Tell them what you told them

Follow A Logical Timeline/ProcessionThink of your thesisPoint A, B, and C in your thesis becomes:Point A, B, and then C in your paper/presentationSkipping or jumping around causes confusionWhich leads to other problems!
Adding Major PointsRemember: Dont fill the slide!Add major ideas that you can then expand onKeep like ideas togetherIf they dont all fit on one slide, keep them under the same or a similar title
