Perception Power Point


Imagine you are an expert on critical thinking. A local high school wants you to present your knowledge to its seniors and asks that you create a PowerPoint presentation to specifically explain perception and critical thinking.

1- Create a PowerPoint presentation that explains the concepts of perception and critical thinking to high school seniors. In your explanation, address the following:

How all five senses impact perception?

The role of perception in critical thinking.

For directions on how to create a PowerPoint presentation, refer to the “How to Create a PowerPoint Presentation Resource.”

Your PowerPoint presentation should include the following:

  1. 8 slides (1 title slide, 6 content slides, and 1 reference slide).
  2. Put key points in bullets. The bullets are what the audience would see during a presentation. Remember not to overcrowd each slide.
  3. Elaborate on the bullet points in the slide notes for all 6 content slides. The slide notes section is where the speaker documents what he/she would say during the presentation.

While GCU style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected and in-text citations and references should be presented using GCU documentation guidelines, which can be found in the GCU Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a grading rubric that can be viewed at the assignment’s drop box. Instructors will be using the rubric to grade the assignment; therefore, students should review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment.
