Dear Student,

Hi and thank you for using BrainMass. The solution below should get you started. If you are going to present 3 slides on Estes, this means that you need to plan out what should be in each slide. You can't put too much information, but you can't put little either. I suggest the following:

1. Intro slide - Who is Estes? A quick bio; discuss why he is important.
2. The main theories he has developed throughout his career
3. The importance of Statistical Learning Theory

As you can see, I have concentrated to expand on one theory alone. I have done so because it is a theory that has great impact in psychology. I have attached some images you can use. As for speaker notes, all that you need to do is use the outline as your peg and the information below to fill it up. Good luck.
