Very well done on your power point; it was simple yet educating. It is nice to see photos on every slide to enhance the points that you make. Also, the transitioning from slide to slide is easy to follow along with. Next time, you can try adding something like a video clip or link to furthermore amuse the audience. A lot was learned from this powerpoint such as the use of hobo codes. I like how you made a slide for the effectiveness of hobo codes in connection to the text. Also, the side facts on some of the slides are interesting to read. Now I know the hobo code for "Kind lady lives here". Where did the idea of hobo codes originate from? I'd like to know more about the history of these codes. Great Job!
This power point was very logically arranged, and was very informative without being crowded.
The arrangement was similar to the though process a person would have when asking questions. In the power point, it goes, Hobo Code, what is it, how is it used, who use it, why are there hobos, what does the code have to do with Fried Green Tomatoes, and why is it used in FGT.
An good addition to this presentation, is how when the words "Bum" and "Tramp" were defined to the side, separate from the main presentation, allowing people who don't know to read, yet letting the presentation not feel stuffy.
One sentence error I found was
"Usually have been forced from their homes due to the lack of jobs their" (4).
Overall the presentation was informative, simple and well done, but could use more emotion.
Your topic was VERY interesting, and your explanations of a few symbols were also intriguing. It's almost impossible to comprehend how so many people were homeless, how so many children didn't have enough to eat, and how miserable the job market and economy were. People complain today, but it really is nothing compared to what others had to endure in the early 20th century. My only recommendations would be to have the bullet points enter using transitions, because it felt like a wall of text just -BAM- appeared in front of my eyes; it was a little frustrating to look at. The only other comment is that the ending seemed a bit abrupt, it seemed more like just another comment, not the end of the presentation altogether. However, it was really fun to read, and just looking at the pictures was almost like trying to piece together a puzzle. Overall, great project!
Good job on the powerpoint Dalton! I like how you put a photo on every slide to help emphasize the information discussed on that specific slide and help tie everything together. your powerpoint kept me engaged unlike most powerpoints do! I also like how you had definitions of words at the side so if the reader didnt know the word he could just look to the side for reference! Maybe just give a conclusion slide to help end your thoughts next time! Good job all in all though!
Aren't emoticons the modern equivalent? Aren't they symbols that convey information across languages (or ability to read)? :)
