Area selected: Lubbock County, Tx

Using the soil survey you researched in Week 5’s Discussion, create a 20-25 slide PowerPoint style presentation (you must get your Instructor’s permission for any format other than PowerPoint). In this presentation you should summarize the important points of the soil survey (e.g., soil series, orders, and other important classifications dependent on site selection), integrating course vocabulary (e.g. cation exchange capacity, pH, soil polarity, and more) and important course topics (e.g. the five factors of soil formation as they specifically relate to your site, etc.) into your project. You can’t include them all, but make sure you present some of the scientific content of the soil survey. Part of your challenge is figuring out what to present, and what not to present and how to summarize and synthesize information. For example, if you pick an area with lots and lots of complex soil associations you might want to create some sort of summary table with soils down the side and soil traits across the top so you can easily compare and contrast, then do a slide or 2 for the most important or abundant of them to really get into the details of those couple.
Be sure to introduce your area of interest by presenting current demographic, economic, and land use data as well an any information (geological, climatic, landuse, or historical) that might influence the soil composition of the area. At the end you will need at least one slide titled “Future Impacts” where you postulate the future impacts to soils in that area, the agricultural usefulness of area soils, or other ideas that you find compelling, as well as a summary slide highlighting the most important points.
You should include images and maps in such a presentation for visual appeal, but remember to ALWAYS give proper credit where credit is due for the work (be it images or words). Images can be cited in the same way as text using standard APA citation style. Use appropriate citations throughout the presentation for each fact or figure shown. Information sources should be cited on each slide next to the information, just like you’d do in a paper. Then have a “References” slide at the end using the full APA style reference for each, these should be alphabetized. Image sources can be cited on the slide itself or at the end on a separate “Image Sources” slide – where they would be organized by slide number. Follow APA format for the reference citations both within your writing and in your references section at the end of your presentation.
