Now that you have completed your first essay or video, pick another two competencies and you can look the sample assignment(s)…do it again!  

essays or videos (submitted on Bb then later posted to Digication). 

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/video students must demonstrate average proficiency in critical analysis, structuring a topic, and grammar and punctuation, as well as APA/MLA formatting style.

New Information:

You will need to complete 3 essays or videos 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 or videos, 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 Written Communication Competency.  So, you need to explain how parts or the whole of the activity include the aspects of the competency:

1* Choose and narrow a subject.

2* Identify a purpose and formulate an appropriate thesis statement.

3* Organize ideas effectively and develop them within a logical paragraph structure.

4* Support points clearly with adequate and specific evidence.

5* Demonstrate command of accepted English sentence structure and grammar.

6* Revise and edit according to standard English practice, including attention to punctuation and appropriate vocabulary. 

7* Acknowledge all sources by documenting research according to a recognized manual.

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.  

Let me know if you have a hard time doing this assignment.  Email me at [email protected]

Once you have submitted and I have graded the essay/video to satisfaction, then you can upload it to your digicationportfolio (we will set up the accounts next week).
