This assignment is an individual assignment that will start you on the road to completing your Week 7 PowerPoint presentation.
Although the lesson for this week already addressed this information, for ease of assignment completion, here it is again.

Link: Example Submission
Use this example to guide your submission for this assignment.
Choose a topic: #3 Public Speaking
Narrow the topic to identify a specific purpose: Managing anxiety when public speaking
Develop a one-sentence thesis: There are three important steps to take in order to manage anxiety when doing a presentation.
Establish your main points for the PowerPoint:
Main Point #1: Visualize doing the presentation well
Main Point #2: Take a deep breath before you begin
Main Point #3: Focus on the information rather than the performance
Three sources (Include the titles of three potential sources here.)
With the above example, the topic was narrowed to managing anxiety. This topic could have also been narrowed to eliminating “um’s”, presenting while using a visual aid, etc. There are many different ways in which you can make the topic of your choice more specific to your interests.
Now it is your turn. In order to write an effective thesis, you will need to do your research. Find a minimum of three scholarly sources that you plan to use to inform your teaching. Use the template for Assignment 2 to guide your organization of this information. You will receive feedback concerning your topic choice, thesis, organization, and sources in the grading process.
At the end of your submission, add a reflection paragraph addressing your consideration of a cross-cultural topic and why or why not this topic what chosen. What is about cross-cultural communication that interests you, concerns you, or creates a barrier for you.
Note: Any topic you chose is fine, but this is a chance to reflect on the added component of cross-cultural communication.
