- Practice your presentation in front of friends who have the critique rubric! Time the presentation.
- Follow the Rubric for the Persuasive Presentation. For example, Clearly distinguish between the Objective, The Reason you chose this topic, Credibility, and Preview.
- Presentations should be fairly academic and formal. Avoid "Swear words...Dude...Bro...Like".
is mandatory. You are needed in lab to evaluate speakers if you
are not speaking and do not have a lab role. Being late or
absent: -1% of course grade per absence/lateness.
- Be SPECIFIC about what the audience
should remember in the Restate Must Knows. Don't be CATEGORICAL.
Ex. "I talked to you today about How to bake an apple pie, what
ingredients to use, what temp to bake, and how to serve" is categorical
(BAD). "Today you learned to use fresh Granny Smith Apples and
Brown Sugar in your pie, to bake in a pre-heated 375F degree oven, and
to serve with a slice of sharp cedar cheese" is specific (GOOD).
- Your Preview should be slow and clear:
2-4 main points you will be going over. During your presentation
the transitions between these points should also be clear (for example
"Now you know about what ingredients to use for the pie, let's go on to
baking and oven temperature..")
- Source all facts not common knowledge. Source all images on (or just under) the image.
- Pauses need to be OBVIOUS (3 seconds or more) for effect.
- Have a plan B if something goes wrong with the technology (images printed to pass around, or show on DocCamera).
- If using presentation software: Go to lab early and pre-load your presentation. BRING FLASH DRIVE.
the Conclusion, give a clear restate-must-knows, then show/do something
memorable (for a powerful ending) and end with "Thank You".
worst way to end is to say "That's about it..." or " ah...yeah."
- Repeat any
questions asked of you at the end of your presentation.
- Use the Grading Rubric checklist as you are constructing your reflection folder.
