Chapter navigation:

  • Use the photo scene created in the last lessons to guide you when creating your PowerPoint.
  • Create a blank PowerPoint page.
  • Insert each photo separately and right-click on it. Select Format Picture, select the size tab at the top of the box and scale the height to 10%. As you scale the height the width will automatically change.
  • Position all your photos and then add Custom Animations from Slide Show on your menu bar. Custom animations and slide transitions will make your photos move onto the page.
  • For photos that overlap select the one that you want to be in the front and right click on it, select Ordering and then Bring to Front
  • Keep saving along the way!
  • While working on their photo montages students also worked on poetry. Their montages were to be used as the inspiration for their work along with the people and locations they photographed.
  • Brainstorm a list of adjectives that describe specific features in the photo.
  • Use a thesaurus to extend vocabulary
  • Sort and select interesting adjectives.
  • Discuss similes and metaphors.
  • Compare and contrast different verbs and adjectives.
  • Select simile, metaphor and at least 3 adjectives that best describe image.
  • Final piece should begin with a simile, then list 3 adjectives and end with a metaphor (this could be any form of poetry depending on your own objectives).
Adding Poetry to Your PowerPoint
  • Open your saved PowerPoint and Insert a textbox from the Insert menu or the icon, add one line of your poem. Type each line of your poem in a separate text box and then add your custom animations to each box as above. This will give the appearance that your text is 'floating' in over your photos. The animations that you chose should be reflective of your poem and photos.
