Learning Goal: I’m working on a other presentation and need a sample draft to help me learn.
Pick a topic you are passionate about from the list provided below, related to occupation
Create the message you want to convey to others regarding this topic. Here are a few examples I have generated to demonstrate what I mean by ‘the message’:
- how important it is to incorporate self-care in everything you do
- why it is important to critically examine your assumptions regarding individuals or groups that are dissimilar to yourself
- ways that we can tackle the stigma of mental health and be more supportive
- how gender and sexuality differ and why this is important to understand
3 Build a script that provides the context and/or description of what is currently happening, regarding your topic and message, and what you feel (strongly) needs to change. What does this new change/vision bring to society? What evidence can you cite/share that gives your argument credibility? How will society benefit from your ‘new way of being’ (e.g., open-minded, accepting) or ‘becoming’ (e.g., an ally, an advocate, a listener)?
4 Videotape yourself (or have someone be camera-operator), as Rick Mercer does, monologuing your thoughts and/or script as if you are speaking to a group of people who are unaware, apathetic, naïve, or doubters of your topic and/or message.
- Possible Topics:
- A topic of your choosing that you feel passionate about, approved by the course instructor
