Day Five Directions

Day Five


1) Add graphics to your PowerPoint slide show.

2) After each literary device slide, make sure there is an explanation slide that describes how the literary device supports the theme.

3) Insert any music or sound files. If you want to insert music, it should have NO LYRICS and not distract from the presentation. Formats that work with PowerPoint are MP3, WAV, and CD files. You can find many classical MP3 files  here. You can also go to Freeplay and find many MP3 files to download. (For both, right click on the file name and choose "Save target as..." to save file to your disk)

4) Work on hand-out
