Present Before PPT

  1. 1. Don’t Kill us with your PowerPoint!<br />Strategies for Improving SGP Presentations<br />ADAPTED FROM PRESENTATIONS BY<br />David Jakes &<br />Ken Rodoff<br />
  2. 2. It seemed that every time a student stood up to present he would read everything that was being projected. He added nothing more than what was on the slide. At times, he would pause, awkwardly so, as he waited for the next slide to appear. It made me feel uncomfortable. And the audience felt the same way. The clock would never move fast enough. We were trapped, and the presenter just kept reading. <br /> --Ken Rodoff<br />
