A total of three class periods will be allotted for completion of the research, composition of power point slides, and presentations. Slide must contain images and text relative to chosen topic as well as hyperlinks to websites used. You should name your slide using the following format (your first initial_your last name) Therefore, a slide that Sally Brown creates would be titled S_Brown. Completed slides must be submitted to the student work folder labeled Exley and your class period, so if you are a First period student, your work will be saved to a folder that is labeled Exley1st. Presentations of slides will occur in class on _ insert due date . Each student will be responsible for a 3-5 minute presentation of his or her completed slide. As you prepare your slide, type your name and any presentation notes in the “Notes” section below the slide. Print this, and use it as your presentation notes. At the end of your presentation, you will turn this sheet in, so it is very important to include your name on it. Presentation order will be random, so be prepared.
