Creed, Christianity, and World Religions Primal Religions Presentation
Each group is to prepare a presentation approximately 20 minutes
in length which covers at least the basic information on the chose topic.
Each member of the group should participate full in the preparation and presentation. If there is any problem with group cooperation, see me immediately; do not wait until the day the presentation is due.
Your presentation should be made to the class from memory or from note cards in your own words. quote relevant material with its source(s); do not read lengthy passages from articles.
We will spend one week in the library so that you can work on the research and on some of the presentation. Use the time wisely. I will be giving points for participation on library days. the more you accomplish in the library, the less time you will have to spend on homework.
Components of the presentation
1) Outline of the group presentation - 50 points - due 8 February at the end of the period - one outline per group - make it as detailed as you can - I realize that last-minute changes can happen, but this should be very close to your final version
2) list of Works Consulted - 50 points - due in class on the day of your presentation - one list per group - required: at least three Internet sources and three hard copy sources aside from any encyclopedia articles used - use proper form, as in _Writers Inc._ and the style sheet for citing Internet sources available in the library
