The PowerPoint should be at minimum 4 slides but can be up to 8 slides. To make your assignment accessible you are required to follow the accessibility instructions listed below. Your assignment must meet the following requirements.

Make sure to list your sources somewhere on the assignment. It does not need to be a formal APA/MLA format but we need to know where you got your information from. We HIGHLY encourage you to seek out sources that were not used in the class so far.
Step 3: Create a Powerpoint slide presentation using the guidelines below:
Your PowerPoint slides must be accessible. In addition to accessibility, you must include the 6 following parts to your PowerPoint slides. You do not have to present this to us or other students.
- Slide 1 – Describe/Define the Disability Justice Movement?

This is the basic outline. It is the bare minimum required. If you discover the need to include more slides in order to accommodate more points or arguments, you may do so. We suggest no more than 8 slides.
- All Slides – Accessibility
– You must check the accessibility of your Powerpoint slide deck prior to submitting.
– To check accessibility, go to “Review.” Then go to “Check Accessibility.” This will guide you in ensuring that your Powerpoint is accessible to screen readers and other assistive technology that readers may be using.
– You must include 3 separate sources of information within your presentation. Sources may include books, online journals, blogs, newspaper articles, disability justice or advocacy websites or podcasts, etc.
– Each slide must include its own citation of sources for information, as well as for images. Source may be listed on the slide itself or in the notes section underneath.
