1-2 pages typed minimum
This assignment will have you explore how communication researchers use theory and the variety of theories employed in the field.
Preparation: You will choose an article published in the past 5 years from a peer reviewed journal in the field of media or communication such as: Communication and Critical/ Cultural Studies, Critical Studies in Media Communication, Journal of Communication, Communication Theory, European Journal of Communication, Journal of Popular Film and Television, Cinema Journal, Media Culture & Society. If it is not one of these, please check with professor.
After you have chosen an article, you will develop a class presentation to achieve the following:
1. Convey in language other students clearly understand what the research is about and what are its conclusions.
2. Explain the theoretical context. In other words, does the article challenge or affirm previous theories? Does it present a new theory or theories?
3. Describe the theories from readings and class lectures that most clearly relate to the article.
Your presentations should find a balance between creativity and content. You may use a video clips (not more than 5 minutes total of video). Oral presentations with questions, some combination of these or something completely different (you may even use PowerPoint but avoid text heavy slides.) At the same time, content is crucial. A simple oral presentation without any extra media can be more effective than something fancy if it clearly conveys the necessary information using creative language.
You are not required to do outside reading and research, but most likely it will help you to better understand your article and convey some of the relevant ideas from it.
Time: Allowing for transitions, each group will have approximately 30 minutes. Make sure each group member has a significant speaking role, although it need not be equal. Avoid showing entire videos from YouTube. You can show short clips, but not more than 5 minutes total.

Written Report: Your written report will consist simply of your plans/ outline for the presentation and does not require you to discuss anything not covered in your presentation. The only requirement is that it be typed and is no longer than two pages. It will be turned in the day of your presentation along with a copy of the article you are presenting.
Addendum: At the end of your written report, attach a page that contains a statement from each participant regarding his or her contributions to the project. Were you in charge of facilitating meetings? Gathering background readings? Writing a script? etc. All statements must be on the same page!
Suggestions on Group Work: This assignment requires collaboration between four or more participants. Group work requires taking responsibility for yourself and understanding others in your group. Everybody has different skills, so try to make clear what your skills are (and maybe what you are not so good at). Designate one person as facilitator–a major responsibility–who will phone other members and email them to make sure everybody knows where and when to meet. Each person might take responsibility for a different aspect of the research. Hold yourself accountable and the other members of your group to accomplishing what you agreed to by a deadline, so you have plenty of time to rehearse. You will have time during class to work on project.
Criteria for Assessment:
* The presentation is clear and well organized.
* The presentation achieves the three objectives listed above.
* The presentation engages the class and gets students interested in the topic.
* Everybody in the group significantly contributes to the presentation.
