      • Write your presentation in outline view.
      • Play with graphics, colors and fonts in slide view.
    • 5. F o n t and c o l o r
      • Two or three fonts are plenty.
      • Pick three or four colors that look nice together.
      • Use high contrast colors for background and text.
      • Don’t forget about red/green color-blindness.
    • 6. ClipArt déjà vu
      • Be a ClipArt minimalist.
      • Your audience has seen them all.
      • Be creative; make your own!
    • 7. Practice makes perfect!
      • Practice where you preach so you can fix problems before you present.
      • Rehearse your timings.
      • Show it to a friend before you make your debut.
    • 8. Try It Yourself
      • Download the PowerPoint Overview packet at http://www.lib.umd.edu/groups/learning/handouts/powerpoint101.pdf and follow the directions to create your own PowerPoint presentation.
