Doing World Builders  in PowerPoint

This assignment should be done with the group working together.

Check here for an overview of the course organization.

Lay out the text of your  PowerPoint presentation like this.

 Slide 1

This slide is the beginning of your presentation.

It is like the cover of a book.

It should be simple, clear, and inviting.

Slide 2

     Write an enticing description of the wonders to be found on your planet.

     This is the advertisement that will keep your visitors coming!!!  You may write this page later when you have explored the planet yourself.

     You may use more than one page for this.
Slide 3

     This is where you list the names of the members of your crew.  Notice that each crew member has a link to his or her personal page.

    You should also have a link to the table of contents in case your visitors would like to go there directly.

Slide 4

     This is an explorer's page.  It gives us a little information about one of the cybernauts on this voyage of discovery.  You may write anything that you like on your own page, and add pictures if you wish.  You may also use additional pages if you like.

    Note that this page can be reached by choosing a link from the Explorers Page.

  Slide 5

     Here is another explorer's page.  There should be one page for each cybernaut.  

     Notice the list of pages on the right hand side of the page.  These are the pages that this cybernaut will complete on her own.  Later there will be a link to each of these pages.

Slide 6

     Here is the slide for the third member of the crew.


Once you have your text all laid out, select a background for your slides and add graphics as appropriate.  Attractive appearance contributes to your grade, as does demonstration of understanding of the scientific concepts involved.  You may include additional material if you wish.

You will also make an identifying icon for your page.

Here is an identifying icon example for you. It should be a
transparent gif so that the background shows through around it.

It should not be any larger than a quarter and may be smaller.
See more samples at the CSULA Planets Page.

The identifying icon is due in class in Week 2.

 Grading will be for these qualities:
  A  neat, complete, attractive slides, good written introduction, English is correct, links work, turned in on time.
  B complete, links work, minor errors in writing, page appearance only fair, turned in up to a week late.
C  problems: incomplete, links don't work, errors in writing, turned in up to two weeks late
