Using an idea I borrowed from Mrs. Vicki Davis, we are in the process of having pairs teach us parts of the PowerPoint menu. Then we will apply all the skills we learned to create a quick, visual PowerPoint presentation.
This picture is NOT an example of a VISUAL presentation:

Too much text! Use images to make your point!!
In the Visual PowerPoint, we are targeting a Common Core Speaking & Listening standard:
Present claims and findings emphasizing salient (most important) points in a focused, coherent (logical) manner with pertinent descriptions, facts, details, and examples; use appropriate eye contact, adequate volume, and clear pronunciation.
Create a PowerPoint with visual impact using text, images and animation effects to present your interviews and your own opinion.
Choose from these topics:
- A dream vacation
- Favorite music, musician, or band
- September 11, 2001 remembrance (since you were maybe 1 year old at the time)
- World Series predictions
Use images with impact to show us what you learned from the people you interviewed. Also include your opinion on your topic. This should be a 4 slide presentation: Title slide, Person 1, Person 2, Yourself.
Choose photos with IMPACT!
