Students will use Powerpoint to create a multimedia portfolio of work completed during the year. The presentation will also serve as a yearbook where students will be allowed to import pictures of family and friends as well as narrate descriptions of the contents. Students will begin with an online lesson for composing slides from Learning.com. See specific objectives from that tutorial below. After the tutorial, students will gather for a group review of major objectives in creating a title slide, and students will create additional blank slides for the material to be imported throughout the year. See below.

Students will import excel files created in class of gender breakdowns in each class and use formulas to calculate the gender breakdown for the entire grade level and create questions based upon their graphs which they can share with students in other grade levels
to practice math skills.

Students will also import pictures of themselves during the last
four years of attendance at Harvard to document their growth and
serve as a writing prompt for a slide about themselves.

The focus of today's lesson will be setting up a title
page with student name, portfolio and a picture
along with animation.
