Where to begin?
1. Start by electing group members to:
- Download a cool Google Slides template, one that fits stylistically with your topic, from Slides Carnival. Name the Google Slides project, then adjust share settings to “anyone with this link can edit”, then copy the shareable link into an email loop with all group members.
- Review the assignment sheet and split the work with your group members.
- Create your MCC NoodleTools account. Once everyone makes an account (don’t use your A# as your username for privacy reasons), you want to share your usernames with the group. Have the person who created the project in NoodleTools add everyone’s username as a “student collaborator” so that you can all work on ONE Works Cited page together, exported once at the very end to go on your final presentation slide.
2. Start by viewing my sample presentation on The Epic of Gilgamesh to use as a model. Please notice:
- All categories above are included and clearly indicated;
- The category titles on slides,
- There are images on every slide,
- Throughout, I used cool facts and new terms and concepts (with etymology),
- The in-text citation on each slide for all images and sourced information matches up with the Works Cited entires, just like an essay for a college class.
- There’s no plagiarism, because I cited EVERYTHING, both on the slides and on a Works Cited, not one or the other. Think about it: if I have a great Works Cited page, but no in-text citation on the slides, how will the audience know which sources match up with which info on the slides?
To access the MCC databases from home, log in using your A# & a password of MMDDYYYY of your birthday, then reset your password. Any issues, contact the library! Here’s more info.
