Student Manual for Power Point
Power Point is a tool that can be used to create a presentation. The Power Point program allows the user to make slides that can have both a text, graphics and connect this slide with other slides, thus producing a slide show. This document will familiarize the student with terms and give direction for the student to produce their own presentation with little or no intervention from a teacher. Menu Bar is the bar at the top of the desktop. Work area is the active space on the slide where text is being typed or a graphic is being placed. Work area is the space you are working in. Scroll Bar is usually found to the right of a direction. You may change the effects on the slide by moving the cursor in the scroll bar. Transition is the effect you will see when going from one slide to the next. Build refers to how text is incorporated into the slide Balloon Help is when you place the cursor over a button the compute will assist you by identifying the purpose of the button. Get Ready, Get Set Go ...... Start by opening the Power Point Program, you will find it under Microsoft Office. If the tip of the day pops up click on OK. Now you are ready to begin your presentation. Once you have started your program take time to “save as” and give the program a name.

Step 1
You will see a slide that resembles the following. Here you must make a selection. The first 3 choices will provide you with an automatic pre-created format. Since this is your presentation and you will want to individualize it, I would suggest you click in Blank Presentation. This will allow you to choose the slide type that fits best in your presentation.

Step 2
The following slide will appear. Here you will be asked to select the slide you will want for your first page. Note the first slide is highlighted. Generally this is best for the opening slide. Click on this slide and click on OK. This will open your slide and create a work area for your first slide.

If the slide type you need does is not in this window you may use the scroll bar and scroll down to additional slides (see picture below). Select the slide that best fits your needs. To select the slide click on that slide and then click on the Button marked OK. This procedure will insert the selected slide into your slide show.

Step 3
Once the slide has been selected you may add text to it. To make an area active click on the area with your cursor. This will allow you to type text into the area. If you wish to move this work area on your slide, position the cursor on the outside boarder (not over a dot) click and drag the active work area to any position on your slide.

Step 4
To add another slide: select Insert on the menu bar and click and drag to “New Slide”. You will return to the auto lay out form (step 2). Select the slide you wish to insert into your slide show by clicking on the slide and clicking on the button OK

When you wish to view your slide show, go to view on the menu bar and drag to slide show. Let go and you will automatically see your slide show. By now you should understand how slides are added to your slide show. In Step 5 you will learn how to build text in a slide. This build command allows you to input information one line at a time when viewing your presentation.

Step 5
In your final project you may wish to discuss one topic at a time and have just that word or group of words enter a slide at one time. (See example below)

Original Slide you produced:

Slides would be shown in the following order in your presentation: Each word or set of words would be viewed after the mouse is clicked. This would give you the option of discussion the terms before the next term was displayed

Sometimes an attractive patterned background is desirable on your slides. To add an attractive patterned background select Format on the menu bare and click and drag to Presentation Template. Now select On Screen & 35mm slides. This will take you to the following screen.



On this screen if you use the scroll bar and scroll down you may find a very unique background for your slide. To insert this background into your slide show click on Apply.

Short Cuts
At the bottom of your power point program you will see the following symbols. These are short cut buttons that will direct you to the following: ( in order of occurrence) Individual slide view, outline of slides, slide sorter view, note page view, and slide show.

To add graphics
Once all your slides have been made and placed in your slide show you are ready to add graphics. Graphics may be selected from the Internet, the clipboard, clipart collection, or scanned. Once you have found the graphic you wish to include on your slide, copy the image. This will place the image in your computers memory. Go to the selected slide and paste the image.

To Delete Text Box
Click on the text box to make the text box active. Click on the border around the text box. Boxes should appear on the boarder. To delete this text box strike your delete key on the keyboard. The text box is gone. To delete graphics: click on the graphic to make it active. Next strike your delete key. This will delete your graphic.

A few things to remember:
     When you open the program you should save as soon as possible. Whenever you are in the program and have added or changed a slide, you should save your work. Avoid clutter on your slide. More is not necessary better. When selecting color combinations use care. On a light background light text will not show up well Dark backgrounds tend to distract from the presentation. Do not use fonts smaller than 18. Small fonts will be hard to save Do keep a consistency “look” to the presentation.

Depending on the version of Power Point the tool bar may be slightly different. However, if you familiarize yourself with each tool you will be able to select the appropriate tool for the appropriate job. To familiarize yourself with the tool bar, click on each individual tool and view the pop out menu. Also, the directions in this power point manual are for a basic presentation. They can assist the student to make a first time presentation. Many manuals are written for more advanced presentations, if you are interested you may consult other manuals for a more in-depth study.

Coupons are a valuable tool to decrease the cost of the grocery bill. Some stores double coupons while other stores do not accept any form of coupons. As part of the shopping trip the student should “cut coupons” from the news paper and be encouraged to visit one of the following sites and select any usable coupon (coupon that could lower the cost of a food item on their grocery list.)to determine if coupons do lower the cost of the grocery bill. Construct the following graph: Title of Graph: Impact of Coupons total cost of food products total cost of food products after _______

REFLECTION
Last semester, after Supermarket Sweeps had been taught, I realized one of the requirements was a Power Point Presentation created by the student. Students were sent to the computer room with little or no knowledge on how to construct a Power Point Presentation. With the guidelines for this Title 3 project, I knew it was my chance to revise an already great unit. I decided to create a manual that would assist the student in the production of their Power Point Presentation. This manual has been used successfully in 2 classes. Both our Social Studies teacher and English teacher had their classes use this manual. In both cases students were asked to gather and organize facts before they started to work on the power point. At the end of the class students were asked to give constructive criticism on the manual, ideas on how to improve the manual and make it more helpful. After each class improvements were made. In addition to the Power Point Manual I have suggested the introduction of coupons to the original Supermarket Sweeps Unit. Coupons are a valuable tool used to decrease the cost at super markets. Included in this revisions are a variety of suggestions on how to obtain coupons. A graphing project to demonstrate the value. Over all, this project in completion has been a benefit to both our students and teachers. I hope you will find benefit in this unit.
