News, and news sources, are critical to the way we see the world. How do we determine if a news source is credible and the information is both thorough and accurate? This assignment challenges students to compare online articles about the same criminal justice-related or ethics-related issue from sources that fall into loosely “liberal” and “conservative” websites and which show distinct differences in coverage. The assignment combines digital literacy (finding and identifying articles on the same topic from two discrete sources) and critical thinking (analysis of the impact that biased information may have on readers).
This WAS a two-part assignment – it is now ONE.
The assignment had an initial, ungraded, component (the “outline”) which required students to submit, via the appropriate iCollege Dropbox, copies of the chosen articles together with a brief bullet-point outline identifying a minimum of three-points of comparison where the articles report essentially the same information, and a minimum of three-points of comparison where the articles report substantially different information. The outline was reviewed to ensure that the sources are appropriate (e.g. Wikipedia is never appropriate) and that the student is on track for the final, graded component. The outline was a required element of the assignment, and failure to timely submit it resulted in a grade of zero for the entire assignment.
The final version – NOW THE ONLY SUBMISSION - of this assignment is an expansion of the directions outlined above. You will NOT submit an outline. INSTEAD, in a narrative format, the student should briefly explain the subject of the articles, the areas of commonality, and the substantive differences in their coverage. The student should then address the impact that reading only one of the two articles might have on the average reader. Will the reader be fully knowledgeable about the issue? Finally, students should blend the information between the two articles into a complete and true explanation of the issue presented such that the reader is well and thoroughly informed.
Students should ensure that copies of the two comparative news articles are included as part of the assignment, and not as attachments to a separate document. The easiest way to do this may be to combine the narrative and two sources into a single PDF file as opposed to a Microsoft Word file. Either format is acceptable, but only one file containing the analysis and the two sources articles should be uploaded to the appropriate Dropbox submission portal by the assignment deadline.
Maximum length of the narrative version, not including the chosen articles, is two (2) pages.
To reiterate, the outline is NO LONGER REQUIRED. The narrative version must be submitted via the iCollege Assignments Dropboxes (found under Assessments, then Assignments) on or before the dates noted in the schedule at the end of this syllabus. Papers turned in after the noted time will not be accepted and no credit will be given. A grading rubric for the assignment is located in iCollege.

Some interview situations call for behavioral based interviewing and so the use of the STAR method is useful for preparing you (as an interviewee) for questions you might encounter. Your answers to interview questions are more substantive and thorough. Saying too little during an interview is a recipe for disaster when you don't say enough, and/or if there is a lot of awkward silence. STAR stands for:

Situation
Task
Action
Results
Behavioral questions are usually prefaced by “tell me about a time when” or “give me a situation where.” Behavior-based interviews focus on critical dimensions of the job you will be doing; a critical dimension refers to specific skills. I have completed a sample for you to show what I would like to see for your answers:


SITUATION I was chair of the 3rd Annual Social Science Graduate Research Symposium    
TASK I arranged speakers into panels with similar themes; finalized arrangements within meeting rooms; contacted catering, facilities management, and panelists; managed registration; and contacted the bookstore to request giveaway
ACTION    I emailed speakers with the final schedule; met with the supervisor of Facilities Management the day before the symposium; met with Sodexho a few days before the symposium; delegated registration responsibilities to my committee; and met with the manager of 3 local bookstores    
RESULTS I successfully chaired the symposium without any major setback

In addition, I recommend that you have about 10 stories about yourself that you know well and can easily tell. Since most interviews only have about 10 questions, having 10 stories about yourself prepares you for things you can say about yourself. Be sure to include 2-3 negative experiences that you can talk about, where you can also say things like "I learned a valuable lesson about,"  "I would do differently in hindsight," "Looking back, I would have handled this by," or "This experience was meaningful to me because."

Example short stories I might tell include:

Story about why I love teaching
Story about my first teaching experience
How I handled a difficult situation with ____ student
Organizing a conference
Working on ____ committee on campus


SUBMIT
Part I: List 8-10 short story topics that you can draw upon during an interview.

Part II: Write the answers down to the following questions using the STAR format:

What are two or three of your mot valuable strengths?

What are two or three of your biggest weaknesses?

Tell me about a time when you used effective communication to resolve a problem with a customer or teammate

Tell me about a time when you had to make necessary adaptations to another person or persons from a different cultural background. What did you do and what were the results?

Sometimes we are unable to complete a task or project on time; tell me about a time when you were unable to meet a deadlin

The purpose of a demonstration speech is to help people understand how to do something and reach audience members who are “watchers” and “doers” (Verderber, Sellnow & Verderber, 2018).  YouTube is full of “how to” videos that may deem helpful in your understanding how to show a process.  Also, TV shows such as HGTV and Food Network are based on folks showing us how, not just telling us (informative).  Below are links to videos of examples of people demonstrating how to open a jar and how to plant flowers.

“How To Open A Jar” by Rachel Ray (2:07 minutes in length)
"How to Plant Flowers" by Howcast.com (3:01 minutes in length)
During this session, you will be creating a demonstration speech on a topic of your choice. Below is an overview of the required components of this Demonstration Speech assignment. More details on each component along with the submission links are included in this folder.

Topic Selection

First, you will need to select the topic of your demonstration speech. The topic should be something that interests both you and your audience, personally or professionally.

Outline

Next you will create an outline of your speech.

The outline should be comprehensive in all areas to include APA format in-text citation of sources where applied and a complete references list at the bottom. 

Presentation

You will deliver an eight to ten (8 - 10) minute demonstration speech. You will use unique visual(s) throughout your speech.  For example, if you are demonstrating how to make a seven-layer dip, you will actually use the supplies and ingredients while you are speaking to show your audience how to make seven-layer dip.
