"What you say"
"How it's said"
"How you show it"
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.
PowerPoint? Prezi? Something you hold in you hands?
Whatever you choose, your interaction with visual aids
must support your message
should never distract
Keep your visual message simple, relevant and meaningful.
3 Components of Presentation:
Skills in harmony =
Preparation and Practice
must grab attention (hook)
should state the topic and reason
likely includes a greeting
probably previews the main points
The BODY organizes 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
See page 18
Thought Provoking Quote
Ask a Question
Why is your topic interesting and important?
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
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.
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!
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".
help between details.

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.
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.
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. A father wants his teenage son to study more.
2. A campus skiing club tries to recruit new members.
3. A boy asks a girl on a date. She acts shy and indecisive.
4. Samsung 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 recognizes the opposition.
YOUR CREDIBILITY is improved when audience knows that you understand the larger context of the topic.
Counterarguments in our final presentation
"According to some sources, smoking cigarettes helps to reduce stress and suppress hunger. Although experts are correct to point out that stress and over-eating cause health problems, you should agree with us that the many health dangers associated with smoking are far worse than any benefits."
Opponents may say

your argued position.
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
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.
are great to
engage the audience
and transition between main ideas.
Introduce competing perspectives.
Your job is to take a stand against opposing positions.
Show the audience that you understand the whole issue but choose to take a side.
Present the opposition honestly by pointing out strengths - but point out flaws too. (This will set up the
you prepare for your "winning" perspective.)
Suggested Presentation Plan
Creative intro (<2min)
State the issue, some background and your purpose, but save your powerful argument for later)
Alternative, opposing positions (<4min)
Your argued (winning) position (<6min)
Your most compelling evidence
Strong, persuasive conclusion (<2min)
Don't back down!
Using Visualized Data
(Graphs and Charts)
with a brief introduction
only the important parts
Keep the audience focused. Don't kill them with too much data.
1. Find a chart online.
2. Choose 2 members to point out something from the chart.
3. Entire group will participate in the demo.
