Media Assignment 2 COVID-19 Vaccines
Using credible sources (news or government, medical, science websites) for information and visuals, create a PowerPoint presentation that tells us what Canadians need to know about the COVID-19 vaccines.
I’m giving you two themes to choose from. Pick one only.
• Tell us how the the vaccine will be distributed in Canada (plans so far)
o Who is organizing the distribution? How is it going to be distributed? And how is it going to be distributed fairly? What do we know so far about when and how we can get vaccinated? Do we have to pay?
o This is a critical thinking assignment, I do not want you to treat this as a list of questions to answer. They are just a guide. Do research and tell me what YOU think is important. OR
• Tell us about the race for a COVID-19 vaccine
o How many are close to approval? Who’s developing them? What is the approval process in Canada and the US? How do clinical trials work? Is one vaccine (soon to be approved) better than another? Why? Says who? When do experts think we’ll have full approval for any of the vaccines in the running?

Guidelines for Media Assignment 2 COVID-19 Vaccines
• Point form only (unless there is a short, impactful direct quote you want to insert)
• Use images: eg. photos, diagrams, charts, maps (no video) to supplement your text
• I do not want to give you a specific number of slides. You need to figure that out. As many as it takes to convey your information. More than 10, less than 100. It’s up to you.
Steps for Media Assignment 2 COVID-19 Vaccines
• Chose a topic. Start reading today.
• Start with a simple Google search in ALL and in NEWS and in IMAGES: “COVID19 Vaccine distribution in Canada” or “How will the coronavirus vaccine be distributed in Canada?” or “COVID19 vaccines” or “The race for a COVID-19 vaccine” Read. Read. Read. Take notes, point form, highlights only. Note where you got that info. Understand. Become a bit of an expert.
• Then organize your notes. Choose the most important information only. What would Canadians want/need to know about this topic?
• Put the information in some kind of order. What info goes first? Then next? And next? What visual elements do I need?
• Start creating slides. Keep it simple. Enough text to inform, not so much it overwhelms.
• You are not design students. That’s okay, Power Point does most of that work for you. But do think about the overall look, tone, appearance of your slides. Make it all as seamless and professional looking as you can. Don’t use a PPT design that has a dark background, it’s too hard to read the text when you upload.
• Cite your sources. You can list them at the end, or put them on each page. Whatever works best for you. But make it CLEAR where the info came from.
• When you are done your slides, show them to someone. Talk it thru. Explain each slide. Have them give you feedback. Does it all make sense?
• Look at them a second time to proofread. Every. Single. Word.
• Due date: my original date for this was December 4th, I’m going to extend that. The new due date is December 11th, 5pm.
• Submit on Blackboard, in Assignments
• Grading: This is worth 20% of your final grade. Content/facts are worth 75% of this assignment. The presentation itself will be worth 25% (everything from design, use of images to spelling, etc.)
