Class period: 170 minutes – 9:00 AM – 11:50 AM

ANALYSIS: 5 pts: Was the issue analyzed thoroughly and were different approaches suggested? 5 points if yes or lenient point reduction if not.
SUGGESTIONS FOR ACTION: 5 pts.: Did the speaker give clear calls for actions we can take or that can be taken by others? 5 points if yes or reduced if vague or absent.
FORMAT AND TIME: 5 pts.: Was APA format used? Were the article(s) cited appropriate, relevant, and integrated effectively? Was the speech within the time limits? 5 points if yes or reduced for errors.
CRITICAL THOUGHT: 5 pts.: Did the speaker demonstrate critical thought by not directly reading from the sources used, by carefully considering the issues and discussing implications, etc.? 5 points if yes or reduced if unclear or lacking.
TOTAL: 20 pts.
