Carefully read and follow the instructions below, then choose one of the following topics and compose a ten – slide power point presentation. Think of the 10 slide ‘essay’ power point as an abbreviated form of an actual written essay. The difference is instead of ten sentences per body paragraph, there will only be five, simply because it is composed in power point format. Be sure to place sub -titles on each slide. I have provided the subtitles that you must place on each slide below. For instance, Slide 1 says “Subtitle: Opening Slide.” Place “Opening Slide” as the subtitle for slide 1. Place “Thesis Statement” as the subtitle for slide 2. Place “Introductory Paragraph” as the subtitle for slide 3, etc.
Your power point must formatted in the following manner.
Slide 1 – Subtitle: Opening Slide. The opening slide that you design. Feel free to place a catchy, appropriate graphic on this slide. This slide must also include your name, my name, class, time and the topic name.
Slide 2 – Subtitle: Thesis Statement. Place your thesis statement on this slide.
Slide 3 – Subtitle: Introductory Paragraph. In the introductory slide, there should be no more than five sentences on this slide. Be sure that the thesis statement is the last sentence in the introduction.
Slide 4 – Subtitle: Point One. Your first point must be written in complete sentence form. This is the first opening point that supports your thesis statement.
Slide 5 – Subtitle: Evidence for Point One. On this slide, provide some evidence to support your first supporting point. There must be five sentences on this slide.
Slide 6 – Subtitle: Point Two. On this slide, your second point must be written in complete sentence form. This is the second point that supports your thesis statement.
