IDS 402 Narrated Slide Guidelines and Rubric Addressing Issues in Wellness

Overview: In this activity, you will have the opportunity to practice the communication and technical skills needed for your final project. You will create a short PowerPoint presentation with oral narration using the PowerPoint narration tool. This will allow you and your instructor to check that your technology works for the final project, and to troubleshoot any potential difficulties before the project is due. This activity must be submitted in PPT or PPTX format for your professor to give you feedback on whether your technical components are correct. Prompt: First, review the Module Four resources, and then choose an issue in of wellness with historical perspective that relates to your personal and professional experiences. You can also select the same issue that you chose for your initial post in the Module Four discussion on historical issues of wellness. Then, in a couple of PowerPoint slides, address the following:

 Give some background information about your chosen issue.

 Explain the strengths of your recommendations and why they would be successful.

 Explain the challenges you would face when implementing your recommendations. PowerPoint: Throughout your short PowerPoint presentation, make sure you use effective multimedia and communication skills:

 Include a combination of text, visuals, and audio narration elements that logically flow with your presentation.

 Construct your presentation in a way that ensures the audio and visual elements are logically organized in order to convey your message to your audience.

 Make sure you provide appropriate supporting evidence in your presentation. Include your references in APA or MLA format in an additional slide at the end of your presentation.

NOTE: A headset or external microphone is recommended for better results when recording the oral component of your presentation.
