Powerpoint And Script

Powerpoint And Script

You will be preparing a narrated PowerPoint Presentation and submitting  both the narrated presentation and a written “script” of your  presentation (what you narrated for each slide). The technique for  completing this may have been covered in an earlier course, but if you  have questions, please review the video below, or the script attached to  these assignment instructions

Your readings and lessons from the last two weeks have focused on the  different ways that various cultures prepare food that may have an  impact on food safety. For instance, in Japan, fish is often consumed  rare, presenting different food safety issues than if the fish was  consumed after cooking it to a safe temperature. Additionally,  demographics of a region can affect food safety. There are many areas of  the world that do not have access to a safe water supply or have access  to refrigeration in order to safely preserve their raw meats.


The focus of your presentation should be on ONE specific Region/Culture.  The content of your presentation should explain in general how cultural  practices and economic demographics affect the safety of the food  supply for that region/culture. Be sure to use specific examples to  illustrate the points you are making. Explain how these cultural or  demographic factors could expand beyond that one region and affect the  global food supply (think cross border trading, traveling, or food  manufacturing). You may wish to use examples from your own culture to  explain your ideas and conclusions, feel free to include photos of your  own cultural food preparation practices if it enhances your  presentation.

Five elements to include: Cultural practices pertaining to cuisine,  economic situation of the region, infrastructure of the region,  demographics of the region, global implications from food supply in that  region.

You will be graded on the content of your presentation along with  your actual presentation skills, i.e. speaking clearly and slowly,  making sure that the words and illustrations on your slides enhance what  you are explaining verbally (make sure you do not include too many  words on your slides or simply read from your slides). A presentation  should be a combination of visuals and narration, working together to  present your ideas.

Be sure to submit both the narrated PowerPoint Presentation along with your script in a word document.
