Update on presentation guidelines in geography class

Video Village

Powerpoint-type presentations must follw these guidelines to maximize your academic credit:

* Please use worldbookonline.com in all papers and presentations. The state of Louisiana has paid for a subscription to this excellent source. It presents a balance to the free sites such as the participant-written wikipedia.org.

* Do not make a presentation without having notes - the script - from which to read.

* No more than 3 phrases on the screen along with the image! You must be required to simplify and edit the on-screen material.

* Always base your presentation on 2 topics and present it in comparison essay style.

* Include a relevant map.

* Don't forget the basics: titling, spelling, grammar, logic, multiple sources.
