Minimum requirements:  (electoral College)

at least 16 slides (including title slides at the beginning and a “Works Cited” slide.  Minimum 5-minute presentation, maximum 6 minutes.  Practice your presentation.  Timing affects your grade.

Creating a PowerPoint Presentation (See separate page for additional tips.)

  1. Put slides in a logical sequence, and save the file under an appropriate title.
  2. Do not use “fluff;” each slide should be necessary and contribute to the story you are telling.
  3. Do not let high-tech special effects distract from the story; use the presentation to enhance your speech, not overpower it.
  4. Make sure the background color and font have enough contrast because if it is too light or too dark it will be hard to read when it is projected.
  5. Do not crowd your slides with text. Slides should contain only brief points.  You will fill in the detail with your oral presentation. Textually dense slides are uninteresting and often unreadable.
  6. Include citations for all graphics, quotes, etc. Include a “Works Cited” side.  Include only the information you use in the presentation.
