Creating Your Graphics Bank (100 points)
Open a PowerPoint file and name it thus: YourTopic.graphics.
Beginning with your Annotated Bibliography, locate at least 10 examples of graphic/visual argument or data that are relevant to your research topic, and are either in the public domain or license-free for your use, or meet the terms of "fair use" under educational terms. Aim for a balance of quantitative data and unlicensed images that you can use for illustrations. Other source: Google search of your topic + "chart" or "graph." (remember to record the source info!)
Save the images as jpegs and upload them onto PowerPoint slides. Below each slide, use an APA reference citation to record where the image or graphic comes from. If you clip charts or graphs from the sources you listed in your annotated bibliography, simply copy the APA reference citation from the original. No credit for raw urls.
When your Graphics Bank is complete and you are ready for it to be graded, save it as a pdf file and upload it to the appropriate dropbox on D2L.
RETAIN YOUR GRAPHICS BANK AS A POWERPOINT FILE FOR FUTURE USE ON YOUR ADVOCACY WEBSITE (UNIT 5).
