Project : PPT Presentation

WHAT: Design and develop a 5-minute PPT Presentation that persuades your classmates to accept or consider the recommendations—and the criteria used to determine the recommendations—to the problem identified in your Recommendation Report.

Online sections of this course will add audio and appropriate slide-transition timing to the PPT and post it for viewing by Bb audience members.

HOW: Create a 5-minute PPT presentation using 7 to 10 slides. • If you are taking the class online, include audio and slide timing. • If you are taking the class on ground, prepare an oral presentation to deliver while showing your slides in class. • Use color, organization, syntax, diction, style, and tone appropriate for your audience (your classmates) and subject. • Locate, evaluate, and integrate information using revision strategies to demonstrate quality skills in writing, visual presentation, and audio/speaking. • Ensure your PPT presentation

o Introduces the audience to the  purpose of the Recommendation Report  problems that motivated the Recommendation Report o Discusses  criteria upon which Recommendation Report’s recommended solution(s) will be based  data/research findings  analysis of data against criteria o Concludes with a  summary giving significance of findings and drawing conclusion based on data/findings in the Recommendation Report  recommendation for next steps or course of action to be taken based on discussion in the Recommendation Report o Provides research references used in Recommendation Report

Please refer to your course textbook for tips on using PPT and for developing effective visual presentations. The final version of the PPT Presentation will be presented in class.

WHY: Companies dedicate resources to attract consumers to their products and services. Print and broadcast advertisements, social media, and community outreach are just some of the ways companies connect with people. A PPT presentation is another way companies communicate information and needs, and it can be an important tool for sharing ideas and pitching new products, especially within a company or targeted community. This assignment requires you to build a 5- minute PPT presentation that will capture the attention and imagination of your audience by introducing them to work completed for your Recommendation Report. The assignment expands your skills in effective use of visual presentations, enhances your understanding of appeals to reason (ethos, logos, pathos), and promotes your ability to craft persuasive and informative visual productions.
