Power Point Colonial History Class presentation

For this assignment we are reversing roles. If you were teaching a course on Colonial America what would you highlight? What people, events, or themes do you consider most important?

In the last module you assembled an outline and annotated bibliography of at least six sources you intend to use for Project 2. Now, in Module 7, you are to put together a Power Point presentation that focuses on eight themes that you feel are most important for someone to understand about the Colonial period. You may include images, graphics, and anything else that will make your presentation visually interesting and support your text. The EC library has numerous sources that will be helpful to you. Please make use of the History Research Guide linked into your course sidebar and contact librarians if you need assistance. In addition, you may consult all the sources we have used this semester.

In the last module you submitted an outline and annotated bibliography of your sources which you will use in this assignment.

For assistance in preparing your PowerPoint, you should go to the Atomic Learning Resources, which are available under Video Tutorials in the course sidebar. Search “PowerPoint” for available tutorials for different versions.

Your PowerPoint should include the following slides:

  • Title page (1 slide)
  • Headings for each of the 8 sections (8  slides)
  • Content for each of the 8 sections (2-3 slides per topic)
  • Conclusions about the importance of the 8 issues or events (1-2 slides)
  • Credits, including your references for all resources including journal articles, images, web sites, etc. in APA or Chicago style.
  • Visuals: Your slides should contain a font and background which do not detract from the presentation and images (with proper citations) when necessary to enhance your content
