This course has a Final Project which is in the form of a PowerPoint presentation. You can choose a topic from this semester or something you come up with yourself, but your presentation must be about economics and be original (ie not just material verbatim that you have pulled from your text/readings or off the internet). Of course, you can still insert charts, graphs, videos, graphics, and excerpts from outside sources (as long as you cite those sources!) I want to see your commentary and analysis, in your own words. IMPORTANT: Copying the work of others and representing it as your own (ex. copy and paste off of the internet or your text, OR using someone else's work and just changing a few words) is Plagiarism, a serious academic offense. I have enabled the Turnitin plagiarism checker for this assignment, to help you identify potential areas of plagiarism. Papers that are substantially plagiarized will NOT be accepted for grading. Although the format is a PowerPoint, I want to emphasize that this is NOT like your typical PowerPoint, which is basically an outline for a live presentation. Your project must be substantially loaded with content. You can do this either on the slides themselves, or you can add voice-over to simulate a live presentation. The first slide should be your Introduction slide, the next 10-15 slides should be informational slides, the last slide should be the reference slide. Make sure you read and understand the rubrics (guidelines for grading) attached to this assignment, which can be accessed by clicking on the 3 dots in the upper right-hand corner of the assignment box.
