For this assignment, you are a reporter.

(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.
Visual Aids
PowerPoint? Prezi? Something you hold in you hands?
Regardless, how you interact with it
supports your message
doesn't distract
the audience.
Keep it simple and meaningful.

Thought Provoking Quote
Colorful Anecdote
Ask a Question

See page 21
Tell the audience why they should care.
See page 21
Tell the audience how you will organize your main points.
Add a transition from the intro to the body.
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 South 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
Outlining tip:
1. Write your topic and reason 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.
Research happens:
after brainstorming
during outlining
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 tips
Memory is just the beginning. When all skills look practiced and polished, you get a better grade.
Use note cards! Scripts are not allowed in presentations - develop trust in yourself to improvise.
Recording video will help you see and hear yourself from the "audience's perspective".
Transition words

help between details.
See page 26-27
Memorable final thought
Textbook p.35 recommends:
Call to action
Useful tip: Making a connection to the hook will give the audience a sense of closure and could contribute to cohesive organization.

Emphasis is an important part of your message.
Emphasis can be demonstrated with volume, pace, stretching and pauses.
Inflection also add emphasis by charging words with attention and emotion.
pages 95-101
Notice how
word stress
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)

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.
Example video
The Good:
The Bad:
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
The Good:
Naturally understandable
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
The Bad:
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)
Group work:
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)
Commercial Examples

• Choose ONE topic that's broken into chronological steps.
(Pages 71-75)
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.
Opponents may say

counterarguments are still essential,
Chronological Organization means "organized by time."
If you can easily change order of the steps, you chose a bad topic.
"Step - by - step - by - step..."
Book example on p. 75
Emphasis communicates importance, shows enthusiasm and supports audience understanding.
THEN, when the body looks good...
4. Finish the outline with an engaging hook/intro and a memorable conclusion
Tips for the Informative Presentation
Use the partner format: Turn taking makes it more engaging.
Good organization will help both audience and you.
Record video while practicing with your partner ~ watch it.
Topic + Reason
Transition sentences

add cohesion and clarity between presentation sections.
"What you show"
To start many of our classes, someone will share a picture or quick video. The rest of the class will make a few notes of thoughts and observations. A few people will share their opinion with the class.
A brainstorming activity...
The purpose is to encourage individual creativity and confidence to speak in class. It's low risk; just share a sentence or two.
DO NOW example:
What thoughts do you have when you see this picture?
See page 16
Greet audience in a polite, friendly manner appropriate to school/professional situations.
Share your name
Keep the greeting brief, but offer credentials if relevant.
