1. If you haven’t done so already, create a PowerPoint (ppt) and name it “About Me.” HINT: You can re-save this ppt as “About Me” so you don’t have to re-type anything. 1. If you haven’t done so already, create a PowerPoint (ppt) and name it “About Me.” HINT: You can re-save this ppt as “About Me” so you don’t have to re-type anything. 2. Make sure your ppt has AT LEAST six (6) slides: 1. Title 2. Culture 3. History 4. Personality 5. Hobbies 6. Goals & Hopes 3. Read each slide on this ppt to get ideas for yours. Each slide has questions for you to answer. What do I do?
4. Find a picture to represent your answer to each question. For example, since I’m from California, I might add a picture like this to my slide show: 5. For each picture you add, include the “Image URL” by right clicking on the picture to copy it: 6. When you are done, organize your slides in a way that makes sense to you. Try adding animations and transitions to make your slide show “pop.” 7. If you finish today, begin writing about yourself in a Word document (save it as “About Me,” too). Use the ideas from the ppt to help you as you write. What do I do? (Continued)

Once you’ve got pictures… …add a few words to explain your images …re-organize your slides, if needed, to make the “story of you” make more sense; tell it like you’d tell someone in person …make sure you have URLs (web addresses) for each image. …try using the “Design,” “Transitions,” and “Animations” tabs at the top of the window to make your work look cooler.
