Students will divide into groups of 3 -4 people (no more than 6 groups).

Groups should show these literary texts reflect human values and still have relevance to today's world.

Primary sources must be used in addition to at least 2 secondary sources. Secondary sources should focus on the historical or social context. All sources should be documented correctly in MLA style (including a Works Cited). The final presentation should be uploaded to the Canvas Wiki. You will be scored on the following 5 criteria (also reflected in the rubric for this assignment): 1.

Mechanics: The presentation is polished, demonstrates good grammar, spelling, and punctuation. All groups should prepare a Power. Point or Prezi (Links to an external site. ) presentation. All sources used in the presentation should be properly documented and cited in a Works Cited. Someone in the group must prepare and submit a copy of the presentation, Works Cited included both to Canvas through this assignment and to the Group Project Wiki Page before class on the date of the presentation. Note: You can use a resource such as Citation Machine (Links to an external site. ) to create your Works Cited entries, but you must also make sure that you are making the necessary corrections to the format so they appear in your presentation correctly. This page (Links to an external site. ) shows an example of an MLA Works Cited so you can visually see what it ought to look like (scroll to the bottom, p. 6). This site (Links to an external site. ) gives rules and examples. Use the drop down menu on the page to select the type of source (ex: Work from an anthology or Journal from an online database).
