Tips From the TAS:

  1. **** FOLLOW THE CRITIQUE SHEETS **** and practice in front of friends and get feedback!  Have them TIME you.
  2. PREPARE - practice at least three times in front of friends and get feedback.  Keep reading from notes to a minimum (just a glance).
  3. PAUSE for effect - should be obvious - two seconds of silence.
  4. Proof read your reflection papers, and follow the checklist.
  5. Objectives (how the audience will be changed) must be clear in both your presentations and reflection papers!  For example: "After my presentation you will ____________ "
  6. Arrive a few minutes early for lab - you should be in your seat ready to participate when lab begins.  If you are late -1% off course grade for each lateness.
