PowerPoint Draft Instructions and Submission

For the PowerPoint presentation assignment, you will create an engaging presentation (dubbed with your audio narration) that summarizes and explains your chosen book. The PowerPoint presentation must condense the content to its most important real-world usable points.

For this DRAFT assignment, you only have to upload the well-designed slides; you are not required to have your audio completed by this time. I will give you feedback on design and content.

The draft is worth 25 points, and these are “all or nothing points.”  If you turn in a complete draft on time, you get the points and the review by me.  If you don’t, you do not get points or a review.

 Make sure your presentation includes:

· Slide 1:  A cover slide that includes the title of the presentation, title of the book, name of the author, and your name.

· Slide 2:  An agenda slide that lets the audience know the main points that you are going to cover in the presentation. I expect that you will cover approximately (but not limited to) 5-10 key points from your book.

· Slide 3:  Slide about the authors. Brief background on your author.

· Slides 4-14:  Your key points. You can have up to 10 key points (one per slide) but no more than 10.

· Slide 15: Your conclusion slide.

At this point in your college life, I do expect that you know how to create a PowerPoint, so this class will not teach PowerPoint basics. I have, however, included a few links to resources that explain some of the ins and outs of good PowerPoint design and as well as the dos and don’ts of PowerPoint.

A few items to note:

· When you are putting together your presentation, think about your purpose as twofold: informational and persuasive. You are providing the information to the class for their edification, and you promoting this book as something they should read.

· Images! Images and graphical quality are extremely important! If your content is amazing but is put into a boring, lifeless PowerPoint, your content will not appeal to your audience. Try these free image websites: unsplash.com, pexels.com, and pixabay.com.

· The presentation should be limited to 10 minutes and 15 slides.  You can’t cover everything in this time frame, so make sure what you cover are the true key points!

· Super important: Make sure that the slides and audio match up and that the slideshow plays by itself–meaning that once the audio is finished with the slide, the slide automatically moves to the next slide. If your slideshow does not play seamlessly, I will deduct 10 points.
