Read about the Final Project, “Inclusive Voices,” Instructions
to show how a not-so-well-known person or movements’ emergent truth pushes back against dominant cultures’ non-inclusive or discriminatory narrative through using their voice and actions to disrupt, and create positive change.
1. Conduct research and write an APA formatted Research Essay using 3-5 sources
2. Then from the content of the Research Essay create your Final Presentation. Your Final Presentation, “Inclusive Voices,” will teach your reader/viewer what you discovered from conducting your research through a recorded poster presentation, video presentation, or voice-narrated PowerPoint presentation.
3. Create a Script that you will use to present your Final Presentation
Ultimately, you will use the questions below to write your paper and drive the content and organization of your presentation. Completing your research should be organized in the following way and answer the following questions about your person/movement:
The introduction should briefly introduce and state the issue to be examined. It should start with creative, attention-getting hook then state why you chose the person/movement, show how you will critically evaluate the person or movement you chose, and provide a clear thesis statement.
The body of your paper contains information that explains who the person/movement is, what they did, and then provides a status update. The sub-headers used in APA formatting provide your divisions.
(Sub-header:) Who are/were they?
This sections answers the question who are they? This defines them and their power and limitations in the culture of the time. This section provides any historical information that is relevant about them personally.
(Sub-header:) What was happening in culture of the time?
Here you will give some perspective about events and attitudes of the time and what happened that allowed a space for their voice. What was going on in dominant culture at the time that allowed for their entry point into the cultural narrative?
(Sub-header:) What did they do?
This section should specifically explain what was their action that disrupted dominant culture.
(Sub-header:) Where are they now?
Here you will explain what happened as a result of their action or voice. What is the trajectory or lasting effects?; provide a status update about them or their movement.
The conclusion of the paper should cover the three major parts.
· Answer: the thesis statement, revisited.
· Summary: main points and highlights from the body paragraphs.
· Significance: the relevance and implications of the essay’s findings and what further actions could still be taken.
