**Let Your PowerPoint Speak for you with pictures and sounds from sources other than yourself.**



  1. Select a person you wish to develop and present a historical themed PowerPoint with.

  2. Choose either a historic event or a historic individual to research, analyze and design a PowerPoint around.

  3. Research the historic event or historic individual finding factual data, make sure to site each source that you utilize within your design (the final slide will be used for this purpose) The PowerPoint must speak for you, with the pictures or the sounds that your group decides to incorporate in showcasing the event or individual chosen.

  4. Design a pictorial and auditory PowerPoint over the historic event or person. The following are the specifics for the development of the PowerPoint.
    1. The PowerPoint can only contain user-designed text (bulleted list, Word Art, etc) on first and last 2 slides.

      1. First Slide- Title Slide (historical event/individual name, with group members name at the bottom).

      1. Final 2 Slides-

        1. Next To The Last Slide = Summary of the topic (important facts/dates related to the event or individual)

        2. Last Slide = Sources that were used for research material, pictures or sounds utilized during the PowerPoint.

    1. All other slides besides the three mentioned above can only contain pictures or sound files that relate to your historic event or historic person. Use the pictures and sounds to share the story, showcase the facts and illustrate the significance of the historical event or person.

    2. Sounds can be found in MS Clip Art or other online sources. If you wish to use a CD or MP3 file for a song please bring it to class and have it approved first. You are responsible for any data cables needed!!!

    3. Slides/sounds should automatically advance/play once the slide show begins (no clicking allowed)

    4. The total number of slides will be dependent on the historical event or historic individual that has been selected. 25 slide minimum

    5. Slide Transitions should be included for all slides

    6. Slide Animations can be included where needed to enhance the presentation. The animations should not take away from the material being presented and should allow material to be presented in a timely manner.

  1. Present your PowerPoint to the class. Remember that you will just have to load the PowerPoint and music (if coming from a CD) onto the laptop and then select the play button. The goal of your presentation is to have the PowerPoint speak for you and convey the message or points that you want the audience to see, feel or hear.

  2. Each person within the class will be asked to write a short summary of the PowerPoint. This will allow every group to see if your PowerPoint was effective in presenting the historic event or historic person. **The summary of each groups PowerPoint will be worth 50 points per person).

  3. Your PowerPoint will be scored with the attached rubric.(150 points)
