  • 16. Make some notes Body Here are some aspects you should consider when planning the main part of your presentation: 1. Sequence your ideas 2. Use signposting or signal where you are. 3. Link ideas, sections/make transitions http://people.engr.ncsu.edu/txie/publications/oral_presentation_skills.pdf www.myenglishonline.ca
  • 17. Make some notes Body 1. Sequence your ideas Here are a few possibilities for organizing your ideas: •logical; chronological order; •from general to specific; •from known to unknown; •from accepted to controversial; •cause/effect; •problem/solution. http://people.engr.ncsu.edu/txie/publications/oral_presentation_skills.pdf www.myenglishonline.ca
  • 18. Make some notes Body 2. Use signposting or signal where you are. Imagine you are driving along a road that you do not know – signs will guide you to find your way. This is the same for people listening to a presentation: they need signals to guide them so that it is easy to follow the presentation. In a presentation these signals or signs are expressions that help the audience. For example: first announce what you are going to say (“ I will give an example:...”) and then say what you want to say. In a written text this is not necessary but for presentations it is very important. http://people.engr.ncsu.edu/txie/publications/oral_presentation_skills.pdf www.myenglishonline.ca

  • 31. Practise! Since your presentation will only be about 4-8 minutes long, it will be easy to practise it: •Close the door and speak loudly! Imagine you are in front of an audience. •Time your presentation! Practising in front of a partner might even better! www.myenglishonline.ca Talk to Yourself
  • 32. Practise! Don't read your presentation. You can use short notes, but reading a presentation is unnatural; also, it makes it very difficult for your audience to follow. Don't try to cover too much material. Remember you only have 4-8 minutes. Important Don’ts www.myenglishonline.ca
  • 33. Practise! Important Do’s Be organized! The more organized and focused your presentation is, the more relaxed you'll feel. Breathe! (It helps you relax.) Speak clearly, slowly and at an appropriate level for your audience. Use vocabulary that is appropriate for your audience. www.myenglishonline.ca
  • 34. Your e-Facilitators and classmates look forward to listening to your presentation as part of our Online Folklorama marathon during Week 6 Rendezvous. Make sure that you contact your e-Facilitator if you have a PowerPoint slideshow to accompany your talk. Ready to go? www.myenglishonline.ca
