Project #75422 - Intro to Forestry

Research Project

You have learned a great deal about forests, forest ecosystems, uses of forests, forest conservation, etc. in this class!  Now it's time to show what you know.  yes

For this Final Project assignment, you are to do research on a topic covered in class and create a PowerPoint presentation or a Prezi that you upload and submit right here under Assignments.  Your online research should utilize academic (i.e. APUS library) and other resources to create a 15-20 slide presentation. The project must include: a cover or title slide, an outline/introduction slide, a summary/conclusion slide, and references slide(s); therefore, there must be at least 11 slides worth of project content plus the title, outline, conclusion and references slides.

 

Choose a Forestry topic covered in this class that particularly interested you. You don't need approval for your topics, but choose something that you'll put a lot of effort into.

Use Internet articles, journals, text books, etc. as sources of information for your project. You must have at least 6 reliable, relevant and academic references - three of which should be 'solid' scholarly references.   Students should utilize the APUS Online Library for their research as our Online Library offers a large variety of reliable and pertinent research sources. The Online Library can be accessed by clicking on the “Library” link on the menu bar to the left inside the electronic classroom.

 

Prepare a PowerPoint or Prezi presentation of your chosen topic. Research your topic thoroughly. Include photos/graphics and visual appeal. USE THE SCORING RUBRIC BELOW - that is exactly how I grade this assignment.

Your presentation must be in a readable/viewable format and may not exceed the APUS size limit for uploads (so be careful adding too many large images or animations). 

USE YOUR OWN WORDS and cite your sources for all material used in your project, including photos and graphics.

If you have any questions about these instructions, please Message me before submitting your work.

Have fun and I look forward to seeing what you've learned in class!
