Kolcaba’s Comfort Theory
There are two parts to this assignment.
Part 1: A PowerPoint or Prezi non-narrated presentation (20-25 minutes or 20-25 slides) using the guidelines below to critique the middle range theory you selected in Module 6, Question 2.
Part 2: A 1-2 page handout in WORD (see the last criteria below).
[Note a Prezi is a form of presentation style that you can find at prezi.com].
This is the time when you are demonstrating what you have learned in this theory course. This requires you to use your judgment. The first judgment is selecting a theory that will enable you to do this project. IF your theory is published in a book and you don’t own that book, that’s not a good theory for you to use. IF this theory has very little associated with it, that is not a great theory to use. You have to cite the theorist, not McEwen and Wills or another theory textbook about a theory. The exception to this would be if the theorist also has a website and ALL of the theory is described there by the theorist.
Submit your PowerPoint or Prezi presentation (label Prezi file with your name and name of theory) and your 1-2 page handout in WORD (label file with your name and name of the theory) to the dropbox as 2 separate documents. When you have the copy you want faculty to grade, also upload that copy of the presentation and handout to the DB for Module 8. If you use a Prezi, copy the embed code for your Prezi into a WORD document that also has the copied text of your Prezi pasted into it. This WORD document with your pasted Prezi text copied will only have your name, the embed code, and a list of phrases. The copied phrases don’t have to be connected in any way. You are only providing the text to obtain a TURNITIN score. The WORD document isn’t being graded, the Prezi will be.
Post your evaluation and comments about 2 of your colleagues presentations to the Module 8 Discussion Board.
Note: Please know that you cannot narrate this presentation because the sound files would be too large. You cannot use Adobe Presenter as I did because you would have to have the software and you would have to have faculty access to upload them. You won’t be verbally making a presentation because this is an online class.
Please note that when you submit papers to the dropbox, it will give you a TURNITIN score. Faculty will not read any presentation with a TURNITIN score higher than 25% exclusive of the reference list. Notice that since an originality score is based on the total number of words, you will have fewer words in this presentation for TURNITIN to read. If you quote a lot, expect a very high TURNITIN socre. If you don’t know how to use TURNITIN, click Using TURNITIN.
Please use the grading rubric for this presentation that is in the dropbox. The grading rubric will give you the most detailed description of what is required in this presentation.
