All students will present the main information from their Compare and Contrast essays to the class on Monday or Tuesday. You will NOT read your essay. You WILL create an engaging visual presentation and share it in an engaging way using the PIPES.
This presentation is made up of two parts, a slide show and a speech. Make sure you devote time to both.
Remember, keep your slide show simple. Do not overload slides with text. You’ll be speaking, so there’s no need to have tons of words in your slideshow.
Here’s the useful slideshow from class:
This slideshow might be useful, too.
When you’re speaking, remember PIPES:
Projection – Talk loud enough for the person in the back to hear you.
Inflection – You’re not a robot, but you’re not on stage either.
Pacing – Speak slower than you think you need to.
Eye Contact – Look everyone in the eye at least once.
Stance – Stand naturally; don’t move around. (The podium will help.)
I’ll be using this scoring sheet as you give your presentation. Be familiar with it, and design your presentation slideshow with the rubric in mind.
