Using the information from your Final Paper, create a ten- to twelve-slide (excluding title and reference slides) PowerPoint presentation to accompany your research. Cite any sources you use in the presentation in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Your presentation should not exceed 20 slides.
Your presentation must be relevant, clear, and engaging. For tips on creating an excellent presentation, read this overview. For examples of some great presentations, visit SlideShare (http://www.slideshare.com).
