Presentation PowerPoint

I’m working on a Communications exercise and need support.


TOPIC SELECTED: – Immigration Issue In California – Which would be in “POLICY DECISION-MAKING GROUP”.


Chapter 14 Lecture: Group Project Overview (30 minutes (The YouTube Video) )

*Individuals are no longer responsible for the “Individual Reflection Essay” associated with the Group Project.

This project is two parts: Group Presentation and Peer Feedback only*

For my in-person classes, I decided to eliminate the essay portion of the group project, so in order to remain fair to my online classes, I have removed the essay portion as well. The video describing the project below has been edited to remove the details regarding the essay portion of the project as best as I could.
