This week, your team’s task is to decide which ballot measure you are working on, to take a position, to research your position, and to formally announce your platform to the class.
Your campaign group will need to submit a written brief (properly formatted according to class requirements) to enter yourselves into the contest. This brief should include the following:
On Friday, 9/26, your group will stand before the class to present the information above. In addition, you must also report on initial findings from your Focus Group Research, so have at least three interviews completed by this point.
Prepare a handful of Keynote slides to support your presentation. If you have a Google account, utilize Google Docs. This feature allows you to share documents and slides, online. You also don’t need to worry about bringing a file to school since Google Docs are accessible on the Internet.
Every group member must speak during the oral presentation. Sketch out a script that addresses all the elements listed above, and divide it among you.
All the Metro standards for public speaking apply: face the audience with confident posture, prepare notes that allow you to maintain eye contact with your audience, do not read from your Keynote slide.
