Political Spectrum Project: Group Planning Day 2
The Action-Decision Process instructions for Wednesday for the groups to plan their presentation or product:
ACTION-DECISION PROCESS PART II. ” THEME, NARRATIVE & CONTENT”
1. Make certain that your group has done step 4. from yesterday’s instructions and examined all the note cards.
2. Make a list of similarities shared by the subtopics that make them all part of the same point on the political spectrum. Then compose a list of differences.
3. The group objective is to explain a point on the political spectrum. When you organize your ideas you begin with your THEMES, then construct a NARRATIVE structure or outline and finish by inserting in your research CONTENT.
THEMES – the two or three largest ideas that will tie everything together
NARRATIVE – the structure, sequence and point “story” of what you are trying to say.
CONTENT – the examples, facts, anecdotes and images that fill out and support the narrative
4. STORYBOARDING – use the Storyboard sheets to lay out the narrative and sketch the narrative and the content and images that you think you might want to use. Storyboarding is not a “final” version or a rigid plan but a very rough draft or guideline to follow as you design your presentation or make your product.
It is a good idea to xerox your storyboard so that everyone has a copy or in case it gets lost.
THE PROJECT IS DUE ON MONDAY DECEMBER 13
