FINAL – PowerPoint Presentation
Your final will consist of a PowerPoint presentation on a Later Adulthood issue of your choice. The text lists various examples that you may utilize (see chapters 14-16). You may also choose one that is of importance to you as you view older adults and society today. Each issue should be based on later adulthood as defined in the text.
Your idea for your final must be provided in the week 6 module for approval.
You are to create and present your PowerPoint as if you are a Social Worker who is slated to present at a conference/seminar in order to educate, raise awareness and advocate for change on your later adulthood issue.
You can upload a video using Teams, iMovie, etc. of you presenting your slides, or you can use the voice over option within PowerPoint of you presenting your information.
You must have a title slide, minimum of 4-5 slides per numbered section below (in blue), followed by a reference slide (minimum of 14 slides). Make sure you use in-text citations in APA format for your slides just as you would with a paper.
Since this is your Final and is worth 100 points, I am looking for maximum efforts. I want to be educated, informed, and engaged!

Tips & Pointers – do not simply clump all of your information in one paragraph and slap it on a slide. Chunk up the information in an organized format with key highlights. I like pictures as it relates to the slides, but it is not necessary for every slide. You can even insert a video found if it is helpful and adds to your topic. Your presentation should not be you simply reading from the slides. You must practice presenting before you make your final video just as you would for an actual presentation at a conference/seminar.
Remember that this should be a professional presentation! What would you do to capture the audience’s interest?
