The only thing with powerpoint that I would think is over editing would be using alot of animations/clip arts/sounds, basically any repetitions of the features.

Good luck with it

Main advice: DO NOT pack your slides with words.
Usually best to write a couple of words in bullet points and explain them. This makes it seem more professional.
Good Luck

These would be the things I would be skeptical about. Sometimes it is good to have some type of animation when your slides change, just don't overdo it. Some teachers like that you put in a few paragraphs per slide, some don't, I would put in maybe 1-2 paragraphs, depends on how much information needs to be covered.

I'm not too sure about paragraphs on a PowerPoint presentation. Usually, teachers prefer that their students use bullets/sub-bullets with simple, short ideas/explanations that can be expanded during the presentation, 1-2 pictures in a slide, consistent font throughout, simple backgrounds (nothing too flashy or distracting), and maybe using different lay-outs on your slides (Charts, Pros-Cons, Idea/Object X VS Idea/Object Y). It might be hard to do simple bullets for something like history and that kind of thing, but you just want to make sure you have your audience's attention focused on you while presenting; you don't want them looking at the projection because of the lengths of your points. That also goes for your transition/word animations. If you have words bouncing in and out like it's some sort of circus, the audience could easily get distracted.

Maybe he's right, and I look stupid now, but that's what I've been told.

The basic grid for Powerpoints would be 7x7. { As in 7 words across and 7 words down }

If you follow this you should be fine. Don't let it get to cramped and extravagant.
