Ok, it’s presentation time! You are now the expert on your topic and you will be teaching the class about it. This presentation is made up of two parts, a slide show and a speech (show and tell). Make sure you devote time to both.
Day 2 students (E & F blocks) – Wednesday 13/03/13
Day 1 students (A & D blocks)- Thursday 14/03/13
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.
Go to the PRESENTATION tab above and look at the samples and suggestions.
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.
