Evaluation • This is a wonderful start to your Power Point Presentations at SanLee. May I make some suggestions to strengthen your work? • Citations are critical for 7th grade work. You have to give everyone credit –photographers, artists who do clip art, and writers. Learn to hyperlink your photos and clip art; you don’t want to lose points for missing those citations. • Write your slides out before you work in the lab; get some one to proof read and edit the grammar. Or go back and read what you typed yourself. (Look back at slide 3, for example, that is not what you were trying to express, is it? Allow time to edit. • You will be very good at this as you work out these details.
