*Focus on tasks to complete them with a short time allowance
We are taking the research/presentation assignment to a new level of quality. Just as we’ve learned and have been practicing, presentations must have:
*Short, to the point wording that directly answers the research question.
*Color used as a tool, sans serif fonts and large letters
*Only 2 images for the whole presentation, which are proportioned properly
*Citations (URLs) of web sites used to find information on a slide at the end titled “References”
1. Open a new blank presentation and make a short “What’s important about___” three slide presentation on the topic assigned today by Mr. Litt (recent topics have been the Boston Tea Party and the Rosetta Stone). Use the wording that is shown on the image posted with this blog entry.
Presentations must have all elements listed above or will not be accepted for grading.
*Practice using presentations as a tool to make posters.
After we talk briefly about the cyberbullying topic of today, fake Facebook profiles, I am going to ask you to participate in a poster making contest.
1. Open a new, blank presentation. Decide whether you want your page to be “portrait” or “landscape”. go to menu Format>Page and click the Page tab. There you can choose which way to orient your poster page. Then minimize it and have it ready.
2. I want you to make a poster of what kids can do when they are cyberbullied. Look at the wording on the image posted with this blog entry. I want you to make a poster using those words or close to it. Put one image if you like
Remember presentation basics:
Use a sans serif font
Use color as a tool (opposites are blue & orange, red & green, yellow & purple)
Use large, simple words
I will select a number of posters that are the most well done, then select one of those by lottery and print it large scale for our hallway.
