April 11

In the next two days, submit your paper to the College Board. Directions are here.

VERY IMPORTANT: WHEN YOU FILL OUT YOUR AP BUBBLE SHEETS, SAVE YOUR AP NUMBER SO YOU CAN ENTER THAT IN THE CAPSTONE SITE.

This week, prepare your 6-8 minute presentation. I will give you a handout today. Also, review often what the rubric is looking for:

  • The presentation uses minimal (or no) notes or written script to effectively convey the material. The presentation establishes connections between the spoken and the visual.
  • Effective techniques of media design enhance the oral presentation.
  • Communication strategies (e.g., eye contact, vocal variety & energy, expressive gestures, movement), coupled with an effective execution of those strategies, strongly support the communication of the argument.
  • Spoken and visual cues clearly convey the organization of the presentation.
  • The presentation identifies the argument and clearly situates the student’s research within the larger context
  • The presentation makes a cohesive argument, showing in detail how the evidence supports the claims. The presentation analyzes information and evidence gathered from sources and explains in detail why the evidence supports the argument.
  • The presentation incorporates synthesizes and interprets evidence from various perspectives and correctly cites sources (orally or visually) including at least one provided source and outside source material to develop and support the argument.
  • The argument presents resolutions, conclusions, and/or solutions that are unambiguously linked to evidence and fully address the research question.

Presentations will begin on April 18
