10 I have shared with you the following items: If you need the link to this page, copy the following link and paste it http://www.southwesternsd.org/ This image is courtesy of southwesternsd.org.

11 A Storyboard Template… The Storyboard Template is for you to practice what you want to put on each slide before you start working on the actual slides.. There are also hard copies which you should have in your possession right now. This image is courtesy of Mr. Thomas Clark.

12 …Slide Show Template… On this template, you can pretty much follow the instructions on each slide, fill in the blanks and pass your project. I will show you this in more detail in a little while. This image is courtesy of Mr. Thomas Clark.

13 …Project Rubric… You will have your rubric on the desk beside you when you work on your project. This image is courtesy of Mr. Robert Housch.

14 With the items that I have shared with you, you need to: Open them Make a copy of them Save them in an American Cultures’ folder which you should create for yourself Then you may edit/work on them.

15 If you would like to be more “creative” and not use the template for a presentation, go to: Google Drive and to the “Create” Box/Button on the top left of the page… If you need the link to this page, copy the following link and paste it http://www.southwesternsd.org/ This image is courtesy of southwesternsd.org.

16 …Click on “Presentation.” If you need the link to this page, copy the following link and paste it http://www.southwesternsd.org/ This image is courtesy of southwesternsd.org.

17 You can get started here. There are plenty of instructions online of how you can add graphics, movement, etc… to your presentation, BUT THIS IS NOT REQUIRED FOR YOUR PROJECT. This image is courtesy of google.com.

18 Each presentation will be a minimum of five minutes and no longer than ten minutes in length. Stopwatches are usually used during sporting events, however, Mr. Housch will also use a clock to time your presentation. This image is courtesy of saturnstopwathces.co.uk.

19 Each presentation will include a minimum of three different sources that you will list in your bibliography. You bibliography will probably come mostly from online sources. The bibliography is for your main text of your narrative, not for your captions. This image is courtesy of mahalo.com.

20 In order to to achieve a “3,” each presentation will include a minimum of 22 slides and a maximum of 41 slides. Seeing a picture of a puppy dog should calm you down as you are panicking about how you will complete this project. Don’t worry. You can do it. This image is courtesy of calmdogpowerpoint.com.

21 For those attempting to receive a “4” on their project, they will go more “in depth” on their presentation and produce a minimum of 42 slides. They must accumulate all the possible points, and there will be no spelling errors. Unfortunately we no longer have letter grades, so I’m showing you this one for nostalgia purposes. This image is courtesy of rhouse.com.

22 Each presentation will be your original work. No plagiarizing. It is not too difficult in this day of modern technology to tell if you are copying other’s people work, word for word. Mr. Housch can easily copy your sentences, put them on the google.com search engine, hit “enter,” and see if your sentence comes up somewhere else. If you consistently have the same sentences or very close to the same sentences as other sources on the internet, that is not acceptable. Make this presentation in your own words. This image is courtesy of presentationtn.com.

23 Your Project will include 4 types of slides: These are four hands holding up fingers, not four slides. This image is courtesy of niemanlab.com.
