Research skills2 Research skills2 Presentation Transcript

  • Research Skills: Day 2
    Yesterday, we looked at finding information, but what do you do with it once you find it???
  • Grouping Information
    Find common elements in your research such as: plot, challenges, author, etc... and then designate symbols to represent each.
    Go through your research and label each item appropriately.
    Once your information is grouped, you can begin to write using headings.
  • Let's practice doing some grouping together. We are going to look at a series of research points on dragons. Read through them and think about some possible groups...
  • Let's try another:
    Sir John A MacDonald
  • Now, you are going to go back to your groups from yesterday. You should have a list of points to work with based on the articles you read.
    Step 1: re-read your points.
    Step 2: group your points using circle, square, triangle
    Step 3: use headings (your new main ideas) to group your points and be prepared to share your information with the class.
  • Then, once you have the information all and the main ideas - a.k.a. the groups, it's time to put the presentation together!
  • The HOOK
    The beginning of a speech is like a stage entrance. The purpose is to gain the audiences attention, and to establish rapport and credibility with the audience.
  • The HOOK

    ·Introduce your topic
    (what is it?)
    ·Reveal your point of view
    (why do you care?)
    ·Relate it to your audience
    (why should they care?)
  • The Elaboration
    This is where you give more information about your topic. However, you still need to connect with your audience and have a plan!
  • What visual aids are you going to use?
  • Power Point Presentations
    ·Expand on your points while speaking TO the audience.
    ·DO NOT read from the screen, OR from a print out

  • The Ending
    Ending a presentation effectively is as important as starting it with a strong impression. The ending should resonate, inspire, and connect!
    If you feel your words can't deliver the appropriate punch, consider using other people's words.
    Do not just say "I'm done!"
