• Crowded slides are difficult to read. Some experts suggest using the 5/5/5 rule: no more than five words per line of text, five lines of text per slide, or five text-heavy slides in a row.
• Limit each slide to one main idea. • Cite your sources utilizing APA 7th Edition Guidelines. • Make sure there is a clear color contrast between the background and the type. • Avoid using distracting features like moving objects, sounds or animations. • Do not read your slides verbatim. Deliver your comments in a more conversational presentation style. • Create a separate set of notes for your presentation. PowerPoint allows you to download a copy of slides
with the ability to write in comments. • Please review and practice your presentation before presenting. • Any font type is fine but whatever you use, be consistent and stick to one font type.
