The one-page summary must contain both the identifying information of the student (Full Name, Course, Section, Submission Date) as well as the event (Event Title, Presenter's Name, Date of Event, Location of Event). The summary must be comprised of three paragraphs written on 1-inch margins and in single-space (not double-space). Please note your total word count should be no less than 500 words.
- The first paragraph should describe the structure of the event (Who introduced the speaker? How long did the speaker present for? Did they use any audio-visual equipment? Approximately how many people were in attendance? Was there a Q&A period and how engaged was the audience?).
- The second paragraph should summarize the argument made by the presenter (What was the speaker discussing in terms of topic, geographic location, and time period? What was the presenter's main thesis? What evidence did the speaker use to support their argument?).
- The third paragraph should provide your appraisal of the event (Did you find the event interesting? Why or why not? What is something new you learned? Did you find the presentation convincing? Why or why not? And do now think differently about something in particular because of the presentation? Why or why not?).
