IDS 404 Milestone Three Guidelines and Rubric Popular Culture, You, and Society

Overview: For the second part of your final project, you will develop a multimedia presentation in which you will have a chance to reflect on what you have learned about your artifact, yourself, and society through analyzing its impact on popular culture through the four general education lenses. You will also be able to apply your communication skills and integrate multimedia elements to communicate your message to an audience. In developing this presentation, you will be able to use your analyses from the first part of this project as a starting point. The reflective nature of this activity prompts you to dig deeper, though, and consider the implications posed by the critical analysis of your artifact through the four lenses. How does studying popular culture affect how you understand yourself as well as the world around you? You’ll also be challenged to incorporate a dash of creativity to enhance your message. For this third milestone, due in Module Five, you will reflect on content that will inform your final multimedia presentation, due in Module Seven. This includes the mediated nature of popular culture and its impact on one’s individual framework of perception, one’s discipline of study, and society in general. This milestone will be submitted as a presentation draft that includes speaker’s notes. Prompt: First, review the chapters we have studied thus far, paying special attention to Chapter 2, as well as any videos or supplemental articles provided, and create a presentation draft (PowerPoint with speaker notes) that analyzes the artifact under study, the one you selected in Module Two. Specifically, the following critical elements (which align to the critical elements required of the final presentation) must be addressed:

Multimedia Presentation: Create a multimedia presentation draft using visuals* to articulate how critically analyzing your popular-culture artifact through the four general education lenses impacts your own framework of perception and ability to constructively engage in society. (*Note: The final presentation requires the use of both visuals and audio.)

I. Artifact: This section of your presentation examines how your artifact embodies the mediated nature of popular culture as well as your artifact’s impact on cultural and social attitudes, choices, and behaviors.

1. Explain the impact of popular culture on your artifact. Use specific examples and evidence from research to support your explanation. 2. Explain the impact of your artifact on popular culture. Use specific examples and evidence from research to support your explanation. 3. Explain the impact of cultural and social attitudes, choices, and behaviors on your artifact. Use specific examples and evidence from research

to support your explanation. 4. Explain the impact of your artifact on society. In your explanation, consider cultural and social attitudes, choices, and behaviors. Use specific

examples and evidence from research to support your explanation. II. Yourself: This section of your presentation explores how studying popular culture influences your individual framework of perception with respect to

your discipline of study or profession. 1. How has critically analyzing your popular-culture artifact informed your individual framework of perception? Consider how it has altered the

way you perceive the world. 2. How can critically analyzing popular culture influence your field of study or profession? How can popular culture inform your understanding of

the next big topic of study in your field or profession in the next five to ten years? III. Society: This section of your presentation explores how studying popular culture enhances your ability to engage constructively in society.

1. How does critically analyzing popular culture add value to how you interact with people and popular-culture artifacts? Supplement your reasoning with examples.

2. Recommend strategies for using this kind of critical analysis for meeting your personal and professional goals. What might this look like in your everyday life? Consider how popular culture can be used to address the day-to-day responsibilities or questions faced by practitioners in your field or discipline.

3. Overall, how does your enhanced framework of perception benefit society? For example, how can studying popular culture make you a better citizen?

IV. Presentation: Throughout your presentation, you will be assessed on your ability to use effective communication skills to deliver your message to your audience.

1. Construct your presentation in a way that ensures it is logically organized in order to convey your message to your audience. 2. Provide supporting evidence in your presentation to articulate the importance of the critical analysis of popular culture. 3. Select multimedia elements to logically flow with your presentation to articulate the importance of the critical analysis of popular culture.

A. Did you emphasize key ideas in your visual elements? B. Do your visual elements logically flow with the accompanying presentation?

Be sure to reference Chapter 2 of the text as well as any other pertinent course resources to support your responses. Incorporate instructor feedback into your final presentation, due in Module Seven. PowerPoint: You are required to include a combination of text and visuals in order to support your PowerPoint presentation. Use the Check File Compatibility With Earlier Versions and Are You Having Video or Audio Playback Issues? resources to help you check compatibility between versions of Office. Also, follow the instructions on the Microsoft Support page to compress your presentation as a zipped file. Upload the zipped file when submitting Final Project Milestone Three. Reducing the size of the PowerPoint presentation file by compressing it makes it easier for your instructor to download and grade.

Rubric Guidelines for Submission: Final Project Milestone Three should be approximately 10–12 slides. You are required to include a combination of text and visuals in order to support your work. If you require alternative accommodations for completing this assignment, reach out to your instructor directly for more information. Please note that the grading rubric for this milestone submission is not identical to that of the final project. The Final Project Part Two Rubric will include an additional “Exemplary” category that provides guidance as to how you can go above and beyond “Proficient” in your final submission.
