Directions This template is designed as a guide for your final project. It includes the minimum information that is required. Feel free to be creative! Include photos, video, etc. to tell your story. After completing all of your slides, you need to narrate the presentation. Use your slides as a guide while YOU tell the story. After you finish narrating, upload to http://www.slideshare.net/ and post the link in the ASSIGNMENT section of your course under Teachers in Action Service Project. This is a lengthy process. Do NOT wait until the last minute. Your project MUST be narrated and uploaded by the deadline. In addition to submitting it for course credit, you might share your completed project with the agency or group with whom you worked or upload to the serve.gov website.

Engagement Activities This section lists and describes the types of activities in which the UCF student was engaged, how often, and with whom. Photos of the UCF student engaging in the described activities should be included. Feel free to add a slide here to about how you got started or connected?

Participant Demographics This section should present the participants (e.g., age range, ethnic backgrounds, linguistic heritages, exceptionalities) with whom the student served. Bullets, charts, graphs, and pictures (only with permission) can be effective in delivering this information.
