Presentation Guidelines

  • Need to present (not read) your presentation
  1. Number of frames/slides

    • Need minimum 14 frames/slides
    • (A Title Page will be the first page, and a Works Cited page will be the last page)
  2. Structure

    • Cover all 6 parts of the MLA Research paper structure
  3. Words per frame/slide

    • No less than 5 words; no more than 30 words
    • These minimum and maximum do not count towards smaller embedded frames/slides that have words within them.

    • Use the five quotes from the MLA paper in the Theory and Analysis parts of the Presentation.
  5. Works Cited

    • Need sources in Works Cited
    • List all sources on one frame/slide.
  6. Templates

    • Overall template must relate to the topic/subject of your paper
    • Do not use templates that simply move from one slide to the next, such as Power Point does
  7. No full sentences

    • Use fragmented bullets
    • (you must use full sentences that set up quotes and quoted material)
  8. Subheads

    • Each frame/slide should have a two part subhead, which gives the section of the paper and a descriptive title to what that particular frame/slide covers
    • Example
    • Analysis: Community and Titusville Playhouse, Inc.
  9. Counter

    • Create a counter for each frame/slide
    • Example
    • 1/15 , 2/15 , etc.
    • pg. 1 of 15 , pg.2 of 15 etc.
  10. Font sizes and colors

    • 2/2 rule
    • Restrict font types to one or two types
    • Restrict color of fonts to one or two colors
  11. Images

    • Images must pertain to the frame
    • Every frame must have one image, either as part of the template or as an embedded image.
  12. Sound effects

    • None. Don't use them.
    • Though you may embed videos with sound.
  13. Spelling

    • NO spelling errors
  14. Clarity of text

    • Post-It Note Test
    • Hold a 3" x 3" Post-It note at arm's length and step back from your PC until the Post-It is the same size as the screen. If you cannot read the screen clearly, the font size or font color (compared to the background) needs changed.

    • Things appear, things disappear. That's it.
