In Google Slides you will create a title page and then nine (9) slides to include the nine (9) statements. Each slide will include the following:
  • Policy Statement (make it as concise as possible) and Policy Number
  • Graphic or Image (copyright free/public domain)
  • Graphic/Image Source (small font size of the web address)
Layout and design is important and is part of the curriculum outcomes for this course. How can you make your slideshow more appealing and effective? Click here to read 11 design tips. 

Make sure to use these design tips and read these tips BEFORE you start designing your slide presentation. 

Having trouble making statement more concise? Do not overthink it. For example, statement #3 reads:

The sentence has eighteen (18) words. You can rework this to make it shorter. For example:

Signed permission is a MUST to post or release information or images. (12 words)
