After you have completed your final outline, you can begin to complete your presentation. It is important to remember that this rough draft will be revised. Therefore, at this time, you do not need to worry too much about spelling or punctuation. Instead, you should concentrate on the content of the paper, following your outline and expanding the ideas in it with information from your notes.
Your presentation should consist of three parts: the introduction, the body, and the conclusion. The introduction should state the thesis, summarize the main ideas of the presentation and capture the readers interest. The body of the paper should develop each section of the outline. This is not difficult to do if you follow your outline and work through your note cards (which should be arranged to correspond with your outline) using the information from them to support the points you are making. Whenever you use information from a note card, remember to put a number at the end of the sentence. At the same time, write the footnote as it should appear in the paper at the bottom of the page you are working on or in list form on a separate sheet of paper. Number your notes consecutively throughout. The conclusion should summarize your findings and restate the thesis.
Phase Four (Due March 30): Sample Presentation
When you have finished the rough draft, read through it again and revise it. Pay particular attention to the content and organization of the presentation. Does each paragraph/slide have a topic sentence that relates to the thesis? Is each idea supported by evidence? Are there clear transitions from one section to another, from your words to quotations? Are there clear transitions to indicate to the reader when one idea is ending and another one is beginning? Revision often requires many readings, each with its own purpose.
Phase Five ( finals week): Final Presentation Due
The final draft of your presentation may be completed on pow-toons, power point or prezi. For a single person presentation you should have no more than 11 slides (including one title and works cited page). For a group presentation you should have no more than 16 slides (including one tittle and works cited page). Allow about one minute per slide.
The bibliography is simply a list of your sources; it should follow the MLA style
Before submitting your presentation, be sure to proofread it for any mechanical errors.
***************if you do it in power point I can do my own thesis/1st page and the reference page since I already have that. My professor dont want it to wordy as we have to stand before the class and give the presentation
