ASSIGNMENT

Choose two categories of natural resources (i.e., plants, animals, soil, minerals, air, water, or any one of the specific energy sources). Then conduct your own research of primary literature (peer-reviewed work from reputable sources, especially discipline-specific journals) and, in a short overview presentation:
Define the two categories of natural resources
Compare and contrast their use (historical, present, and future potential)
Discuss how the two categories are interrelated
List your resources, with a minimum of two sources within your work, using APA in-text format as well an APA-formatted reference slide at the end of the presentation
Remember that presentation slides should only contain one or two points per slide, with the general rule of fewer than 10 words per bulleted point. This presentation should be a maximum of 6–8 slides using 16–20-point font.

 

 

Guidelines for Effective Presentations: Your final presentation can be submitted in PowerPoint, Google Presentation, or Prezi. If you do not have access to PowerPoint, you can visit https://www.openoffice.org/ to download the program named Impress. It allows you to create a presentation with a free, compatible program through OpenOffice. A free word processor is also available at this web address.
There are various template designs that you can find on the web for your presentation. Consider your presentation from the perspective of your audience prior to selecting a specific style. Avoid distractions. Be consistent with the style of text, bullets, and subpoints to support a powerful presentation that allows your content to be the focus.
Each slide should include your key point(s). Do not place large blocks of text on the visual.
Use clip art, AutoShapes, pictures, charts, tables, and diagrams to enhance but not overwhelm your content.
Be mindful of the intended audience.
