  8. 8. • A power point presentation is not a reading report here is a rather boring and a large block of text that is sure to turn off your interest and make you extremely sleepy. In fact I will be quite impressed if you read through the entire slide. This slide is really awful (or is it really good at depicting something really awful? ). Whew, this is harder than I thought to write this much gibberish…
 Even if you break it up with bullet points it still distracts and depresses the audience.
