Justification of Lesson Plan
Design Color
 

The lesson plan derives from a collaboration of my professional graphic designer presentation experience, serving the needs of a diverse group of presenters such as: engineers, scientist, educators, administrators, and students; furthermore, they are my reason and resources for producing this learning material. In review of this, I have discovered many presenters do not know the Key Concepts for PowerPoint® existence, therefore presenters are not using PowerPoint® software to its full value. For this reason, I present a lesson plan that will explain and illustrate an understanding for PowerPoint® existence or the ability to apply new skills to existing skills so partakers or presenters can create an effective Presentation.

Preceding presenters' behaviors exhibit as:

Presenter works without a Slide Master. Therefore, works without a Blank Slide then drops in a Text Box to add text. A Consistent look may not follow.

Presenter scales down pictures, applies many pictures, or uses both; and, inserts unknown picture formats. Therefore, makes for oversized files and possible image defects because images are not formatted or/and save out correctly.

Presenter uses uncommon font styles or many font styles. Therefore, fonts project or print distorted because Universal fonts are not present.

Presenter imports several different shows making for one new show. Therefore, several different master formats are present because slides are not reformatted.

Presenter presents, prints, or shares (by email or different computer) a presentation that crashes or does not open for the sightseer. Perhaps above tasks are not considered. Moreover, the server provider may have a size limit on email attachments.

Given that I have executed hundreds of presentations, the order of this lesson reflects events or a list of procedures that I act upon to execute the creation of a PowerPoint® presentation. Presentation Template or Slide Master Format creation is completed first, so additional slides will follow format immediately – no last minute formatting or minimal changes. Whereas, text tweaks are done outside the Slide Master or in Slide View mode so adjustments do not affect all slides. Mid-way into the lesson illustrates, Image Characteristics plus how to Format Picture and Image Resample, after how to Insert Picture. Since, most images are alongside text and may mimic text to implement a higher understanding of the learning material; it is helpful to have both resources presented to formulate accurate material. Since, revisions take place throughout most of the creation, presentation Wrap-Up tasks are discussed last. Issues illustrated here makeup pieces of the creation of a presentation; for example, the lesson discusses helpful ways on how to achieve context consistency especially due to revisions, on the other hand, some rules may not apply to all partakers. These points seem right illustrated last to avoid unnecessary time spent discussing and/or organizing a presentation.

PowerPoint® software by way of internet and PowerPoint® software is ideal as the lesson demonstrates tasks to gain a new meaningful experience on how to successfully communicate or design a PowerPoint® presentation. Even though the learning material is design for introductory level learning, advanced PowerPoint® skills are applied to instructions. Perhaps this will motivate the learner to pursue future lessons. In addition, lesson material offers partakers to work at one’s own pace. Chosen design enhancements are created to accommodate student individual learning styles as the partakers are from several domains.

Assessments are helpful by way of lesson projects and questionnaires; I can coach students to their best interest and help them achieve their goals and provide reassurance that lesson mastery has been achieved. In addition, questions are encouraged throughout this experience plus questions and feedback will exist at Lesson’s webpage for peer mediation and learning.
