create a text slide containing bullets, you are, in effect, presenting headlines only.
As the presenter, it's your job to put flesh on the bones of the skeletal bullets.

No matter where you are on the organizational ladder, the odds are high that you've delivered a high-stakes presentation to your peers, your boss, your customers, or the general public. Presentation software is one of the few tools that requires professionals to think visually on an almost daily basis. But unlike verbal skills, effective visual expression is not easy, natural, or actively taught in schools or business training programs. slide:ology fills that void. Written by Nancy Duarte, President and CEO of Duarte Design, the firm that created the presentation for Al Gore's Oscar-winning film, An Inconvenient Truth, this book is full of practical approaches to visual story development that can be applied by anyone. The book combines conceptual thinking and inspirational design, with insightful case studies from the world's leading brands. With slide:ology you'll learn to: Connect with specific audiences Turn ideas into informative graphics Use sketching and diagramming techniques effectively Create graphics that enable audiences to process information easily Develop truly influential presentations Utilize presentation technology to your advantage Millions of presentations and billions of slides have been produced -- and most of them miss the mark. slide:ology will challenge your traditional approach to creating slides by teaching you how to be a visual thinker. And it will help your career by creating momentum for your cause.

This is a book about teaching problem solving in all subject areas, not just math puzzles and problems. It includes many examples in language arts and social studies, along with science, math, and interdisciplinary learning. In fact, the procedures presented can also be applied to solving everyday problems of society, economics, politics, art, and literature. The authors show teachers how to recognize problems in every subject area and how to use them as teaching opportunities. Many of the problem solving projects presented are "hands-on" activities for students, and all can be adapted for students in all grades and ages. From dinosaurs, bubble blowing, and mysteries, to the founding of a new country, the art of argumentation, and the survival of the fittest, there's something for use with every student in every classroom.
