PowerPoint Presentation Assignment Instructions
This assignment will be very similar to the Research Paper Assignments completed in this course. However, it is our desire that not only do you become a great researcher, but you also become an “expert of the presentation.” When you earn your PhD, you may find yourself in a teaching role. In fact, maybe you will be teaching Transnational Organized Crime! This series of PowerPoint presentations will be a great start in your class preparation. In this assignment you analyze organized crime in various countries and reduce your analysis to a PowerPoint with speaker notes. You will truly be an international criminal. The “crime” committed can be of your choosing as long as it is illegal in the country we are studying. You will find that this very deep dive into the criminal justice systems of each country we study will help you become a world criminal justice system expert.
These are minimum guidelines – you may expand the topics covered in your PowerPoint – keep the quality at a doctoral level.
1) Analyze the nature of organized crime in the assigned area (you may narrow the scope of your analysis through your introduction if needed)
2) Analyze the impact of organized crime in the assigned area on the government
3) Briefly propose policies that may be helpful in mitigating organized crime in the assigned area
4) A Holy Bible comparison/analysis of the nature of the organized crime system, the impact on the country, or your proposed policy to mitigate the system
Prepare a 10 slide PowerPoint presentation. Title slide(s) and reference slide(s) do not count toward the slide count. The vast slide count difference is because organized crime in some countries is quite easy to study and organized crime in some countries have very limited information. In some instances, there will be a plethora of information and you must use skilled writing to maintain proper slide count. Please keep in mind that this is a doctoral level presentation. Your research must go beyond the mere textbook and have a minimum of 8 scholarly sources. The Holy Bible should be used at least once in the PowerPoint presentation. Each slide (of the 10 slides) must have 200 to 350 words of bulleted or paragraph speakers notes (in speaker notes section of the slide build). The slides should be professional and not cluttered with too many words. The sources should be reflected in the speaker notes, slides, and “reference section slide.” Additionally, you, the student, should use animations, transitions, and graphics to reflect PhD level research. Please review the grading rubric when forming your presentation. Sources should reflect scholarly work but may include .gov information is there is an author or if the information comes from a valid government research database (think CIA, State Department, United Nations, etc.).
