Genetically Modified Food Labeling
For this task you will plan a presentation from the information in a research paper you’ve previously written, or if you do not have a research paper from another course, you can research a topic using three to five sources as the basis for your researched presentation.
In this task you will prepare the following items:
1. A presentation outline (This outline will include an effective introduction that states your thesis and previews your main points, a body that covers your main points and supporting evidence, and a conclusion that summarizes your points and ends with an effective closing strategy.)
Note: Your thesis must be research based. It can be either informative or argumentative. Present on a topic that will not be too familiar to a general audience. A “how to” presentation is not appropriate.
2. An original visual aid (Research within the visual aid should contain a proper in-text citation [e.g., data you collected to create a graph].)
3. A visual-aid script (This script covers only the visual aid portion of your presentation.)
4. A visual aid description (This provides analysis and description of the visual aid.)
5. Three effective audience questions and answers
6. An APA reference page
Plan a presentation (suggested length of 5–7 minutes) for your research topic.
A. Create a presentation outline showing the organization of your presentation content. Your outline should do the following:
1. Outline an introduction that appropriately catches your audience’s attention.
a. Provide an appropriate research-based thesis statement for your presentation.
b. Preview your presentation’s main points.
2. Outline a body that effectively addresses the two to three main points of your topic. (Based on the time limitations, you will not have time to discuss more than three main points of your topic.)
a. Support each point with research and evidence as indicated by APA in-text citations.
3. Outline a conclusion that ends with an effective closing strategy.
a. Summarize the main points of your presentation.
B. Create a readable, effective, and appropriately designed visual aid (e.g., chart, graph, picture, model) for the presentation.
1. Describe how your visual aid (suggested length of 1/2–1 page) supports the main points of your presentation.
C. Create a visual-aid script that covers only the visual-aid portion of the presentation.
D. Provide a list of at least three effective potential questions your audience may ask about your presentation.
1. Provide an effective planned response to each of the potential questions.
E. When you use sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.
Note: The APA requirement applies to all elements of the task when applicable: the outline, the visual aid, the visual aid description/analysis, the visual-aid script, and the Q&A. Please note further that all in-text citations must have a corresponding citation in the reference list.
Note: When bulleted points are present in the task prompt, the level of detail or support called for in the rubric refers to those bulleted points.
Note: For definitions of terms commonly used in the rubric, see the Rubric Terms web link included in the Evaluation Procedures section.
Note: When using sources to support ideas and elements in a paper or project, the submission MUST include APA formatted in-text citations with a corresponding reference list for any direct quotes or paraphrasing. It is not necessary to list sources that were consulted if they have not been quoted or paraphrased in the text of the paper or project.
Note: No more than a combined total of 30% of a submission can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. For tips on using APA style, please refer to the APA Handout web link included in the General Instructions section.

A great presentation depends not only on great planning and organization but also excellent delivery. You have completed all of the planning aspects of your presentation. You have planned an interesting introduction, you know your main points and the details to support them, and you have an effective closing. In your first task you developed at least one visual aid for your presentation and planned for some questions from the audience by preparing clear responses. Now you will present your research presentation.
In Task 2 you will submit the following items:
1. A 5–7 minute video presentation
Note: The submission of your video for grading is a two step process. First you will need to upload your video to the WGU Student Video System (see the Web Links Section below). Instructions for using the WGU Student Video System can be found by using the Help link found in the WGU Student Video System. Once you have received confirmation from the system that your video is ready for viewing, you will need to return to the Student Video System and select the “sharing” link for that video. There you will find the specific URL for your video which you can then submit here in TaskStream. Also, make sure that you have checked the “share with WGU Faculty” checkbox; this will allow the evaluators to see your video.
