      • We've all likely seen PowerPoint and other presentations where the speaker seemed ready to propose to the program. After all, it was clear that he fell in love with every wrinkle, special effect and other bit of gadgetry available. But the most effective PowerPoint presentations are simple—charts that are easy to understand, and graphics that reflect what the speaker is saying. Some authorities suggest no more than five words per line and no more than five lines per individual slide. "Don't gum up the works with too many words and graphics," Kerr says. "Do you really need to have everything up on the screen?"

      • Your first slide is your title slide. It should have a title for your presentation (Practice Presentation, or be more creative) and your name, grade, and today’s date.
    • Now You Try It—Remember What You Learned
      • Your second slide should include a graphic (picture or clip art) and some text explaining why you chose that graphic.
