Here are a few instructions and specific parameters that you are to follow as you begin to construct your Research Project. First, I would like to stress that for this project you should use 6 sources/research materials, apart from your textbook.

1.) You should select either Plato or Aristotle’s view of virtue as your topic for this project.

2.) You should construct a power point presentation (PPP) that highlights your selected topic. Within the PPP you will need to include the following: an in-depth discussion of virtue (either from Plato or Aristotle), how it applies to modern day society, and include at two examples how this approach to virtue manifests itself in today’s society.

3.) Please use a Microsoft power point template. Do not use Keynote, Prezi or other presentation software as they tend to impact the deliverability of your PPP via the Drop Box function in D2L.

4.) Avoid using video and audio files within the PPP as they tend to make files too large to deliver as well.

5.) Please make sure to include BOTH IMAGES AND TEXT ON EVERY SLIDE to serve as the focus of your power point presentation.

6.)Please follow these guidelines when constructing your PPP: Your Power Point should contain at least 15 slides.

You should approach the PPP as an instructional tool–imagine that you are going to inform a group of strangers about the specific topic you have selected. You should include both text and images ON EVERY SLIDE to help clearly articulate the information you want to share. Be sure to include images that are clear and not blurry in nature. Also, the textual information to support, explain or discuss your topic should be well- developed and sufficient in explaining the image that it accompanies on each slide. Your textual work should be presented in paragraph format and not in bullets or in lists. Be thorough and clear in your presentation.

7.) Please include a Works Cited slide at the end of your Power Point Presentation that documents all 6 sources used. Please use MLA or APA formatting for this slide

8.) Pay careful attention to Grammar, Spelling, and Punctuation. Proofread your PPP before you submit it for a grade
