Grading criteria for individual sections:
(Grading criteria for poster, sim-history, and videographers are different and will be posted later)
Please NOTE: You should be writing/presenting about your culture *as of the year 1450*. This will take considerable effort to do well.
Each student will be required to write a 500 word report and give an engaging 10 minute presentation on one particular aspect of the culture, with particular attention to how it is integrated with other aspects of their culture. Each student will do a different aspect of the culture so that when they are all put together it will form a full ethnography of the culture. As a group you need to make sure that all aspects are covered.
You will be responsible for the section you sign up for. Your paper & presentation should include 2 elements.
1. Thorough description of the aspect of culture to be described (multiple paragraphs).
2. One final paragraph briefly describing how the aspect you have described is integrated with other aspects of the culture.
At the end of class, your classmates will grade your presentation.
I'll use student grades & comments along with my assessment of the written report to assign the final grade.
The assignment is worth 100 points (10% of your final grade) and will be carefully graded with the following criteria:
40 points Research. Your description should be thorough and accurate. You should demonstrate that you have read some quality books and articles on the subject (not just Wikipedia). Make sure you cite your sources and make a list of your sources at the end of the report.
20 points Integration of culture. You need to demonstrate that you understand how the aspect of culture you are describing is integrated with other aspects of culture. For example, if you are writing about the economic system of India, you should be able to
20 points Creativity and Insight. This is the something extra you add by thinkingabout the material in-depth and tapping into your own creativity.
20 points Quality. Your contribution should be well-written and well-presented. If you have troubles with writing I highly encourage you to use the Writing Center
(English/Counseling Services Room 122D). It is one of the best and must underused resources at KSU. For more info go to: http://www.ksu.edu/english/writingcenter/
