Prior to completing this assignment, read Chapter 1 in the text, the articles listed,
and review any relevant Instructor Guidance. You have been asked to speak to an
audience on the importance of the social factors affecting one’s experience of life. For
this presentation, create an interesting and educational PowerPoint presentation,
which contains a critical narrative that integrates aspects of the various theories
with your individual socioculturalexperiences.
To begin, create a PowerPoint presentation of four to five slides (excluding title and
reference slides). Please see the following instructions for creating your content.
Choose one of the following theories as your main focus and the lens through which
you will compare the other two: the biopsychosocial paradigm, person in
environment (PIE) perspective, and Bronfenbrenner’s ecological theory.
Research each theory fully so that you can effectively synthesize information
relevant to these topics.
Your presentation must include at least three scholarly sources that are cited in APA
format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. For help with finding scholarly
resources for your presentation view the tutorial on searching for articles from the
Ashford University Library.
Provide an initial slide with a summary description of the theory you chose as your
main focus. How does this theory show that your environment impacts your life?
Please do not include anything you are uncomfortable sharing with your instructor.
Provide secondary slides with summary descriptions of the other two theories. Be
sure to compare each theory to the main theory used in your initial slide.
Incorporate appropriate images, tables, graphs, or other visuals as necessary. Please
observe these general guidelines for your visual presentation. This link contains tips
for creating effective slide presentations.
Slides should be sequenced and organized clearly.

using Screenr.com. Include a title for your presentation in the description box when
you publish your screencast . Refer to the Screenr.com Quick-Start Guide for
Your presentation time has been limited by your host to between three and five
minutes, so you will need to incorporate as many characteristics of an effective
speaker as you can within this timeframe. These characteristics may include humor,
storytelling, facts, pace, and volume. Since there is no video of the presenter (just the
presentation itself), you will not have the benefit of body language, so be sure to
create a convincing screencast.
Copy and paste the URL link to your screencast into the title page of your PowerPoint
presentation and submit your presentation for grading. All sources used within the
presentation must be cited properly within the slides and included on the required
reference slide, which will be the last slide of the PowerPoint presentation. Due to
the time limit of your presentation, you are not required to speak or read through
the title or reference slides.
However, you must include your reference slide when you submit your PowerPoint
