· Prompt: Your presentation will focus on the author of your selected book. The goal of the presentation is to inform your audience about the author’s life and literary career. Here are some questions to consider:
What are their most important publications?
What awards have they won?
How have critics and the public received their work?
Has their work generated any controversy?
Who are their literary influences?
Incorporate multi-modal elements (handout, audio/visual clip, PowerPoint, etc.) in your presentation. It is imperative that you work on this assignment consistently throughout the term.
· When doing research to learn more about the author and text, be sure to use scholarly sources. There is information about distinguishing between scholarly and popular sources here: http://www.library.vanderbilt.edu/peabody/tutorial_files/scholarlyfree/. A good database to begin your research with is the Literary Reference Center Plus (access available through TU’s library website).
