Process
Step 1: Choose your topic
• Students can work alone or in groups of two. Only two people/groups per
  class will be able to work on a particular topic. There are plenty of topics to
  choose from, so you should not have any trouble selecting one that is
  interest to you.

• I will announce in class the date on which you will select your topic. Please
  preview web resources before you select your topic. It is also a good idea
  to have a backup topic, in case your first choice is taken.

Step 2: Research and Development
• You be given some class time in a computer lab to
  work on both research and creating your PowerPoint presentation.

• You will be expected to devote additional time at home, in the school or
  local library and during your study halls to complete the task.

Step 3: Presentation
• The due date for your oral presentation will be announced in class. By that
  date, you should have saved your PowerPoint into the public file and be
  ready to make your presentation to the class.

•   Practice, practice, practice; you are not just reading your PowerPoint text,
    you are making a well-researched, interesting, and informative
    presentation to the class.

Helpful Hints:
Here are a few helpful hints that might make your project a bit more
manageable:

• Choose your topic carefully; if you don't bother to look at the web sites
  before you make your selection, you might find your self stuck with
  something you are not interested in.

• Do your research outside of the class time and use your time in the lab for
  making the PowerPoint presentation.
