Create your presentation by using PowerPoint (or keynote, etc) AND use Screencast-O-Matic to record your audio presentation.

The Topic was chosen ( For the presentation selection, I would like to do my project on The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.)


make sure that you are using power point and write a transcript of what I will say to let me record the presentation by my voice.

Each Presentation Must Include:

  • At least 1 image (creatively labeled and images cited) of high quality of the entire structure. (This would mean that you would go and photograph the courthouse)
  • At least 4 images (creatively labeled and images cited) of high quality detailing the structural elements (for example, a column would also discuss its capitals, any fluting, etc) from different distances or viewpoints. (Again, you would include more detailed photographs of the columns, pediment, entablature)
  • 3-4 minute voice presentation by each student introducing the structure, its architect, and location, then a detailed description of the structure using pertinent architectural terminology. Additionally, discuss the structure’s art historical significance by including a specific classical structure that we’ve discussed in lectures or in your textbook that serves as an appropriate comparison. You must use the correct and pertinent architectural terms.
  • 1 bibliography in MLA format included at the end of your presentation. This can be a slide.
  • Images and slides must be labeled (and cited) with detailed information of the image being discussed.
  • Student’s full name embedded in file name

Please note: Students must use their own words and cannot read or recite text from an existing webpage, book, or article.

**Image citation: Please include the source of each photograph/image on the slides of your presentation. For example, if you use a personal photograph, please include “Image by Jane Smith”. If you use a sourced image, please include “Image by Metropolitan Museum of Art”.

Create your presentation by using PowerPoint (or keynote, etc) AND use Screencast-O-Matic to record your audio presentation. All student presentations must be recorded using Screencast.
