Technically, the Grade 10 PAT specifies that the final presentation is part of Phase 2; there is no Phase 3 in the Grade 10 PAT. However, in terms of preparing ourselves for the PAT for Grades 11 & 12, it makes more sense to me to present in Phase 3. Be sure to read Module 5.2: Effective presentations (Jacobs, et al., 2017, pp. 282-285) in your textbook as well as Annexure C of your Learner Guide.

1. Outline

You should create a set of slides with the following headings:

  1. Topic (Title Slide)
    1. Include the same details as your Word Report cover page
  2. Contents
    1. Type out the Titles of each of your slides as a numbered list
    2. Each of the entries in the list must Link to the relevant slide
  3. Introduction
  4. (Background)
  5. (Impact)
  6. (Solutions)
  7. Findings
  8. Conclusion
  9. Bibliography
    1. Copy and paste the entries from your Word report bibliography
    2. Convert the bulleted list to a numbered list
    3. All URLs must be working Links

2. Fonts

Read the blog post Font faces for a formal report. Remember: consistency & legibility!

3. Design Template

Use a Design Template. Remember: consistency & legibility!

4. Slide Transition

Add only one type of Slide Transition to all the slides. Remember: consistency!

5. Animation

Add animation to at least one image or graphic component (such as a Shape). Do not overdo animation. Do not animate any textboxes (Title or Content).

Add Links on your Contents slide so that each entry takes you to the relevant slide.

Add a Link to all the slides (except the Title and Contents slides) that take the user back to the Contents slide when clicked. Be creative and use a meaningful symbol: 🏠
