Before you begin work on any research project, examine the assignment for requirements.
Q. How long is the PowerPoint presentation?
This could be a slide length, a word count, presentation time limit etc.
Q. How many sources?
How many total sources does your instructor ask for; are they all outside sources or does your textbook count as one of your sources?
Q. What kind of sources?
Does your instructor specify certain types of sources? Are there other requirements such as how current/old the sources can be, or where the source should come from - the library, a database, a book/ebook, a peer-reviewed journal, etc.?
Q. How do you cite sources?
Q. When is it due?
How long do you have to work on this team project? Working in a group can be challenging. Plan out your time, divide the work equally so one person does not get stuck doing all the work at the last minute. Plan extra time in case you have problems, team conflicts, or get stuck.
The first thing you need to do before you begin this group project is to select a topic that you're going to research and present. Here are a few suggested topics from your assignment:
Create a communication plan early. How will team members communicate? In person, by email, regularly scheduled meetings?
Review the assignment, divide the work, hold team members accountable, create clear goals, and set deadlines.
Discuss the project, responsibilities of each team member, deadlines, etc.
