What’s needed in the Slides “Presentation”
A description and reflection on your research process: what was your topic? How did you choose your topic (problem drive research or source driven research)? How did you find your sources (both primary and secondary) and how did you find this process? How did you narrow down your topic to a specific research question(s)?
Literature review and research findings: what does the literature say about your topic? What are some of the dominant themes and arguments? What are your main conclusions/findings? What kind of evidence is there to support those findings? How does your primary source support your findings?
You must include a bibliography slide at the end of the presentation.
