The presentation must be limited to 9 slides (pages), no more, no less. Be sure to follow the instructions above. All slides must be done as mentioned above. If any is incomplete, you will receive NO credit! Be sure your project is colorful & creative. Use your own words in the writing. I will check the writing and if it is copied from the internet, you will receive NO Credit at all! The writing does not have to be in paragraph form, bullets are fine. Spelling counts! Be sure the pictures are appropriate and add to the presentation. You must use different pictures for each slide. Do not repeat pictures. If you are producing a flip book, you must still have pictures and NOT drawings. For power points do not overload the presentation with effects, although you may use a transition between slides, however NO SOUND EFFECTS. You must work on this project alone, NO partners.
The power point projects must be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before Monday, October 25 at 8:00 AM. If email is a problem, you should be able to use the submit homework page on my website. Flip books can be handed in during homeroom. PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR AN EXTENSION, the answer is "I am sorry but no." Report card grades will be submitted on Monday morning and those projects not handing in on time will not be counted.
