Part I
Write a 600-750 word research paper given the topic, purpose, and audience information above. In addressing GDP, consider the following:
• Trends, forecasts, and statistics
• How GDP is determined
• Interpreting GDP
Part II
Prepare a PowerPoint presentation, consisting of at least 15 slides, to supplement your research paper and be presented to the Chamber of Commerce of an area of your choice. As with any effective presentation, the PowerPoint should be in color, have at least one chart, and clip art on other slides.
PowerPoint - Presentation Guidelines
The following guidelines for your PowerPoint presentation will be used to grade your work as well:
• Limit the number of words on slides. Slides are designed to supplement your presentation—not to be your presentation (in this assignment, it is to supplement your research paper).
o Avoid paragraphs
o Use bullet points
o Use succinct phrases instead of sentences
• Limit each slide to 6 bullet points
• Simple fonts
o Fonts "with feet" are easier to read (in a paragraph)
o Fonts "without feet" make nice titles
• Choose color combinations that make your presentation easy to read.
• Limit graphics to 1-3 per page. Too many graphics can be distracting.
• Bells and whistles tend to be distracting for the viewer. Make sure that special effects have a purpose. Proofread and spell check.
