BSC 1020 Spring 2014 Extra-Credit Activity

-1-

BSC 1020
SPRING 2014
EXTRA-CREDIT ACTIVITY
GENERAL GUIDELINES
? This assignment is worth up to 20 points of extra-credit. These will be added to your total
points for the course.
? It consists of a collection of cartoons and advertisements that are related to this course. These
would have to be compiled into a PowerPoint presentation, the template for which can be found
in the Extra-credit Module in the course’s main menu on Canvas.
? The PowerPoint presentation is divided into two sections:
Section I – Laughter is the Best Medicine!
? Consists of 10 cartoons that you would have to find on the internet! Each cartoon should
be inserted into its appropriate slot in the PPT slide. Next to the cartoon, you would have to type
a short paragraph that includes the reasons you chose this particular cartoon. In other words, why
is it related to class content? You also have to include the source of the cartoon (its URL). I have
included an example for you in an early slide of the presentation.
? The cartoons have to be compiled according to these rules:
1) At least five different websites must be used
2) One source has to be the Tampa Bay Times (http://comics.tampabay.com/)
3) No more than three cartoons can come from the same cartoon strip
4) At least five cartoons should be from sources “published” this semester
? Instructions:
- If you are using a PC, simply right-click on the image, and then left-click to choose
“copy image”. You can then “paste” the image onto the PPT slide.
- You can then use the picture toolbar to move the image in its appropriate location.
- If you are using a Mac, please let me know. I’m not a Mac user, but I will find out
how to do it and email you back.
? Note: The cartoons can also be drawn!

Section II – I Can’t Believe It’s Not Biology!
? Consists of 10 advertisements, published in newspapers/magazines this semester! These
advertisements have to be related to biological issues/concepts that are pertinent to this course,
whether we cover them in class or not. The ads would have to be scanned and the image inserted
into its appropriate slot into the PowerPoint presentation. Next to the ad, you would have to type
a couple of sentences that state the reason this ad it related to class content. You also have to
include the source of the advertisement.
In addition, you should include your own slogan/jingle ? for that “product”.
? The advertisements have to be compiled according to the following rules:
- At least three different sources must be used (the internet cannot be one of them)
- No more than one advertisement can come from the same issue
- At least five have to come from publications this semester
- No more than two advertisements can be about the same “product”
? Instructions:
- Scan the ads and save them at relatively low quality. (Otherwise, the images will be
very big and so the PowerPoint presentation will be too huge to submit)
- Note: You can also take a picture of the advertisement with your smart phone
- Then open your PPT presentation, and click on “Insert” and choose “Picture from file”
from the drop-down menu.
- If you do not have a scanner, you can use the ones in the USF library or the USF
computer labs. Alternatively, you can find scanners at any FedEx office near you
(http://www.fedex.com/us/office/index.html)
GRADING
? Again, this assignment is worth 20 extra-credit points, which will be added to your point total
for the course.
? Sections I and II are worth 10 points each.
? The cartoons and advertisements will be graded mainly on their pertinence to the course, the
thoughtfulness of your interpretations, and originality.
? Points will be deducted for mechanical problems such as
- speling mistakes
- the use of of repeated words
- grammatical errors you might have make
? Points will also be deducted if you do not follow any of the instructions given for the creation
and submission of the project.
