Week 7: Planning Successful Presentations
This week, you’ll create a presentation based on the problem-solution essay you submitted in Week 6. For tips and advice on creating effective presentations, see the Week 7 Lesson, especially the assignment connection section, and Chapter 15 of our textbook. In your initial post, due no later than Wednesday, please share a rough publish of your presentation slides only—no need to share the audio narration.
As a visual reference, the organizational structure of your presentation should look something like this.
First Slide: Title—Your Name, Topic, Course, and Date
Second Slide: Introduction—Discuss why you chose your topic and why you think it is important. Provide a clear thesis statement.
Third and Fourth Slides: Problem analysis—What is causing the problem? Is it getting worse? What will happen if we fail to act?
Fifth and Sixth Slides: Solutions—Discuss a range of possible solutions. Select the best one and convince your audience it is the best choice.
Seventh Slide: Conclusion—Provide a recap of your argument and make a final call to action.
Eighth Slide: References—Remember to include references for all cited material and images used.
