California English Presentation Program Plan
The topic is based off of chapter 22 of American Voices which I have provided the pdf of.
Your presentation should discuss the following aspects of your chosen dialect:
An introduction stating the name of the dialect, where it is spoken, who speaks it, where it developed, and how it developed (i.e. its linguistic origins).
A brief description of the dialect’s unique linguistic features (e.g. sounds, vocabulary, and grammatical conventions).
A description of the socio-economic, religious, ethnic and/or cultural practices associated with speakers of the dialect.
A description of the history of social attitudes towards this dialect. Is the dialect and those who use it viewed positively or negatively, and have these attitudes changed since the dialect was first used? If so, how have attitudes changed?
Discuss the media’s representation of the dialect and how the media has contributed to the different social attitudes towards this dialect.
A conclusion in which you state your opinion about the value of the dialect. Should the dialect be preserved? Why or why not? How might it be preserved?
You should cite and reference at least four sources on your chosen dialect in your research paper and this presentation. Note that at least two of your four sources must be scholarly articles or peer-reviewed, which usually include sources like journal articles, book chapters, or conference papers. You may also use a chapter from the book American voices as one of your sources.
Synthesize your information into PowerPoint or Google slides and present the information using the organization shown above. The presentation should be about 6-7 minutes in length. In your presentation, you may optionally include relevant audio or video clips depicting the dialect, but any audio or video you include may not take up more than two minutes of your presentation time. The final slide should include your cited sources in MLA format.
