Current Issues in Education

Project Directions:
I. Choose a current topic affecting the field of education. Suggestions are listed below, but other
topics are presented in your textbook. The topic you select must be approved by your instructor. If
you are unsure whether a topic is appropriate for this project, discuss it with your instructor. Each
student, or group (if your professor allows groups), must present a different topic.
 Alternative Teacher Preparation
 Anti-Bias Education
 Anti-Testing Movement
 Best Practices in Teaching and
 Bilingual Education
 Character Education

II. Gather sources and read about your topic. Select at least four different, credible sources. The
sources may include journal articles, books, textbooks, websites, or a personal interview with a
stakeholder (teacher, administrator, parent, student, etc.). However, no more than two of your
sources may be websites. If you find it helpful to use more than two websites, you may do so as
long as you include at least two additional sources, such as articles, books, etc. The HCC library
home page is a great place to begin your search. The librarians are most willing and ready to help.
You will need to cite the sources in your presentation using in-text citations, as well as listing the
sources on the reference slide.
III. Explain, examine, and illustrate the issue you selected. Clearly present four to six main points that
you discovered from your sources. In selecting main points, consider the following:
 What stood out to you most as you read about your issue?
 What would you like your audience to know about the issue?
 Are there any misconceptions regarding the issue that you might clarify?
 What are some of the opposing viewpoints related to the issue, if any?
 How will addressing the issue make a positive difference in education?
Make sure your thesis question or guiding statement is clearly addressed in your main points.
The main points should be written in your voice for the most part, rather than entirely quoted
portions. For each main point, include a few supporting details, such as facts, statistics, quotes,
examples, opposing viewpoints, or other information to illustrate your topic. If you use selected
quotes for some of your supporting details, clearly identify the material as quoted, and include a
citation. Clearly distinguish your main points from your supporting information. Include visual
images to support your points. Images may be photos, graphs, tables, figures, and/or illustrations.
Use the directions and rubric to guide your work in creating the slides.
IV. Include a “Call to Action” in your presentation. Think of how you might “challenge” your audience
to take steps toward addressing or solving the issue. The challenge could be presented as thoughtprovoking questions or suggestions (e.g., suggestions for parents of dropouts). Appeal to the
audience with your challenge(s).
V. Create a media presentation that summarizes the information you have gathered and examined.
Your media presentation may be a PowerPoint, Emaze, Google slides, or other slide-type
presentation. (Note: If you would like to consider another media format, speak to your instructor
for approval.) Follow the guidelines and tips below:
 Begin with a Title slide. Include the issue (topic), your name, course number, and semester.
 Present the information in a clear and logical sequence.
 Create at least 10 slides, but no more than 16 (including the title and reference slides).
 Clearly identify your thesis, or guiding question, early in the slide presentation.
 Sufficiently explain/present the issue in four to six main points, each with supporting details.
 Include facts, statistics, quotes, or other supporting details to highlight your main points.
 Avoid typing or placing too much text on each slide. “Less is often more.”
 Include visual images to support your points (see Part III above). For each image, cite the
source of the image directly on the slide it appears, as well as on the reference slide.
 Include a “Call to Action” for potential audience members (see Part IV above).
 Follow the recommendations in PowerPoint Dos and Don’ts (or other style resource your
instructor may provide) for font style, color, and size, amount of text on each slide,
background, color palette, and animation.
 End with a Reference slide that includes all of your sources, including image sources,
formatted in APA style.
 Reminder: Use both the directions and rubric to guide your work.
