Humanitarian Paper

FAQ Paper and Presentation

A humanitarian is someone who is devoted to the promotion of human welfare and the advancement of social reforms.  Most people would argue that a humanitarian, while not perfect, is someone who is highly ethical and moral.  Humanitarians are known worldwide for their good deeds and charitable acts even though they all come from a variety of cultures and religions.  The idea of helping our fellow man is a universal theme that transcends any differences in background or belief.

You and a partner will research your assigned humanitarian and present your findings to the class. You will also need to turn in a FAQ paper to me. Your paper should be written in 12 point Times New Roman, double spaced, and have a proper MLA heading. The questions may be in a numbered list; it need not be in essay format. You will also make a PowerPoint presentation, which you will show to your classmates.

Paper Requirements:

  • You will create a list of 10 Frequently Asked Questions you think the average person would need to know the answers to about your humanitarian in order to understand who that person is and what that person did in order to be considered a humanitarian.
  • You will answer each of the questions with a complete paragraph of 5 or more sentences.
  • Your answers will be paraphrasing from your research—no direct quotations

Presentation Requirements:

  • Create a PowerPoint presentation about your humanitarian
  • You will need an introduction slide, one slide for each question, and a reference slide.
  • You may not put the answers to your questions on the PowerPoint, but you must present the answers to the class. Only the questions should appear on your PowerPoint.
  • You may use clip art and pictures from the internet.

Example Humanitarian FAQ

  1. How do you format your paper?

Your paper should be formatted like this. It needs to be written in 12-point Times New Roman, double spaced, with no extra space after your paragraphs. Your questions should be numbered from 1 to 10, and each of your answers should be written in a paragraph beneath the question. Each answer should be a paragraph long – a whole paragraph, not two or three sentences! Make sure you elaborate on your question and explain it fully. For example, I could have just said “Use MLA format like we always do” for this question, but then my answer would have been too short, so instead I explained more and expanded my answer.

  1. How do you format your PowerPoint?

You can be as creative as you like on your PowerPoint, but remember that you cannot type the answers to your Frequently Asked Questions on your slideshow. You may only put the questions on the slideshow. You will need to know enough about your humanitarian to tell your classmates the answers to your FAQs without reading them off the PowerPoint. If you put the answer to a question on a slide, you will not get credit for that slide. Your PowerPoint is graded out of 25 points. You’ll get 2 points per question and 5 points for the overall creativity of your PowerPoint and how well you present to the class.
