Imagine you are the Head of State for a country (not  a real country, but a made up country name) and must prepare a presentation with 10-12 slides regarding the cultural significance of the country. The country is about the size and geography of Texas and it has a border with the ocean and another with a country of the same size and geography. Your presentation must include the following information:

  • What cultural tools might you use to maintain the historical traditions of your country? Please give two specific examples.
  • Provide two positive examples of cross-cultural influences to the people of your country. Why would they be considered positive?
  • Provide two negative examples of cross-cultural influences to the people of your country. Why would they be considered negative?
  • What have real countries done to deliberately influence interaction with outside cultures that your country might incorporate? Provide two examples

Use the Speaker Notes area of PowerPoint for your narrative textual information, with restricted use of text on the slides to focus on trigger words of topic importance.  Review PowerPoint guidelines if you are not sure of the recommended way to set up the slides.  The Smarthinking resource is also available to assist in the basics of the PowerPoint tool.

Generally, the main topics or bullet points should appear on the slides with supporting visuals, while the Speaker Notes area is used to go into more depth regarding these main topics.

Please use APA reference and citation format for the sources that you use to support your explanation and argument. Place citations on the relevant slides with one or two slides at the end for your reference list.
