Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
After attending an AA meeting you will create a PowerPoint presentation with 8-12 slides about your experience for the class. The title slide does not count in that number but must include location, time and date of the meeting. Share with us what you learned. You must post your Presentation on an AA Meeting to the designated Discussion Board. In the Discussion Board you must view and respond to the Presentation of an AA meeting from another student. I am never looking for anything generic from any of my students. What I am looking for is what your personal experience was from attending this meeting. You will be graded entirely on your ability to make me feel like I was sitting next to you at the meeting. I am looking for the specific stories shared by the people who spoke. Who Attended? Who spoke? What did they say? How did other people react? Who else spoke? What did they say? What was the atmosphere like? What did you learn about yourself? What was different when the meeting was over about you for having attended the meeting? How do you feel about people with addictions after attending the meeting? Is it different than before? How did this affect you as a human being? What else was interesting about the meeting? How were you treated at the meeting? Was this what you expected? Please be mindful of the attendee’s anonymity. YOU MUST ALSO RESPOND IN DEPTH (8-10 sentences) TO AT LEAST 1 OTHER PRESENTATION, 20 POINTS WILL BE DEDUCTED FOR NO RESPONSE. NOTE: You can substitute attending a meeting of Narcotics Anonymous (www.na.org) or similar group with prior approval from the instructor. WHAT I DO NOT WANT are slides with the history of AA, or the 12 Steps, or Sobriety Coins, or the Traditions, or the Prayers or a slide with quotations from the Big Book. I want your focus to be on what was shared by the people attending at the meeting. Introduction Slide or any Reference List Slide do not count as part of the 8-12 slides speaking about your thoughts on the AA meeting.
