About this book This book came about after over 6 years of teaching this course to inservice Korean teachers. I also used this material with middle and high school students and adapted it appropriately. I've continually refined, added, deleted and stuck with what works. I've always been pleasantly surprised how well this course worked. It was like magic. It really fostered confidence in second language speakers and I urge all teachers to try this approach with their students. The materials give students valuable time practicing and speaking in groups - culminating in a final day of presentations and celebration as they get their certificates. One important thing - click the photos to open the multimedia materials. Also, get additional resources and references on page 23. Simply put - it works. Your support by purchasing this book will help EFL Classroom 2.0 continue to be a place where teachers can get great resources and find the support they need for their teaching.

  4. 5. Module 1 PRESENTATION Pointers Let's Start! Do you fear speaking in public? Don't worry, you aren't alone. Let's listen and sing the song, "I hate public speaking". As you listen, think about what is the one secret to becoming good at public speaking.
  5. 6. Practice makes perfect! Being a good presenter is a valuable skill that will help you both professionally and socially. People who clearly present their ideas, feeling and knowledge, achieve much more in life than others who don't. A successful life is knowing the art of effective presentation! 1. Present Yourself! You will receive 3 "cue" cards from the teacher. On each cue card, you will write down 3 things about yourself. You will use these to give a mini presentation to introduce yourself to your group. Use the cue cards! Family Personality Likes / dislikes 2. Have you ever given a presentation? Look at the presentation card you are given. ( Appendix A ) Ask your partner these questions. Answer your partner's questions. Can you think of a famous speech from history? Why was it good?
  6. 7. 3. WHAT MAKES A GOOD PRESENTATION? Watch this "funny" presentation. Note 3 things that he could do better. ______________ ______________ ______________ PREPARE. LET'S BRAINSTORM THE IMPORTANT FEATURES OF A GOOD PRESENTATION. Content Delivery Message skills WHAT MAKES A GOOD PRESENTATION? Audience Other? Environment
  7. 8. 4. WHICH TIPS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT? There are many things you should do right, if you want to deliver a great presentation. In small groups, look at the teaching tips the teacher gives your group. One by one, discuss and write the tip under one of the following headings. NOT TOO HELPFUL VERY HELPFUL ESSENTIAL _____________________ _________________ __________________ _____________________ _________________ __________________ _____________________ _________________ __________________ _____________________ _________________ __________________ _____________________ _________________ __________________ _____________________ _________________ __________________
  8. 9. 5. Let's Learn: What Makes a Good Presentation! THE " PERFECT" PRESENTATION 1. Watch the video " PRESENTATIONS: More than words ." A) What tips do they offer? ________________________________________________ B) Watch the presentations. What advice can you offer each presenter? Were you correct? 2. Here are two more presentations. Offer some advice and see if you agree with the teacher.
  9. 10. 6. THE PERFECT PRESENTATION Garr Reynolds, a presentation trainer offers many tips for making a successful presentation. Here are his top 6. Do you agree? THE PERFECT PRESENTATION Garr Reynolds, a presentation trainer offers many tips for making a successful presentation. Here are his top 6. Do you agree? 1. Show your passion If I had only one tip to give, it would be to be passionate about your topic and let that enthusiasm come out. Yes, you need great content. Yes, you need professional, well designed visuals. But it is all for naught if you do not have a deep, heartfelt belief in your topic. The biggest item that separates mediocre presenters from world class ones is the ability to connect with an audience in an honest and exciting way. Don't hold back. Be confident. And let your passion for your topic come out for all to see. Also, don't be afraid to get personal, show your human side! 2. Start strong You've heard it before: First impressions are powerful. Believe it. The first 2-3 minutes of the presentation are the most important. The audience wants to like you and they will give you a few minutes at the beginning to engage them -- don't miss the opportunity. Most presenters fail here because they ramble on too long about superfluous background information or their personal/professional history, etc. 3. Keep it short Humans have short attention spans when it comes to passively sitting and listening to a speaker. Audience attention is greatest at the opening and then again when you say something like "In conclusion...." This is just the human condition, especially so for the busy (often tired) knowledge worker of today. So, if you have 30 minutes for your talk, finish in 25 minutes. It is better to have the audience wanting more (of you) than to feel that they have had more than enough. Professional entertainers know this very well.
  10. 11. 4. Move away from the podium Get closer to your audience by moving away from or in front of the podium. The podium is a barrier between you and the audience, but the goal of our presentation is to connect with the audience. Removing physical barriers between you and the audience will help you build rapport and make a connection 5. Make good eye contact Try looking at individuals rather than scanning the group. Since you are using a computer, you never need to look at the screen behind you - just glance down at the computer screen briefly. One sure way to lose an audience is to turn your back on them. And while you're maintaining great eye contact, don't forget to smile as well. Unless your topic is very grim, a smile can be a very powerful thing. 6. At all times: courteous, gracious, & professional When audience members ask questions or give comments, you should be gracious and thank them for their input. Even if someone is being difficult, you must keep to the high ground and at all times be a gentleman or lady and courteously deal with such individuals. The true professional can always remain cool and in control. Remember, it is your reputation, so always remain gracious even with the most challenging of audiences.

  29. 30. Appendix C Oprah Winfrey Eulogy for Rosa Parks "...God uses good people to do great things." Reverend Braxton, family, friends, admirers, and this amazing choir: I -- I feel it an honor to be here to come and say a final goodbye. I grew up in the South, and Rosa Parks was a hero to me long before I recognized and understood the power and impact that her life embodied. I remember my father telling me about this colored woman who had refused to give up her seat. And in my child's mind, I thought, "She must be really big." I thought she must be at least a hundred feet tall. I imagined her being stalwart and strong and carrying a shield to hold back the white folks. And then I grew up and had the esteemed honor of meeting her. And wasn't that a surprise. Here was this petite, almost delicate lady who was the personification of grace and goodness. And I thanked her then. I said, "Thank you," for myself and for every colored girl, every colored boy, who didn't have heroes who were celebrated. I thanked her then. And after our first meeting I realized that God uses good people to do great things. And I'm here today to say a final thank you, Sister Rosa, for being a great woman who used your life to serve, to serve us all. That day that you refused to give up your seat on the bus, you, Sister Rosa, changed the trajectory of my life and the lives of so many other people in the world. I would not be standing here today nor standing where I stand every day had she not chosen to sit down. I know that. I know that. I know that. I know that, and I honor that. Had she not chosen to say we shall not -- we shall not be moved. So I thank you again, Sister Rosa, for not only confronting the one white man who[se] seat you took, not only confronting the bus driver, not only for confronting the law, but for confronting history, a history that for 400 years said that you were not even worthy of a glance, certainly no consideration. I thank you for not moving. And in that moment when you resolved to stay in that seat, you reclaimed your humanity and you gave us all back a piece of our own. I thank you for that. I thank you for acting without concern. I often thought about what that took, knowing the climate of the times and what could have happened to you, what it took to stay seated. You acted without concern for yourself and made life better for us all. We shall not be moved. I marvel at your will. I celebrate your strength to this day. And I am forever grateful, Sister Rosa, for your courage, your conviction. I owe you to succeed. I will not be moved.

Or better, let them choose one topic. B) The trainees fill in the card and then standing, deliver a speech for one half of the class. This is great practice and can be done as needed throughout the course. ___________________________________________________________ Module 4 Presentations and Evaluations HOMEWORK Give each trainee a copy of the Presentation Cloze. (the one in the Additional Materials) They are to write a presentation and for the final session, deliver it in front of the class!
