Group Multi-Media Presentations in the ‘Sociology of Language and Ethnicity’
This paper describes an innovative type of group class presentation which I have developed for a course called \"The Sociology of Language and Ethnicity.\" The purpose of this assignment is to present material in a range of modalities (e.g., visual, auditory, oral) so that students with a variety of learning styles and cultural backgrounds can gain from the experience. Groups of 5-8 students collectively create a multimedia presentation on the three most important themes in one of the four books read by the class. The assignment is deliberately open-ended and is designed so that students can work cooperatively and work in a range of learning styles and media. I describe several creative ways that students in my classes completed the assignment.
