ENG 315 – Justification Presentation, writing homework help

Note:  

Your presentation should follow Assignment 3’s guidelines and should be on the same subject (and use the same information) from Assignment 2.3’s final report.  You should treat this as though you were handing the report out to an audience and then presenting key points to that same audience live.  Follow the guidelines from the textbook carefully when formatting and developing the slides.  You must submit the final version in .ppt or .pptx format (no exceptions). 

The presentation must include audio or narration notes in the “Notes” section of each slide.  Failure to include audio/notes will result in a reduced score (highest grade available possible without narration is a mid B).  Review the posted videos for assistance.

This week’s discussion will focus on professional networking and normally creates quite an interesting thread.

Assignment 3: Justification Report – Presentation

Worth 150 points

Now that you have completed your report, it is time to design and present your findings. Your task is to organize and develop the three (3) parts (introduction, body, and closing) of an effective presentation, based on your Justification Report (Assignment 2.3). Chapter 12 in our text provides overall information on presentation format, content, and delivery. Please do not simply cut and paste your justification report content to the slides. Instead develop clear, concise content that enhances your presentation narration or notes. Assume that your audience has a copy of your report. Remember that your slides are meant to be highlights and your audience should not spend a great deal of time reading from the slides but instead listening to you present the concepts.

Create an twelve(12) slide presentation in which you:

  1. Ensure that your PowerPoint presentation fulfills the appropriate length requirements and professional style requirements.
  2. Open with an engaging introduction of the topic of your report. Include one (1) title slide and one (1) introductory slide.
  3. For the body of your presentation, cover the main points of your report. Create slides that reinforce and illustrate your main ideas. Follow basic design principles for effective slide content.
  4. For your single closing slide, finish with a memorable wrap-up statement that refocuses on the purpose of your report.
  5. Use PowerPoint voice-over and / or the notes section to present your slides.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Include a title slide containing the title of the assignment, your name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The title slide is not included in the required slide length.
  • Format the PowerPoint presentation with headings on each slide, and two to three (2-3) relevant graphics (photographs, graphs, clip art, etc.) throughout the presentation, ensuring that the presentation is visually appealing and readable from 18 feet away. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Slides should abbreviate the information in no more than five or six (5 or 6) bullet points each.
  • Slide titles should be based on the criteria being summarized (e.g., “Four Key Attributes,” “Responses to Budget Issues,” etc.).

Assignment Checklist 

  • Descriptive titles on each of the slides
  • Text contains concise, precise content
  • Graphics convey the idea described by the slide text
  • Statements in bulleted lists have a parallel structure
