Tips from TAs:
must focus on how the audience will be changed. To say "today
going to tell you about...." is NOT an objective. To say
my presentation you will know (you will be persuaded to.......)" IS an
for EFFECT! Figure out where you want the adience to really
attention, and insert the pause (3 full seconds) there.
must knows must not be categorical. State SPECIFICALLY what
want the audience to remember. Say "remember touring sea kayaks
are long and thin, the best places to paddle on Lake Champlain are the
Northern Islands, and always dress for the water temperature and wear a
personal floatation device (PFD) ".
Saying "today I talked about what a touring kayak is, where to
paddle, and what to wear" is not
restate of must knows.
Powerfully! Figure out and deliver a memorable ending.

words: practice, and slow down will help reduce them.
