During the first week of class, you will be assigned two readings from which to create abstracts. If you do an unassigned reading, you will receive a 0 for the assignment. Each abstract is to be no more than two pages in length. Be prepared to present abstract #1 to the class. Rescheduling will not be permitted. Handouts, visual aids, and creative approaches (video/audio clips, current events, etc.) are welcomed. You may use PowerPoint to add clarity and a professional aesthetic to your presentation. The presentation should be 4 – 6 minutes. Conclude the abstract with three written thoughtful questions for the class.
More specifically: Begin the written abstract with the APA bibliographic reference. The rest of the abstract should be divided into three sections: summary, analysis, and evaluation. Abstracts will be graded on a) having a correct bibliographic entry on top; b) an accurate summary of the article; c) an analysis that includes methodology and references to IC terms, theory, and themes; and d) an evaluation that assesses the article’s perspective, contribution to learning, and impact on your thinking about intercultural communication. Again, conclude the abstract with three related questions to be addressed in class. This is not a lecture but an opportunity to share your interpretation of the material.
