Slide Structure Bad


This page contains too many words for a presentation
slide. It is not written in point form, making it difficult both
for your students to read and for you to present each point.
This slide looks much more complicated than previous
slides. In short, your students will spend too much time
trying to read this paragraph instead of listening to you.
