Learning Goal: I’m working on a communications multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.PART 1—Prepare an analysis of the four phases of the Tuckman team development model and define their characteristics. Create a PowerPoint Presentation. This is NOT a voice-over presentation and you do not need to include instructor notes.
For each phase of the Tuckman Model, please use this suggested guide:Cogent Summary of the phase being identified.
Relevancy- demonstrates the student’s ability to draw important distinctions between what is learned in the classroom and what is happening in the “real world.”
Student’s Reaction- demonstrates the student’s ability to think critically and formulate an informed position.
Your presentation should be a minimum of 12 slides. Additionally, you should have:Title slide
Use the PowerPoint’s Rules of Seven (For creating more effective PowerPoints):1. Follow the “Seven-by-Seven rule”a. Use no more than 7 words per line and no more than 7 lines per visual.b. If you need more words, make sub-points below the main point.c. Only present one main point with a maximum of six sub-points on a slide.d. Use your slides to emphasize a point, keep yourself on track, and illustrate a pointwith a graphic or photo.e. Keep your font size 24 or bigger.2. Apply the “billboard” testa. Each slide or transparency should be easily read and understood similarly toinformation is seen while driving.3. Use images that relate to and support your presentationa. Realize that people may forget lists, but they’ll recall images.b. Don’t overdo the graphics with too many or too contrasting in color.4. Make sure your presentation is easy on the eyes.a. Stay away from weird colors and busy backgrounds.b. Use easy-to-read fonts such as Arial and Times New Roman for the bulk of yourtext.c. If you have to use a funky font, use it sparingly.d. Think “thin” when deciding on line thickness and “discreet” when picking colors.5. Leave out the sound effects and background music, unless it’s related to the contentbeing presented.a. Make sure your audience has the ability to see and hear the presentation.b. Use slide transitions that pique interest. Do not get carried away with too many butdo use a variety in your presentation.6. Use the “one” principle:a. Limit each visual to one idea, one concept, or one main point.7. Put it to the one-minute test:a. If the audience will need more than 60 seconds to figure it out, it’s too complex.b. Proofread, proofread, and proofread. You’d hate to discover misspelling duringyour presentation.
