- [1a] - Prepare 5 slides (minimum) as a draft of your final presentation (due 12.9). Make at least one slide a data visualization slide that presents key findings using one of the techniques covered in the Excel workshop in class (11/18) on qualitative or qualitative data. [ie. creating a graph/table/word cloud/word count/etc.] In class on Monday, 12/2, you will get five minutes to share and discuss this one data visualization slide and gather feedback. [Note: You are free to consider using another program or platform to create the viz; just check in with the teaching team in advance. Specifically think about which aspects of the survey data relate with the bigger picture and the story you are trying to tell, especially in reference to your interview(s) and archive visits.]
- [1b] - Prepare four "qualitative" slides that frame the results of your interview and/or research from your archival visits. Try to use at least one of the two quotes that you pulled from your interview, data from your archive visits, readings and any other pertinent data. In the lab on Wednesday, 12/4, you will get to further discuss your data visualization along with these four qualitative slides and research to date.
- [1c] - Draft a one page outline of your final paper. Think of how the 5 slides can serve as concrete detail for the argument and narrative you will develop in your paper. Aim to represent data from your interview, data from your archive visits, readings and any other pertinent data.
- NOTE: The more thought you put into crafting this exercise, the easier it will be for you to prepare your final presentation and paper!
Focus on your projects and enjoy the break.
