Description

Throughout this course you will have several assignments that will center on a Latin American country of your choice. Each student will pick one country and complete each assignment based on that choice.

You will create a PowerPoint presentation (including notes) profiling the country of your choice. In this profile you will work on at least 3 issues dealing with the country in terms of economic, political, social and cultural aspects of the country you choose. You need to have at minimum of two sources for each section of the presentation and at least 4 slides per section. You also need to include notes for each slide (a minimum of 250 words per section – detailing more information that could not be included on the slide. To access the notes you cannot be in the slide show, it is at the bottom of the slide and you probably will need to maximize that section so you can see it). The notes need to be cited in Chicago/Turabian footnotes and you MUST have a reference list at the end of the presentation as well You will also need an cover slide, introduction slide, conclusion slide, and a reference page slide. So you will be required to have a minimum of 16 slides. Be as creative as you wish. This is a fun project that allows you to show your creative side. Please see the sample slide attached for an example of needed). Please review the project I have attached if you are not sure about how to do the notes. Again, you cannot see the notes in slide show mode.
