Powerpoint presentation | English homework help
We read the novel “The Sweet Hereafter” by Russel Bank’s. Now I need help with a presentation on alcoholism. I chose this topic and it is discussed in the novel with Billy Ansel who is an alcoholic. https://culturevulture.net/books-cds/the-sweet-hereafter/
This is the info on the assignment
Presentation to include:
· A statement of your topic and thesis about the angle your chose to research.
· One slide near the beginning that discusses where the detail appears in the novel and the impact that the detail gives to the scene in which it appears.
· At least three main supporting ideas for your thesis.
· 1-3 Details (facts, statistics, anecdotes, studies, evidence) from your research sources that develop your supporting ideas.
· 1-2 slides that reflect upon the author’s choice of the detail that you researched, and a discuss ion of how that detail relates to one of the themes of The Sweet Hereafter.
You presentation will also follow these general guidelines for best practices for presentations:
1. Use Preview/Present/Review organization
· On the first slide tell the audience what they will learn (Preview the main points you will make).
· Present your points in the same order as you did in the preview (Present).
· On the next to last slide go over your main points again, but do it in a different way than on the preview slide (Review).
2. Use a hook to grab the audience’s attention; do this first thing on the first slide.
3. Use a clincher as the last sentence of the next to last slide, so your presentation stays with the audience.
4. Use images, illustrations, photos, etc. to make your presentation interesting.
5. Use audio to present the material. Review the Speak Up presentation (or view the Text Version) before you record your presentation.
6. Include the audio script in the “Notes” section of the PowerPoint presentation.
7. Include a “Works Consulted” page (as the very last slide) that lists your sources in MLA format (this is the same as a Works Cited page, but rather than citing directly in the report, you list at the end the sources you gathered information from, since you paraphrased/summarized in the report, rather than quoting directly.) If you don’t remember how to create a Works Cited page, look at the Using the MLA Style Manual(or view the Text Version).
