Foreign Comparisons PowerPoint
Research another country’s educational system, and design an eight- to ten- slide PowerPoint presentation in which you:
- Identify the educational outcomes for students in that country.
- Describe at least two cultural and operational factors (one of each) that contribute toward the identified educational outcomes.
- Compare and contrast the country’s educational system with that of the United States.
- Explain at least one change either the selected country or the United States could make to improve its educational system, based on your research.
The PowerPoint should be designed in a visually compelling manner, since your peers will be commenting on and reacting to it in week four. To achieve this design, a majority of your written content should be placed in the Speaker’s Notes section (100-150 of your own words elaborating on the visuals presented in the slide).
Your claims should be supported with facts, research, graphs, and images. Each source must be cited in APA format. Note that graphics and sound can be effective, but should only be included if they directly support your point and are not overly distracting. Make sure to include at least three references in addition to your textbook.
