s researchers and multi-media presentation creators, you will be using many forms of technology in this assignment.
You will be free to use the library resources, which may include internet, CD-ROMS, laser discs, recorded television programs and video programs. Classroom resources will also be available; from print copy to on-line classroom computers.
As part of your research tools, you will be given a blank disk to store research materials. The teacher will demonstrate how to copy and paste research information from the internet into a word-processing program and then save it to the disk. You are encouraged to also save maps, graphics and photographs which can be used in your final product.

Divide and Conquer: Follow these suggestions for handling the task of organizing your group presentation.
- Each member of the group should be responsible for the development of one or more slides or screens of information.
- Storyboards: Use the following storyboard template to plan each slide or screen in your presentation. Use colored pens, crayons and colored pencils to help in designing your screens, text and graphics. Each screen will need a storyboard
- Decide on a uniform format (screen background, font style and size) to give your presentation unity and a professional look.
- Milestones: Set deadlines for each part of your presentation. Assign each member a milestone for gathering each type of media needed; graphics, music, video, text, etc. Then move into creating each storyboard. Again, assign each member a number of screens and a deadline.
- Group Meetings: Members should meet briefly everyday to review progress. A longer production meeting once a week can be used to iron out problems, make revisions or schedule additional time.
