Tips from TAs:

  1. Work on Powerful Endings
  2. Restate must knows should be specific things the audience should remember, not "categorical topics" you covered.  To say "Today I talked about pie ingredients, how to bake, and how to serve" is NOT a restate of must knows.  To say "remember use only Granny Smith apples, bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees F, and serve with brown sugar on top" IS a restate.
  3. Work on creative hooks.
  4. Remember to repeat any questions asked of you at the end.
  5. Make sure your have a clear PREVIEW and during your presentation transition clearly between the sections of your preview.
  6. Remember to dress appropriately (no jeans that are faded or with holes).
