PowerPoint – Project My Spring Break

1. Create PowerPoint presentation from blank file; 2. Insert and edit graphics; 3. Insert Animation and/or Slide Transitions

You will need to make a slide show about your previous Spring Break activities. You can choose any Spring Break from your life. Know that sitting at home and watching TV is NOT slide show worthy for this assignment. Last Springbreak Presentation

Proposed Workflow:

Start with a blank slide show and name it Lastname_Firstname_My_Spring_Break.pptx.

Must have the following slides in this order:

Title Slide – Give your slide show a title and list yourself as the author.

What I Did – Explain what you did over Spring Break.

Where I Was – Talk about where you were on Spring Break.

How I Got There – Explain how you got to your Spring Break destination.

  • Why I Did It – Explain why you did the activities you did.

Who Was With Me – Introduce who was with you and why.

  • Would I Do It Again? – This is your summary slide. Show why you would or would not do this Spring Break activity again.

Every slide must have:

  • Animation and/or slide transitions on every slide! There must be movement on every slide.
  • At least one piece of artwork (this can be either clip art or photo) on every slide. This includes the title slide!!!!
  • One slide must have a SmartArt Graphic. You may add SmartArt to more than one slide. SmartArt does not count as artwork
  • Slides must have footer with file name, date, and slide number. HOWEVER, this should NOT appear on any title slides.
  • Slides must have a color scheme other than white background with black letters.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
