Rasmussen University


This quarter you will have a Communication Practicum Project which will last all six weeks. The project will start this week. Students will work on practical application of their learning through application and analysis of a single movie from the last 50 years.

The choice of the movie is up to the student and cannot be changed after turning in the first "Level" assignment. The practicum concept is one where you the student will build on each week of work. Imagine a video game like Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, or even the Legend of Zelda. Each level brings you to new challenges, culminating to a final level.

The final level in the Practicum Project will be finalized in week five. You will use a screen recording tool, such as Screencast-O-Matic, and PowerPoint. Screencast-O-Matic is a free tool.

LEVEL ONE: Pick a movie and watch it, then using PowerPoint create a short presentation describing elements which you learned from this week's lesson:

  1. Introduce the setting, plot, and the main characters of the movie?
  2. Find three elements concerning the characteristics of communication from your text and course notes and apply them to the movie, make sure you cite your source(s) using APA.
