Research powerpoints2

  1. 1. Intro/Conclusions, Powerful statements, voice, creating a quality paragraph <br />Research powerpoints<br />
  2. 2. Beginnings and endings…<br />Should explain the paper<br />Should summarize the main point(s) of your paper<br />Should start or end with a powerful statement<br />A startling statistic<br />A fascinating fact<br />An interesting quote<br />A detailed description<br />A thoughtful question<br />
  3. 3. Leading with a… powerful statement Your main goal: Convince people that this topic is important and that your person is worth reading about!<br />Pollution is a huge problem in our world.<br />Earthquakes affect many people in the world, but what causes them?<br />Hillary Rodham Clinton once said that “There cannot be true democracy unless women's voices are heard.”<br />What is global warming?<br />By this year, it is estimated that there will be over 25 million children in the world who have been orphaned by AIDS.<br />
  4. 4. Conclusions…So what???<br />Your goal: To inspire people, make them feel something<br />What do you want people to remember about your person?<br />Remind people of the main ideas.<br />Don’t just repeat them word-for-word. Explain their importance.<br />Add a powerful statement<br />A strong quote, a startling statistic, something you didn’t mention earlier<br />
  5. 5. The “voice” of a researcher!<br />Martin Luther King, Jr. did many good things.<br />I think Ichiro is the best baseball player, because…<br />You should dream big dreams too.<br />Martin Luther King, Jr. changed the world by using his words and peaceful protests to fight against injustice during the Civil Rights Movement.<br />Ichiro Suzuki has set a new standard for lead-off hitters everywhere, with his uncanny ability to produce runs and drive in runs when it counts the most.<br />By following Dr. King’s example, each of us can dream big dreams…and quite possibly see a world of change.<br />
  6. 6. Writing a quality paragraph<br />Topic sentence<br />Introduce the main idea.<br />Strong, specific details/evidence<br />These should support/explain the main idea.<br />Good transition sentence<br />Final thought about the main idea, a transition into the next main idea<br />
  7. 7. Creating a paragraph<br />In 1947, Major League Baseball’s Rookie of the Year was no ordinary man.<br />Though superbly talented, this player was also mocked and ridiculed by even his own team members…simply because he was African-American.<br />In his baseball career, Jackie Robinson also won the prestigious MVP award, and he even led the league that year in stolen bases.<br />In 1949, Robinson’s impressive batting average of .349 let everyone know what a valuable player he was. <br />Jackie Robinson’s diligence to play hard – with or without the support of others – made him more than a great baseball player…but a great man as well.<br />
