Powerpointing to Your Career
This exercise is used as the culmination of a career research project. This is a technology-based, interdisciplinary project which requires students to do Internet research and prepare a slideshow presentation. If a career is not used as a the topic of research, then the requirements can be adjusted to fit the topic of consideration.

|TC2(9-12) Computer Applications||11. Critique digital content for validity, accuracy, bias, currency, and relevance. |
|ELA2010(12) ||29. Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on Grade 12 topics, texts, and issues, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively. [SL.11-12.1] |
|ELA2010(12) ||30. Integrate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) in order to make informed decisions and solve problems, evaluating the credibility and accuracy of each source and noting any discrepancies among the data. [SL.11-12.2] |
|ELA2010(12) ||31. Evaluate a speaker's point of view, reasoning, and use of evidence and rhetoric, assessing the stance, premises, links among ideas, word choice, points of emphasis, and tone used. [SL.11-12.3] |
|Primary Learning Objective(s):
Students will gain competence in preparing a digital slideshow presentation and in giving an oral presentation.
|Additional Learning Objective(s):
|Approximate Duration of the Lesson:
|| Greater than 120 Minutes|
|Materials and Equipment:
Students must have a copy of a previously completed research paper or research notes.
|Technology Resources Needed:
Computers, PowerPoint or other presentation software, floppy disks, LCD projector or other computer projection device
Completion of a research paper is required before the presentation can be created.
1.)Give students time to become familiar with the presentation software. Have students open a blank presentation and then the teacher or a knowledgeable student should point out the different toolbar buttons in PowerPoint. Students should be shown how to insert text, pictures, graphs, and word art using toolbar buttons instead of a template.
2.)Once students have become familiar with the program, they may begin their slideshows. The first slide should be the title page, including name, teacher, and career chosen.
3.)The next slides are filled in depending on what topics were assigned to be addressed in the paper. Examples would include salary, job locations, benefits, time to retirement, education needed, advancement opportunities, job description, etc.
4.)The final slide will be a works cited slide. This slide will indicate only the sources used for the presentation in proper MLA form.
5.)After all presentations have been completed on the computer, students can draw numbers to determine the order in which they will present. Each student will be required to present for three to five minutes.
6.)For the oral presentations, students will be required to elaborate on each slide, address the audience, and outline their career specifics.
7.)At the end of the presentation, students will be expected to answer questions from the audience.

for students with identified learning and/or behavior problems such as: reading
or math performance below grade level; test or classroom assignments/quizzes at
a failing level; failure to complete assignments independently; difficulty with
short-term memory, abstract concepts, staying on task, or following directions;
poor peer interaction or temper tantrums, and other learning or behavior problems.
