5 Themes of Geography Presentation

This presentation is made up of two parts, a visual part and a spoken part. Make sure you devote time to both. The visual can be a slide show, a poster, an iMovie, or any other visual representation of the 5 themes that you can think of.

SLIDESHOW
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:

SPEECH
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.)
