The Introduction slide/slides will identify the topic that is being analyzed. The topic needs to be described comprehensively, delivering all relevant information necessary for full understanding.
The Body Slides need to examine the empirical evidence related to the topic being explored. The following topics must be addressed:
Definition: Define the topic (Ex. If you are researching poverty, define the term poverty and other important terms associated with your research).

Social Responsibility: This section needs to address and articulate cultural insights and awareness with the topic researched. State the cultural understanding of the topic or differences that occur among cultures. State the significance of education and awareness of this topic among all cultural groups.
