Democracy Days

General Education Capstone Course

Event Details and Guideline Form

Event Title: Democracy Days

Gen. Ed. Category Event should be listed under    Multicultural Valuing or Social Sciences depending on the subject matter

Guidelines for accomplishment of Event:

Compose a minimum four page summary of the event you experienced. 

Keep in mind the competencies identified with the help of your Capstone facilitator as you make an account of your experiences. 

When you attend, be alert to the thesis of the presentation, particularly as it relates to what the presenter is offering about the quality, depth or function of the topic, and how the thesis is supported ( i.e. evidence, examples).  Explain in detail the event and write a clear, concise thesis statement.

Feel free to ask the presenter to clarify his or her thesis.  Find an article that supports the presenter’s position, or find a universal theme, dilemma or viewpoint that could attract any audience and articulate an informed position on it.   Or find an opposing article that supports better your position and incorporate it into your paper.  What most impressed you that perhaps changed a previous attitude or belief?  Can you evaluate the historical, cultural or social connection or relevancy to our society today?  If necessary, do some research to support your informed response. A works cited page and proper MLA citation required.
