Research ProjectInstructions:For this assignment, you should select a food or cuisine and then track the geography of this food. A sample presentation is included with this assignment, so please review that sample.This exercise is designed to have each student conduct research, assess and summarize his or her research findings, and present it in PowerPoint or Prezi format. This will be just like writing a research paper, except that the research findings will be presented in outline form in PowerPoint or Prezi, rather than as a research paper. Just like a research paper, your presentation should include slides that contain a title, introduction to the topic, main body, summary and conclusions, and bibliography. Creative use of properly cited graphics and photos from the Internet, which are relevant to your topic, is encouraged.Goals of this project include encouraging development of research skills, familiarization with presentation of academic material, and practice in communicating research to an ‘audience’. If you do not have access to PowerPoint, you may download free compatible software at OpenOffice.org.Instructions:Title: Research ProjectYou will not find the ‘answer’ for this assignment in the text or any other single location – this is an integrative assignment that requires you, the student, to create your presentation template and apply your own knowledge on the assigned topic.You MUST stick to the topic – projects turned in that are not on the topic will not be considered for grading.Please create a 12-15 slide (to approximate a 15 minute spoken presentation) PowerPoint presentation discussing the way that the following geographic concepts are represented in in a particular food item or cuisine:1. Regions2. Diffusion3. Cultural landscape4. Distance decayBe sure to address these SPECIFIC geographic terms and concepts. You may use ‘subsets’ of these definitions (e.g. contagious diffusion) if such subsets exist. Be sure to refer to your text and glossary to ensure you completely understand these concepts.Be sure to present clear citations and mature work. Make the most of each slide to show effective communication – one of APUS’s primary learning objectives for all students in all classes (see syllabus for detail).This exercise will require some research on your part and you are to use legitimate sources. Be careful of Wikipedia or other ‘wiki’ sites. Try for official and creditable sites and sources.
