Your PowerPoint must have a title slide with a title for the presentation and your name. You must have at least six content slides, a slide with citations for the images you include, and a slide with citations for your source material / documents. You will have, therefore, a minimum of nine slides.

Although this is a PowerPoint Presentation, you must provide full sentences rather than phrases. This requirement is in place of a written or audio script. Each content slide must have at least five sentences to explain your choice. Before beginning your explanations, you need to identify your person, event, place, etc. as a sort of subtitle for the slide.
You are welcome to choose your background, font, font color, etc. Your work must be easily readable, though.
