    • Creating in PowerPoint is a nice switch from writing essays. But remember, it’s not an essay. It’s just too hard to read all that information while it’s up on a screen. If your instructor wanted you to write an essay, I suppose he would have assigned one. Instead, should show your audience talking points through key words, phrases and even images to convey your message. Because think about it, who wants to listen to someone read you a screen ?
