Part 2: Individual Presentation to the Class

You are then to create a visual presentation to the class (powerpoint, video, prezzie,etc) that will help teach the class what you have learned about your topic.

Tips for Success

  1. The powerpoint/presentation should limit the amount of text (use question prompts)
  2. It should be unique and interesting for your peers (please try not to repeat a previous issue)
  3. Please use notecards & lots of visuals (do not read from the screen and avoid a lot of text on the screen)
  4. Explain why you chose it (what’s your personal connection – personal interest, relation, etc)
  5. Explain how the topic relates to wellness (mental, social, physical, environmental, spiritual, emotional)
  6. Include a complete MLA list of sources (bibliography)
  7. Attach final presentation into the “Health Buzz post” in your google classroom
