This essay/project is a group project. You will have a presentation to participate in as well as a paper to write. This
is in addition to the individual process essay you need to complete.
1. Recipes are fine for
a topic under the following conditions:
a. It is a dish you can prepare in class in the time allotted (baking outside
of class and bringing in the finished product is fine).
b. There is no alcohol in the recipe. (State law prohibits alcoholic
beverages on college campuses)
c. You can set-up, prepare and CLEAN UP your recipe ingredients in the time allotted without
loss in content/instruction.
2. There should be minimal expense incurred by members of the group--and expenses should
be shared equally, including purchasing food products, getting copies, etc.
3. Topic should not involve any dangerous
tools (for example, do not explain how to load a gun).
4. Topic needs to be inclusive of all members--in other words,
the topic needs to be BIG enough for each member to participate with at least two major steps, yet NARROW enough to be presented
in the time allotted for your presentation.
Here is a POSSIBLE break down of how your group duties could be allocated (of course this will depend on your topic):
a. Person A is responsible for the introduction, transitions and conclusion of the presentation.
b. Person B is responsible
for the first 2-4 steps of the process.
c. Person C is responsible for the second 2-4 steps of the process.
D is the "Purpose" person or "color commentator." He/she
is responsible for the information the audience needs to keep
in mind about
the steps of the process, or for the information about the purpose of the
finished product. For example,
giving a safety tip about the proper way to
use a table saw, or the best way to find the center of the fabric would be
part of this person's job.
e. If you have five people in your group, you will need to either expand your process or
develop enough of an introduction/conclusion for two people to
