Assignment 2: The Outline

Objective: Organize your thoughts and the main points of your research for your final presentation

Assignment Instructions: To help you complete Assignment 3: The Presentation, you will first submit an outline to organize your thoughts and main points. Your outline should be formatted a specific way and must contain the following elements as described below.

To prepare for this assignment, I recommend that you do the following:

  • Read these directions carefully.
  • Review the sample outline provided to you below.
  • Read the grading criteria below. The grading criteria is a detailed evaluation that I will use to assess your performance. It also will help you understand what is expected of you as you prepare your assignment.
  • Message me with any questions!

Be sure to add your name and course number to your outline.

The outline format: Your outline must be formatted as described and exemplified in the example attached. Please note that this format will be assessed in your grade:

  • Use an alphanumeric sequence
  • Sections should be indented and aligned
  • Follow the suggested order of the required elements
  • Use brief but detailed and descriptive phrases.

The required elements: Your outline should contain the following elements in the following order (keep in mind that your presentation, Assignment #3, should be 10-15 slides, so you need to be concise and clear with your information – some information researched will be written on your slides but most will be narrated in the audio portion of your presentation):

I. Introduction Section – this section must contain the following:

A.Topic selection and reason for selecting

B. Thoroughly define the disease/condition

C. History of the disease/condition

II. Content Sections – this section must contain the following four main topics (the subtopics are recommendations to use if appropriate to your disease/condition):

A. Statistics/Epidemiology:

1. Statistical prevalence (e.g. overall, gender, age)

2. Types of distributions (e.g. frequencies, patterns)

3. Types of determinants (e.g. causes, risk factors)

B. Financial Costs:

1. Costs to the individual/family

2. Possible costs to society

3. Loss of productivity

C. Anatomy & Physiology/Etiology:

1. The normal and abnormal structure & function behind the disease/condition

2. Cause(s) of the disease/condition

D. Diagnosis/Treatments/Prognosis:

1. How this disease/condition is diagnosed (e.g. history, exam, diagnostic imaging, labs)

2. How the condition/disease is treated (e.g. traditional medical treatments, alternative methods of treatment)

3. The prediction of this disease/condition’s outcome (i.e., prognosis)

III. Conclusion Section – this section must contain four to six sentences that sum up the main topics of the outline.

IV. Reference Section – This is not just the reference page; rather, referencing should occur throughout the outline as it will in your presentation. Therefore, your outline should include both a separate reference page containing a minimum of five sources listed in proper APA reference list format AND internal citations throughout the outline where appropriate. Please be sure to see the resources below for assistance regarding in-text citations and reference list formatting, and/or ask me if you have any additional questions.

Please make note of the following tips and tricks:

  • We understand that this is a rough draft and, as your research and writing continue over the next few weeks, details may be added or changed. Although you do not have to resubmit it to me, I recommend that you update this outline to help you best complete Assignments 3.
  • Write your outline so that it has detailed bullets that you can easily then flesh out into sentences for the narration of your presentation (Assignment 3).
  • After your outline is complete, I recommend that you next draft your introductory and conclusion sections for your outline. This will ensure that all the main points of the outline are incorporated in these two framing sections of your final presentation.
  • Please note that less than 10% of your outline or presentation (Assignment 3) should contain direct quotes.
  • All internal citation references should be listed on the reference page, and vice versa.

Assignment 3: The Presentation

Objective: Develop an audio-narrated PowerPoint presentation based on the research you have conducted about your chosen medical condition or disease

Assignment Instructions: Using the course project steps completed to date, you will develop your presentation based on the work you submitted for Assignments 1 and 2 as well as the feedback you were given.

To prepare for this assignment, I recommend that you do the following:

  • Read these directions carefully.
  • Review the presentation grading rubric below. The grading rubric is a detailed evaluation that I will use to assess your performance. It also will help you understand what is expected of you as you prepare your assignment.
  • Message me with any questions!

Presentation requirements:

  • Your presentation will be submitted as an audio-narrated PowerPoint, narrated by you, the student. You cannot use “text-to-speech” programs or technology that do the narration for you unless noted as an approved accommodation in a current DSA letter you have furnished to me. For instructions on how to create audio narration in PowerPoint, see the following link: Record a Slide Show With Narration. Audio narration is a requirement!
  • There must be a visual element (e.g., photos, videos, graphs, figures).
  • Your presentation must contain approximately 10-15 slides (excluding references) and run approximately 5-10 minutes.
  • Please note that less than 10% of your presentation should contain direct quotes.
  • Proper use and pronunciation of scientific terminology are required. For help with pronunciation, see this link: Meriam-Webster Medical Dictionary
  • Be sure to properly cite your work, both internal to the presentation as well as within the reference slide (this includes photos, graphs, figures, videos, etc.).
  • All references listed on the reference slide should be cited internally within the presentation, and vice versa.
  • You will submit this presentation to your classmates to review and discuss as a part of the Week Eight Forum.

The required elements: Your presentation should contain the following elements in the order listed below.

In addition, I expect that any feedback provided to you from Assignment 1: Annotated Bibliography and Assignment 2: The Outline be incorporated into this assignment. Please go back and review those comments.

III. Conclusion Slide – this section must contain four to six points that sum up the main topics of the presentation.

IV. Reference Slide(s) and Internal Citations – this section must contain the following:

Internal citations – This is not just a separate section; rather, referencing should occur throughout the presentation via parenthetical citations anytime you paraphrase, make direct quotes, or use visual components from other sources. Please be sure to cite any language, images, videos, etc. in the presentation that should be cited.

B. Reference Slide – Your paper should also have a final reference slide listing 5-10 credible sources researched for your presentation. NOTE: This section is not included in the slide count for your presentation.
