I use these books to help students break the researching and reporting process into manageable steps.
The following books are available in the Teacher Store.

PowerPoint Made Very Easy! by Timothy Greene
I didn't think I could teach my 94 students how to create PowerPointT presentations, but they were so motivated by the integration of technology and reports, that they did a fantastic job and even taught me a few tricks about PowerPointT!
Oral Presentations Made Easy! by Paul B. Janeczko
Some students have it, and some students have to work at it. This resource will empower all of your students with the skills necessary to become effective presenters.
