How do I format a PowerPoint in SWS?

Should speaker notes be double spaced in presentations?


Strayer Writing Standards (SWS) can be applied to PowerPoints and other presentation and slideshow software. The SWS website link below provides a template and sample presentation in SWS.

Key Distinctions when formatting a PowerPoint

  1. Create a title slide, instead of a title page.
  2. Create a source list slide at the end or provide source lists on the relevant slide.
  3. Use font sizes 24 and larger, instead of smaller sizes used in Word documents.
  4. Double spacing is not required on slides or in speaker notes.
  5. Be sure to include in-text citations and a source list when using research. In-text citations may be on slide or in the speaker notes. Place them at the location of the paraphrase, quote or summary.
