ICR Class 11: Cycle 4 research on global issues: Possible actions & solutions

Summary: You discussed in pairs the possible actions and solutions to your issue. Then, we discussed ways to prepare for your Cycle 4 presentations on December 18th or December 25th. Finally, you reflected on the three questions in your Google Doc. 

I would like to remind everyone that you need an introduction, conclusion, references, and in-text citations on each slide so you can say where you got your work from. Also, I email your presentation back to you with corrections and feedback.

Please do not use your old draft PowerPoints while presenting. Please download my attachment with feedback because as I am trying to help you improve your presentations!

Cycle 4 Presentations on 012/18/2022: (Order Decided in class on 12/11/2023)

Cycle Presentations on 12/1252022 (Order decided in class on 12/11/2023):

Presentation Content and Design for presenting on Zoom:

Stratvert, K. (2020, July 24). How to properly present PowerPoint slides in Zoom [Video]. Youtube.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNOZRa089-U

I recommend before you start to create your slideshow restate your five research questions based the five sections below and then catagorize your notes based on your references:

  1. Basic Information
  2. Causes
  3. Cases or Further Examples
  4. Effects
  5. Solutions

Summary: Guidelines for your Presentation in addition to the information in the presentation of your issue document:


1. Your talk should be about 7-8 minutes and then 2-3 minutes for questions, comments, and answers.

2. It is good to practice your presentation several times (even recorded on ZOOM) so you can focus with your timing and gain confidence. 

3. There are usually 12 to 16 slides.

4. You’ll have a References or Works Cited page to show where you got your work from. Please include the author’s name, date published, the organization or publisher, and the URL link.

5. In the slideshow, please write and say where you got the information from in the form of in-text citations for APA such as (Miller, 2020, para. 3). You can also do narrative in-text citations such as Suzuki (2020, p. 5) suggested that… If you use the author’s exact words, you need to use “quotation marks,” but you do not need quotes if you summarize the keywords. For MLA it would be Suzuki (5) or (Miller par. 3).

6. Here are three free websites where you can download free and beautiful images and pictures:
