3. On the day of presentations, you must provide the class with an informational one page handout. You MAY NOT read aloud from the powerpoint. Powerpoints should only support your presentation, not BE the presentation.

4. If you work in a team, I want to know who did what, and it must be written down so I can grade you fairly and accurately.

5. You must use at least three reliable sources for your projects and provide a works CITED slide or list to me.
