For M3 Assignment, you will prepare a PowerPoint presentation that focuses on a different culture that you would like to learn to communicate with effectively. At a minimum, the presentation should include the following elements:
Overview of the culture.
Key characteristics and dimensions of the culture that should be learned before communication begins (include at least six dimensions).
Compare and contrast the culture with your culture (based on the dimensions you included in #2).
Create a culture communication plan specifically for your chosen culture that will help you and your workplace to conduct effective communication. This culture communication plan should include an outline or brief discussion of the three or four components you have found most critical.
Provide a summary and recommendations for your organization to move forward with training for cultural communication.
Your presentation should be a minimum of 15 content slides (not including the title slide and references slide). Your slides should include either speaker notes placed in the “notes” section of the slide or you should record audio on each slide. In addition, you should have a minimum of three scholarly sources. References should be written in proper APA formatting.
The Notes panel of your slides will contain your speech script; this will be word-for-word exactly what you would say to accompany each slide. Be sure to read your speech aloud several times so that you’re confident that the language you’re using sounds conversational and not like a term paper or essay. Remember to use transitional words and phrases to make your speech flow smoothly.
It’s critical to cite the sources that support your points and subpoints. Citing sources orally (as you would be doing for a speech) is different from citing them in a paper. For a refresher on how to do this, see Citing Sources Orally in the Announcements area in this course.
When you are ready to submit your slides and script, you must save your slides in a format with the slides on the top of a page, with the accompanying notes (your script) beneath each slide, as seen below.
Do not submit a PowerPoint file. Instead, print your notes pages to PDF, or export your presentation to Word, and choose the layout with “notes below slides.” I must be able to see both your slide and script on the same page; if not, your speech will be returned with a zero for a grade, and you will have one opportunity to revise.
If you are using Microsoft PowerPoint, see the article Add speaker notes to your slides and for how to do this using Google Slides, see https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/
