. Meeting the slide number and word count.
2. Clarity of the presentation
3. Ability to ‘reflect’ on knowledge of the topic area
4. Ability to relate key concepts/theories of the topic area to your own experiences within contemporary society
Political Sociology exists at the intersection created by the relationship between political society and civil society and the influence upon that relationship of the economy.
The most important consequence of this intersectionality, is the creation, maintenance as well as, the potential demise of ‘authority’.
