WHAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE POWERPOINT SLIDES?

There are three main elements to a PowerPoint presentation:

  • Text – allows you to reinforce your main points and keep key terms and concepts in the readers’ minds. Text should almost never appear in blocks, but it should be organized into lists of single words or short statements that are easy to grasp. Text could include definitions, key points, captions, or essential facts.
  • Images – illustrate or highlight your main point. Some slides may only require an image with a caption to provide a visual for whatever you are presenting orally.
  • Graphs or Tables – present complicated information or numerical figures in a clear and easily digestible manner.
