Slide Share Comment Guide and Checklist Directions: 1. Look at each of your classmate’s presentations using the list of links provided. 2. Choose five presentations to comment on. 3. Choose two comments on your own presentation to respond to using this guide and checklist. Things that you might consider when leaving comments about another’s work:

 Format: slides were easy to look at (color, composition, font)  Special effects (help or hindrance?)  Images (cropping, design of slides)  Text (font choice, size, color)  Content 

Information on slides was correct (definition, examples, illustration using creature)

Information was organized in a way that helped you understand the presentation

Slides were easy to understand

Considerations to make when writing a comment: Is your comment on topic? “An on-topic comment isn't just one that refers to the general subject of the original post. An ontopic comment specifically addresses the questions and points of the original post. If the original poster is asking why oranges are round, they don't want to hear about how you think bananas are way tastier than oranges. “http://www.goodcomment.com/ Is your comment short and concise? Is your comment friendly and polite in tone and language? Don't say anything in your comment that you wouldn't say to them in person. Remember: This is an assignment and your audience includes me! Does your comment add to the conversation? Will other people going to read your comment and think "Hey, I hadn’t thought of that"? Or are they going to think, "Wow, what a load of malarkey"? Remember: “Me, too!” doesn’t count as a valid comment.
