Format: You prepare and conduct an individual presentation (10 minutes).

Guidelines: Please follow the Guidelines in the section for your presentation: ï‚· The delivery of your Power Point presentation (8-10 slides) needs to be 10 minutes in length. On each slide, please keep the amount of text to a minimum. For example, an approach with two to three lines with one to three words per line is usually considered professional in the U.S. and required for this presentation. ï‚·

Visual Aid: You must have a Power Point for your presentation. Use two or three bullet points (lines) with two or three words in general to limit the amount of language in your Power Point so that the audience focuses on you, the presenter. Images/Photos/Clip Art: You are required to use your own original photography and/or art work. Taking a picture of only the cover of your book could likely constitute a copyright violation. If your book is in a setting with other items, e.g. on a desk with a coffee cup, etc., it would likely be okay to include in your presentation. In addition, due to very possible copyright violations, you are Not allowed to copy pictures, photos and clip art off of the internet because most are copyrighted. You must use your own original work.
