Small scale research project- presentation script

  1. 1. Small-Scale Research Project<br />The Presentation Script<br />
  2. 2. Presentation Script<br />Your findings should be formatted as the script for your presentation.<br />This will therefore include both dialogue and any ‘actions’ in your presentation.<br />
  3. 3. Formatting<br />A lot of freedom in how you present your presentation script.<br />Need to differentiate between your ‘dialogue’ and any actions<br />Suggestions:<br />- Actions in italics<br />- Action in brackets<br />- Clearly identify SPEAKER (in capital letters) whenever changing from Actions to Dialogue<br />
  4. 4. Example: Representation of Teachers in Film<br /> [SPEAKER walks into the room wearing a leather jacket and throws all the books off of the room]<br /> SPEAKER: This is apparently the way that films portray good teachers. As people that break the rules rather than conform to them. Here’s an example:<br /> [Clip from School of Rock- 42.57- 44.34]<br />
  5. 5. Actions<br />You do not need to ‘perform’ all of your actions even if they are written in your presentation script <br />You are expected to show clips from all of your focus films and provide powerpoint/images that you may have used<br />
  6. 6. Examples of Actions<br />Use of Powerpoint (identify when changing slides)<br />DVD clips<br />Anything else visual or that needs additional explanation<br />
  7. 7. DVD Clip Actions<br />Should be short<br />Should have precise timings<br />Should be referred to in your script. Please ensure that you use clips for a specific purpose and either introduce or reflect on any clip used- the more specific the better.<br />
  8. 8. Example: Representation of Teachers in Film<br /> [Clip from School of Rock- 42.57- 44.34]<br /> SPEAKER: While the message may be slightly obscured by the comedy of the scene, the film does seem to state that Jack Black’s Dewey Finn is a good teacher, someone who has been a positive force for the students. The students complaints in this scene towards Rosalie Mullins are accepted as truth.<br />
  9. 9. Powerpoint Actions<br />These need to be provided and will be sent to the examiner.<br />Please avoid simply typing everything you are saying.<br />Try to use it to provide visual aids<br />
  10. 10. Important Points To Remember<br />Approximately 1500 words (no more than 1700)<br />Short credited quotations can be excluded from the word count<br />Reference to items of research must be made explicitly in your presentation<br />Most of your items should be referenced (otherwise how do you prove they were useful)<br />
  11. 11. Example: Representation of Teachers in Film<br /> SPEAKER: School of Rock’s message is perhaps quite subtle, but it has been suggested by William Gould that a film like Dangerous Minds is much more explicit in its depiction of the ideal teacher (Item 5)<br />
  12. 12. Finally…<br />Draft due October 16th- you are strongly encouraged to start working on this now. <br />
