Your presentation needs to have 10 Slides:
In this class we will be using the Open Office suite of productivity software. This is a free program that you may download on your home computer from http://www.openoffice.org. Download it at home if you would like to be able to work on your projects from home as well as at school. This Open Office suite will run on Mac and Windows computers.
The first thing that you will want to do is to get your slides setup. You will need to look at the slide requirements above and build ten (10) slides. Choose the New Slide button and choose different layouts for your slides. You can also use the Slide Master view to customize your theme (fonts and backgrounds).
Step 2: Research the Career Information Do a Google Search to learn all the different information that you need to make your presentation. Remember that you will get better results if you choose good keywords. Don't type an entire sentence or question into the search box. Pick the 2 or 3 most relevant Keywords that apply to the information you want to find. Also remember to copy down the addresses of the sites that you find your information from so that you can come back to them when it's time to reference your sources on the last slide.
I recommend that you write your script as you do your research. The script is the speech that you will give to the class as you show your presentation. The purpose of the slides is not to show your speech, but to show pictures, charts, and main points that support what you are talking about. You will need to have at least 1 paragraph of script for each slide. Change your view to show "notes" and type your script into the notes area of your project. This way each section of script stays with the slide that it goes to.
Having high quality and appropriate graphics is a big part of giving an interesting presentation. When searching for pictures online be sure to look for pictures that are at least 1000px wide.
This will make them look nice and clear when your presentation is viewed full screen. Also to your best to find the name of the person that took or created the picture and the title of the website where you found it. Paste this information in to the Notes section of your slideshow so that later you can add it to your References slide.
You must include at least 1 Chart and at least one Map in your presentation.
