Also make sure they are big enough to see well), and notes pages (all of what you say should be in the notes portion). Big thing: Your slides should be brief, bulleted points; however, you should not leave pertinent details off the slides. In other words, if you say something of importance, that counts toward the content side of things, make sure it's in the slide, too. Finally, print a copy of the NOTES PAGES (shows slide and speaker notes on one page) of your slide presentation. Turn one copy in to me (Ms. E).
