Research skills2

  1. 1. Research Skills: Day 2<br />Yesterday, we looked at finding information, but what do you do with it once you find it???<br />
  2. 2. Grouping Information<br />Find common elements in your research such as: plot, challenges, author, etc... and then designate symbols to represent each.<br />Go through your research and label each item appropriately.<br />Once your information is grouped, you can begin to write using headings.<br />
  3. 3. 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...<br />
  4. 4. Let's try another:<br />Sir John A MacDonald<br />
  5. 5. 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.<br />Step 1: re-read your points.<br />Step 2: group your points using circle, square, triangle<br />Step 3: use headings (your new main ideas) to group your points and be prepared to share your information with the class.<br />
  6. 6. Then, once you have the information all and the main ideas - a.k.a. the groups, it's time to put the presentation together!<br />
  7. 7. The HOOK<br />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.<br />

  9. 9. The OVERVIEW<br />Just like in an essay...<br />·Introduce your topic <br /> (what is it?)<br />·Reveal your point of view <br /> (why do you care?)<br />·Relate it to your audience <br /> (why should they care?)<br />
  10. 10. The Elaboration<br />This is where you give more information about your topic. However, you still need to connect with your audience and have a plan!<br />
  11. 11. What visual aids are you going to use?<br />
  12. 12. Power Point Presentations<br />·Expand on your points while speaking TO the audience.<br />·DO NOT read from the screen, OR from a print out <br />·Use graphics<br />·Do NOT fill the page with text<br />·Make them legible!<br />

  15. 15. Music<br /> Video Clips<br />Dramatic Scenes<br />Costumes<br />
  16. 16. The Ending<br />Ending a presentation effectively is as important as starting it with a strong impression. The ending should resonate, inspire, and connect!<br />If you feel your words can't deliver the appropriate punch, consider using other people's words.<br />Do not just say "I'm done!"<br />
