HW: Prepare a 1-minute speech + slide
If you look at the rubric you will see that it is important that your presentation topic addresses the question in some part and that you provide evidence to support your idea(s) and reference your source(s). You should also be sure the image you select for your slide is relevant to the ideas you discuss. Your image can be used as a piece of evidence.
- You should reference your image in some way (could take a few seconds or longer--if it is an important piece of evidence you will use).
- Be sure your image also has the source listed.
- Avoid adding too much text. A phrase, short quoted passage or a couple of bullet-pointed ideas is plenty for your slide. You don't want your audience spending too much time reading your slide--instead they should be watching and listening to you.
You are allowed to have notes (note card, sheet of paper) with you when you present. Try to avoid reading from your notes the whole time or reading from your slide (your audience is capable of reading the text on your slide).
- Focus on making eye contact and engaging with your audience.
- Emphasize words or phrases that are important.
- Pause for emphasis or dramatic effect.
- Ask a question of your audience to engage them.
