Building a Lunsford Presentation

Main content start

Ever wonder how a Lunsford presentation got started in the research proposal stage? Or how a student pivots back from the presentation to a research paper? 

There are a lot of steps that go into developing a Lunsford-award-winning presentation. Below, you'll find some materials that may help you and your students understand what student winners’ processes have been like when transforming their research project into a powerful oral/multimedia presentation. See below for a collection of the materials that go into Building a Lunsford Award winner: Research Proposal, scripts, slides, RBA and scaffolding assignments. 

Note: Student winners have generously shared their PWR 2 work for teaching and learning purposes in the context of our PWR 2 classroom. Please find the consent form for each student in their representative Canvas folder.

All materials are PWR-only and require a Canvas log-in.
