Transcript of Fritz's SKKU Pres Course
"What you say"
"How it's said"
"How it's shown"
For this assignment, you are a reporter.
- your job is to objectively educate the audience on a topic.
(The final presentation requires persuasion. This time, just focus on the facts.)
All presentations are informative on the most basic level.
Show the audience how something happens ~
from beginning to end.
Explain the steps of a process (chronological organization)
The world is full of questions and controversies.
Convince the audience to agree with you!
Topics to be revealed in week 7.
Take notes! Not everything will come from the book.
Maybe it's PowerPoint, maybe it's Prezi, maybe it's something you hold in you hands...
Regardless, how you interact with it
supports your message
Keep it simple and meaningful.

All skills support a
Preparation and Practice
must grab attention (hook)
should state the topic and purpose
likely includes a greeting
probably previews the main points
The BODY uses supporting details to help the audience engage with and understand the message.
The CONCLUSION should leave the audience impressed.
Don't give up! Don't let your energy fade at the end.
Restate your topic and purpose
Summarize your main points
Give a memorable final thought

Example Story Hook
When I was young, I loved playing outside. One day, my mum called me inside for lunch. I started to run but stopped dead in my tracks. I couldn't move. I couldn't blink. I couldn't breathe. I had come face to face with a black mamba, one of the deadliest snakes in Southern Africa.
Story to end
(Connected to the hook)
Every time I think back to when I came face to face with the black mamba, I can't help but shiver. I also can't help but feel lucky that my natural instincts kicked in and my body reacted to save my life. It's good to know that even when our minds fail us in times of crisis, instincts can protect us.
This is always the first step to any creative endeavor.
Brainstorming helps you discover your best ideas.
you write a sentence or develop a PPT, you need a plan.
Outline your best brainstorming and research. This will be the foundation of your script.
Begin to imagine the structure of your
1. Write your topic and purpose at the top
2. Space out the main points (leave room for supporting details)
3. Fill in with research and interesting, supportive evidence
(see page 10: Free writing, listing, mind mapping)
Research reveals new, interesting, and expert evidence to impress the audience.
and while revising
Includes drafting, peer review and revising
Also, this is when you will develop your visual aids and plan
gestures and verbal emphasis
(Tip: show these "stage directions" in the script - practice them while you rehearse your presentation!)
Keep them simple and easy to understand.
The audience should be listening to you, not trying to sort out complex, distracting PPT slides.
Practice and practice some more!
Practice with a friend, practice in front of a mirror, or practice while recording with your cell phone.
Memory is just the beginning. Engaging presentations need practiced physical and verbal skills too.
Use note cards! Don't be dependent on the script - develop trust in yourself to improvise.
Recordings will help you see and hear yourself from the "audience's perspective".
help between details ~
add cohesion and clarity between main ideas and script sections.
See page 26-27
Memorable final thought
Textbook p.35 recommends:
Call to action
Useful tip: Making a connection to the hook will remind the audience where you started and will complement clean, efficient organization.

Emphasis is an important part of your message.
Emphasis can be demonstrated with volume, pace, stretching and pauses.
Enunciation and inflection also add emphasis by charging words with attention and emotion.
can entirely change the meaning of a sentence.
Think about the meaning. What word(s) would you stress?
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education. (Mark Twain)
A person who never made a mistake, never tried anything new. (Einstein)
I hear and I forget. I see and I believe. I do and I understand. (Confucius)

You and a partner will prepare a 5-6 minute presentation that will educate and inform your classmates on one of the topics below.
Choose from the following topics:
* An environmental disaster
* An engineering marvel (not smartphone)
* A person who is famous for the wrong reasons
* A person who inspires others to achieve
Work with a partner to brainstorm, organize and script a presentation that engages the audience with creative content that focuses on an interesting topic. Each partner should speak for about 2.5~3min.
Make a simple PPT of 3~6 slides using pictures only.
Do not use video, text, graphs or charts in this first presentation.
We will study more advanced visual aids and the skills needed to interact with visual aids later this semester.

The purpose of ALL presentations
is to engage and inform an audience.
Tips for planning for the Demo Presentation:
• Don’t choose a topic too technical or confusing for most people.
• Professional, practical topics can be really engaging ~ but fun topics can
entertain an audience
and be more fun to develop and practice.
• You only have 5min.
Specific topics will also make your presentation more unique and interesting
to the audience.
Stand up straight
Face the audience
Move comfortably and naturally
Lazy slouching, leaning
Nervous twisting, shifting
Stiffness, lack of comfortable movement
Intentional, with Purpose
Always to support, and never to distract
Hands too high (usually because of reading)
Crossing your arms
Hands behind your back, in your pockets or on your hips
Touching your face and hair
A little of the above is not a problem ~ but shown consistently can be very distracting
...and there is no shortage of opinions and perspectives.
What is persuasion?
Know your audience!
Who are you convincing?
What is the persuasive strategies will work best in this situation?
Persuasion is the
of convincing others to do or think something.
This old greek guy says you need 3 things:
Logos, Pathos & Ethos
(Logical, emotional & authoritative appeals)
What persuasive appeals could be made in these situations?
1.Parents want their young daughter to eat a little more.
2. A father wants to encourage his son to study harder.
3. A campus skiing club tries to recruit new members.
4. A boy asks a girl on a date. She acts flattered but shy and indecisive.
5. Xiaomi needs a marketing strategy to sell a new smart phone.
(CONSIDER: Logical, Emotional and Authoritative appeals)
• Choose ONE topic that's broken into chronological steps.
A strong academic argument will recognize the opposition.
YOUR CREDIBILITY is improved when audience knows that you understand the larger context of the topic.
Example language to introduce counterargument
According to Dr. Waft of Marlboro University, smoking cigarettes helps to reduce stress and suppress hunger. Although he is correct to point out that stress and over-eating cause health problems, you should agree with me that the many health dangers associated with smoking are far worse than any benefits Dr. Waft could discuss.

Chronological Organization means "organized by time."
If you can easily change order of your steps in your presentation, you chose a bad topic.
"Step - by - step - by - step..."
Book example on p. 75
Emphasis communicates importance, shows enthusiasm and supports audience understanding.
