Introduction
It is time for us to turn our attention to outlines, organization, and topic choice. This week has two separate assignments that will be submitted. Assignment 1 is the Team Outline Exercise, which involves group work and which will prepare you for Assignment 2, an individual assignment that will start you on the road to completing your Week 7 PowerPoint presentation.
Instructions
Part 1: Outline
This week, you will have an opportunity to work in a team and to put into practice many of the communication strategies about which we are learning. Your instructor has already assigned you to a group of team members. You need to solve a communication business problem outline together by the end of the week. Note: You must engage early in the week so that you have time to work together as a group. Remember, what makes a group a team is a shared common goal, and this team will be no exception. In this case, your shared goal is to create and deliver an A+ solution to a communication business outline.
The following is a list of ideas that were brainstormed in a meeting with your company employees. The company needs to include all these ideas in an all-company presentation, but the list is very disorganized right now. What would be the best way to sort these ideas into some sequence of main points with sub points?
Hints
There are 3 main points, and the rest are sub points.
There is no introduction or conclusion.
Discuss
Your group can be found in the menu under “People.”
You must use the discussion that is setup in the Group Home Page to work on this project.
With your assigned team, unscramble the following statements to create a logical outline for an upcoming business presentation. Use standard outline format as described in your textbook.
Ensure that the language is used correctly.
Speaker credibility influences how listeners feel about the speaker.
Character is the quality of being honest, trustworthy, and showing goodwill.
Deliver the speech with confidence.
Credibility is an extremely important factor in determining speaker effectiveness.
Connect the audience to the topic.
Practice your delivery.
Verbally cite personal subject knowledge.
Present error-free written materials.
Credibility has three primary characteristics: the three Cs.
Ensure that typographical errors are eliminated.
Charisma is the quality of being assertive, confident, and enthusiastic.
Speaker credibility influences the listener’s ability to learn or to believe.

Verbally cite expert sources.
Connect yourself to the topic.
Plan your delivery.

Competence is the quality of being an expert and being intelligent.
Connect with the audience on a personal level.
Establish common ground.
Credibility is established in four ways.
All team members must collaborate in the group discussion and submit the same version of the outline. Please put the names of your group members who participated in this exercise on the title page under your name. Each member must submit the final group project for their grade.
Part 2: Reflection
As part of your individual submission, reflect on the group process. Was there miscommunication? Were there any listening barriers? How did the group handle it?

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
As a freelance graphic artist, you were hired by a client to design a National Parks Poster (i.e., Yellowstone National Park, Acadia National Park, Mammoth Cave, Mount Rainier, Yosemite, etc.). This project will incorporate all the tools and design techniques that you learned throughout the course.
PROJECT REQUIREMENTS
Size: 11”x17”, margins .25”
Create the poster, keeping in mind good design principles, using a recent version of Adobe Illustrator (or approved alternative application: InkScape or Affinity Designer).
Design
The design of the national parks’ poster should incorporate a representative image of the park. For instance, Redwood National Park is known for its beautiful tall redwood trees. On the poster the designer would incorporate the redwood trees in the design. The design also should incorporate the name of national park.
Development
The poster design should demonstrate:
1. Pen Tool: at least two design elements in each stamp must be created by the pen tool. The lines created with the pen tool are smooth, including the creation of Bezier curves.
2. Fill: should be in color. A minimum of 3 colors should be used in each design.
3. Stroke: a minimum of one design element must have a stroke.
4. Gradient: a minimum of one design element must have a gradient.
5. Shapes: use the shape tool (i.e. rectangle, oval, circle, etc.) to create one unique design element. Use the pathfinder to unite, minus front, intersect, divide, exclude, merge.
6. Effects: One design element should have an effect (i.e. drop shadow) applied.
7. Pattern: use a design element made of shapes to create a pattern in the design using either a pattern brush or the symbol sprayer.
8. Mesh: incorporate the mesh tool into the design. Add a mesh to a minimum of one design element.
9. Type: incorporate type into the design. Use create outlines to modify the shape of the type to fit the theme of the design if applicable.
10. Layers: Layers should be used and named appropriately. Use a minimum of three layers.
11. Swatches: create a minimum of one custom swatch of a color in the design. Name the swatch.
12. Brush: incorporate a design element using the brush tool.
Artist Statement Rationale
13. After you have designed the poster, write an artist statement that includes:
a. Discuss your design in terms of visual appeal, creativity, and readability.
i. Discuss why the design appeals to the intended audience.
ii. Discuss why you used certain design elements and fonts.
iii. The techniques used in the design.
Submission Requirements
14. Submit the source file (i.e. Adobe Illustrator-.ai, Inkscape-.svg), PDF, and .png.
15. Please submit your completed project to your Assignments Folder in before the due date.

Using Visual Aids
Appropriately incorporating visual aids is one of the most challenging aspect of public speaking. First, you must decide if your voice carries a message more powerfully than a visual. If you decide a visual is imperative, what type of visual aid will you use and how will you practice deploying it effectively within your speech? Please watch the following TED Talk by Salman Khan, creator of Khan academy. After viewing the presentation, answer the following questions.

Salman Khan: Let’s use video to reinvent education
How do you feel Khan’s slides impacted his audience’s ability to process the material he was speaking about? In your opinion, did the use of these visuals improve – or damage – the speech? Why?
Have you ever been in a lecture or meeting and been bored to death by a slide presentation? What is the difference between a great slideshow and a horrible one? What is the purpose of a slideshow?
If you were designing a slideshow for this speech, what images would you want to include? Why?
Is it possible that the power of the spoken word can be lessened by visuals? Do you feel there are occasions when words should stand alone? Give an example.

Unit 6 DB: The symbols of your life
Unit 6 DB: The symbols of your lifeInitial response: Henry and Walker provide stories that include symbols that are life-changing for the protagonist(s). In two or more well-developed paragraphs, answer the following prompts:
Choose a symbol from either “The Gift of the Magi” or “Everyday Use” and discuss what significance this symbol had to you as the reader (an example of this would be the combs Jim gave to Della and a discussion about a precious gift that you received or gave).  Use text examples in this section.
If someone were to write your life story, what symbol would be present and why?  How does this symbol represent you?   You can attach a picture of your symbol (an example of this might be a baby blanket from your childhood, or a baseball from your first game).

Ethics
Read chapter 3, the films “Gone Baby Gone” and “Sleepers”. 
Pick one movie and apply Kant’s moral philosophy to judge the MAIN FINAL action. For “Gone Baby Gone” judge Patrick’s final decision and for “Sleepers” judge the priest’s final decision. Judging any other action in the movie is an automatic zero. 500 words minimum in MLA/APA format.
*You must apply Kant’s 3 premises (week 6 folder) for 50 points and Michael Sandel’s 3 contrasts (Week 6 Folder Lecture: Mind your Motive) for 50 points.
