Papers/Topics will include evidence of when students have done the work for each competency (include samples -evidence of learning) (total of 30 pts)
a.For each essay students must demonstrate average proficiency in critical analysis, structuring a topic, and grammar and punctuation, as well as APA/MLA formatting style.
You will need to complete 3 essays that describe how you have shown your level of proficiency in two competencies through one or more learning activities completed throughout your general education classes. Each essay will be awarded a max of 10 points when completed (each competency will be worth 5 points). Videos will be awarded FOUR extra points.
Choose two competencies at a time to evaluate in an essay or video. Essays should be 4 to 6 pages long and videos should be between 3 & 4 minutes long and include proper citations. See the folder on Digital Storytelling in Course Materials for tutorials on how to make videos.
You can either use one learning activity for both competencies or choose a different activity for each of the competencies.
In the essays describe a learning activity that you have done (provide the example with your assignment) and how you successfully showed proficiency in each section (bullet) of the competency. For example, you have an activity from an english course and want to use it for the Critical Thinking Competency. So, you need to explain how parts or the whole of the activity include the aspects of the competency:
Critical thinking involves the ability to analyze and interpret insightfully and in depth. At the completion of the General Education curriculum, students should be able to:
Evaluate the viewpoints or assumptions of others
Evaluate their own viewpoints or assumptions
Create a specific position (perspective, thesis/hypothesis) that takes into account the complexities of an issue
Synthesize information from sources
Draw logical conclusions and identify consequences and implications
You can either use screen shots or quote parts of the activity to explain how this evidence you are providing meets the assignment requirements & competency. So- if you cited sources at the end then you can state that for #7 you documented your research according to APA/MLA etc…then provide a screen shot of the page. Try your best to provide evidence for 100% of the competency components.
