Work on midterm PPT Project
Remember, you should use ideas gleaned form your work with the web as you create this PowerPoint presentaion. It's not the medium that matters, it's how you present your message.
You will need to pay particular attention to the elements of style that you have studied. Your project must also have a cohesive theme, and you need to make sure that your use of media furthers the goals of the project. In other words: images, sounds, hyperlinks, etc. are not decorative. They contribute meaningfully to the pedagogical goals.
