| Your research will be presented in a Power Point format. Here are a few guidelines for creating your Power Point:
- Go to the START menu at the bottom left of the start-up screen.
- Select Microsoft Office, then Microsoft Power Point.
- Open Power Point, and begin a new project.
- You must have a Title slide. (This will be the first one, of course.)
- You will follow with four subject slides, as you have outlined in your storyboard. You must use the storyboard as a tool to plan what material - including facts, images, maybe even music, you will present on your Power Point slides.
- Make sure that when you take notes from books and web sources that you're also making notes about where your info is coming from! Not only will this be mega-important for your Works Cited page, but also will help you in case you want to visit the sites or review the books again.
- Be practical: don't over-do it. A great Power Point should not be complicated with lots of animation or fancy fluff-n-stuff. You can easily make it interesting without being overwhelming. Keep in mind that you want to capture your audience's attention and hold it -- with real info, not glam! P.S. Making the font larger will not make your teacher think that you have more to say. Be real. :^)
