Students in two English Composition, ENG 101, courses will create a community partnership with local non-profit organizations and design a Prezi presentation and promotional brochure for the organization. Students will develop the documents using a professional subscription to Prezi and Microsoft Word. Prezi is a cloud-based, non-linear program accessible beyond the classroom. The submission of comments on the process and rough drafts of the projects will begin on a Web site. Throughout the semester the student groups will be communicating with the partners and sharing drafts of the brochure. Students will also send their community partners a student-designed rubric asking them to evaluate the working relationship and final products. Effectively doing/demonstrating all stages of the process means that course materials, technologies, concepts, activities are utilized in effective ways, improving student engagement and learning across the disciplines.
