Watchmen, History in The 1980’s

Paper details

Choose ONE of the following topics for your examination of the graphic novel Watchmen. Your examination will be presented to the class in the form of a Powerpoint. Please do not use Prezi or Google docs unless you are able to make presentations in these forms copyable and/or downloadable so that you may post your presentation on the Blackboard. (I do not want a link to the assignment: I want the actual assignment.) Your presentation should have a minimum of 10 slides, with a maximum of 15 slides. You will be arguing a point about your topic, so you must do further research on your topic, beyond any information presented in class.


You must prepare a Works Cited page in proper MLA format, separate from the presentation, to be turned in to me on the day of your presentation. You must have at least 5 sources on your Works Cited page, one of which will be Watchmen since you will also need a minimum of 3 quotes from the graphic novel. You will also need at least 8 quotes, a minimum of 2 quotes from each of your 4 sources. All quotes should appear on presentation slides. Please use proper capitalization, spelling, and punctuation. Please do not use pictures from the movie or other Watchmen graphic stories.
