The claim you are supporting should be clear
Do not assume that I will “just understand” – make it a slide title (e.g. “Claim Supported: ________”)
The claim you are refuting should be clear
Make it a slide title (e.g. “Claim Refuted: _______”)
Relate your evidence to scientific topics
Clearly relate your evidence to specific ideas within the chapters we have covered (or will cover)
Your presentation must be at least 10 slides long
Note that your Abstract should be given on a single slide (If your abstract takes up more than one slide, those additional slides will not count toward your total of 10 slides).
Your presentations should not consist of text only
Use images, videos, tables, and graphs to support your points.
In general, try to follow the 7×7 rule
No more than 7 bullets per slide, no more than 7 words per bullet)
Do not use this as an excuse to avoid writing complete sentences! Sentences longer than 7 words are perfectly acceptable when needed
Check your spelling, punctuation, and grammar
This is probably the most overlooked aspect of the Semester Project – you will lose points for incorrect spelling, punctuation, and grammar
Your presentation should end with a Works Cited page with a full set of references
You must have at least one peer-reviewed source among your references (ideally, all of your references should be peer-reviewed, but I wont deduct points if they are not)
Remember to cite your sources on each slide to show where you used them
