Design your slides for those receiving the information, not for yourself! \n
For the rule of thirds, imagine your space is divided into 9 squares. Things just look better when they&#x2019;re not smack dab in the middle of the space, off-center it a little, like the image on the right versus the image on the left. This strategy simply makes your slides and images more interesting.\n\nWikipedia\n
Nobody likes boring, make your presentation visually interesting and limit on screen text to brief annotations! Practice and use printed notes if needed during your presentation, never read off of the slide!\n
Note: One colorful image and limited relevant text. \n
Own the space and take control of the room. \n
Plagiarism is in short, using someone else&#x2019;s ideas or work and representing it as your own.\n
To avoid plagiarism, become an effective paraphraser and always cite your sources of information!\n
Read this article aloud with the class. Have students paraphrase the article above. Have them use SOMEBODY - WANTED - BUT - SO - THEN. Include at least one KEY quote from the article. They can work in groups of two, have them share out their paraphrased versions.\n

You MUST CreateWORTHY Presentations• Your presentations need to cover all of the following core skills at the highest level: • READING • WRITING • SUMMARIZING • PERSUADING
Relax - We Have a System• C.A.S.K • Compare - Compare your subject to something else, make analogies. This helps support your understanding of a subject. For example, if you’re writing about a story, you may inclue a comparison to some song lyrics that remind you of the story. • Attribute and Cite - Give credit where credit is due. Use Easybib to cite your sources of information and content. Students need at least four sources or citations per project. • Summarize - Paraphrase, never copy and paste! Use Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then. Think about the Three Little Pigs • Key Quotes - Important quotes, not just any quotes, but the quotes that get tot the heart of a subject. “Little pig, little pig, Let me in.” “Not by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin!”
