In the Research Article Show and Tell Presentation, students make a 5-minute presentation in class in which they present the purpose, method, and results of an academic research journal article of their choice related to the course topic. The article must be from a peer-reviewed academic journal; students choose three possible academic journal articles using the UNLV Library Database, and make a final choice in collaboration with the instructor. Students then create a one-page handout for classmates which summarizes the article's purpose, findings, and research approach; the handout must include both text and graphics (photos, clip art). Students use PowerPoint or Prezi during their oral presentation. Needs met include: (1) learning how to search for information in databases using key terms; (2) being able to communicate written information creatively; and (3) being able to present information clearly and concisely to others in a public speaking setting.
