IDS 404 SNHU Good Bones Show

The topic for this milestone a show Good Bones, this is the only topic that can be used. I have included my last couple of papers on this subject to help with the power point. It also says that you need to speaker notes at bottom of slides and the transfer them to a work document to be able to turn them in.

For this third milestone, you will reflect on content that will inform your multimedia presentation, which you will include in Final Project Part Two. You will reflect on the mediated nature of popular culture and its impact on one’s individual framework of perception, one’s discipline of study, and society in general. This milestone will be submitted as a presentation draft that includes speaker’s notes. Please note that for this milestone assignment, audio narration is not required.

To complete this assignment, review the Milestone Three Guidelines and Rubric PDF document.

This is what my professor said to do with my power point.

Clicking on the rubric guidelines:

You are presented with an Overview, a Prompt, instructions for the Multimedia Presentation, Power Point instructions, and then Guidelines for Submission. Every one of these sections has bits and clues as to what this assignment is, and how best to succeed in it.

Please read the rubric as part of this description, because most of this won’t make sense if you haven’t also looked at the rubric guidelines.

  • What are we doing?
  • The Overview and Prompt say:

    “Create a presentation draft (PowerPoint with speaker notes) that analyzes the artifact under study (the one you selected in Module Two).”

    And then…

    “Milestone Three should be approximately 10 to 12 slides. You are required to include a combination of text and visuals in order to support your work.”

    This is describing the basic assignment. A Powerpoint presentation of 10 to 12 slides, about your artifact.

    ** This current powerpoint will be a draft of your final project powerpoint. So pay attention to the rubric’s actual requests. You will visit this same configuration again.

  • What Exactly Should We Put In Our Slides?
  • Luckily, you have been given a five part outline with specifications to help define what exactly is wanted for this presentation.

    If you read through the outline and follow each question, you will address all of the points needed to get an A on this assignment.

  • First, The most important part of this outline comes in section 5.
  • Section 5 is actually the foundational parameters of the Presentation.

    This is where it says things like:

    • “Throughout your presentation, you will be assessed on your ability to use effective communication skills to deliver your message to your audience.” Note the part where it says, “you will be assessed.” This suggests that the numbered items below this sentence will define how the presentation will be judged.

    • “Construct your presentation in a way that ensures the audio and visual elements are logically organized in order to convey your message to your audience.” In other words, you are telling us a story. Make sure that even though you have all these different sections and questions to answer, that it makes sense as an actual presentation.

    • “Provide supporting evidence in your presentation that supports the importance of the critical analysis of popular culture and the impact of your artifact.” This part just means, be smart about all the stuff you write, and use research, then make a slide with the cited sources at the end.

    • “Develop the audio narration to logically flow with the presentation to articulate the importance of critically analyzing popular culture and the impact of your artifact.” This is saying, create an audio presentation that goes with your slides. If for some reason you have issues with recording, you can also simply attach a speaker note script with the slides, designating what you would say at each point.

    SO, now you know that you need to make sure your presentation is good, makes sense, and looks pretty.

  • Second, What content goes into the presentation?
  • This is answered in the three initial sections of the outline, 1, 2 and 3: Artifact, Yourself, and Society. These outlined sections are, the segments of your presentation.

  • Artifact:
  • 1. “Using appropriate research strategies, describe the relationship between your artifact and popular culture. What is the origin of your artifact? ” Why is the thing you are writing about popular culture? What makes you think that it fits into the human conversation that is called popular culture? Where does your artifact come from?

    2. “Using appropriate research strategies, describe the impact of your artifact on society… consider who is impacted by the artifact and what is important to know about the attitudes, behaviors, and choices of those who are impacted.” Where is your artifact situated in society and culture. Whose into it, why are they into it, how do they engage with it, what kind of cultural conversation happens around your artifact? Has it effected other conversations that came after it?

    3. “Using relevant research or diverse perspectives, assess how society impacts your artifact.” How has society helped to make this thing you are writing about? What situation made this thing come into being? What kind of social biases are consciously or unconsciously embedded into your artifact?

  • Yourself:
  • 1. “How has critically analyzing your popular culture artifact informed your individual framework of perception? Consider how it has altered the way you perceive the world.” Why do I like it? And how has researching it informed me to look at my artifact with a ‘critical’ eye?

    2. “How can critically analyzing popular culture influence your field of study or profession? How can popular culture inform your understanding of the next big topic of study in your field or profession in the next five to ten years?” How does understanding the way popular culture works, and creates a feedback loop with society, impact the things you do in the larger world? Can you see the way that social trends influence the economy, the work place, and your specific job?

  • Society:
  • 1. “How does critically analyzing popular culture add value to how you interact with people and popular culture artifacts? Supplement your reasoning with examples.” This is the beginning of thinking about analysis. Why do we analyze popular culture?

    2. “Recommend strategies for using this kind of critical analysis for meeting your personal and professional goals. What might this look like in your everyday life? Consider how popular culture can be used to address the day-to-day responsibilities or questions faced by practitioners in your field or discipline.” Sometimes people work in a field where these questions would make sense. If you are a graphic designer, this sort of thing is pretty straight forward. But some people have jobs as accountants, or engineering foreman. In these cases popular culture feels a couple layers removed.

    In the case where it is not connected to your actual work, you might shift “popular culture” here, and rather think in your mind, “critical analysis tools you learn in this class of how popular culture works within society” and maybe add, “the perspective critical analysis of culture provides” in general. In other words, the analytic awareness you have gotten from seeing into your chosen cultural artifacts. The awareness that comes from knowing that cultural items are constructions of our society’s conversation with bias, rather than just items that magically appeared as truth.

  • Conclusion:
  • 1. “Using relevant research or diverse perspectives, assess the benefits and challenges of addressing issues in popular culture.” This is a meta question. It is asking you to think about the analysis of popular culture. It’s asking why you would want to look at popular culture using critical thinking skills, and what makes it hard.

    2. “Explain how critically analyzing popular culture adds value to interactions with people in personal and professional contexts.” Does this help people talk to each other? Why, and what does that look like?

    ** Keep in mind, this is a presentation about your chosen artifact. As you make your points, keep coming back to your artifact to illustrate your points. Even if your points are about yourself and more abstract thought, illustrate how your artifact helps you see through to those ideas.

    For example: “The film Gross Pointe Blank, helps me to feel the disconnection and isolation of my high school memories, I was able to attend this film rather than return for my 10 year high school reunion, and I felt a catharsis, and understood that this was a generational experience, as there was literally a film made that year that expressed exactly the level of violent discomfort I felt about my own home town. I have been able to communicate this sense of discomfort with many people my own age by invoking this film. We have shared a common awareness of what it was like to grow up as Generation X.”

    Please notice that the rubric asks that you submit your speaker notes in a separate word document, so that they can be checked in Turnitin.

    I hope this breakdown helps you with your Milestones this week. Please continue to ask any questions you’ve got.
