Presentation script

  1. 1. Small-Scale Research Project The Presentation Script 1
  2. 2. The Presentation Script is where you present the findings from your research, this does not necessarily mean presenting an 'answer'. Research does not always lead to an answer a range of infor-mation (the findings) that may provide 'answers' but equally may remain simply material gathered.  The key to a successful presentation script is being able to clearly think through what it is you have found out in relation to the area of investigation and the project framework. Presentation Script 2
  3. 3.  All presentations have defined audiences, and it is useful for you if you can clearly define who it is you will be presenting to.  I would urge doing a presentation if time allows, as this is a valuable way of testing whether the presentation script works, and getting audience feedback  By defining the audience you can tailor the presentation to them, making you think about potential responses, and about what you can do to make the presentation more inviting and interesting for them. Presentation Script 3
  4. 4. Your findings should be formatted as the script for your presentation. This will therefore include both dialogue and any ‘actions’ in your presentation. Presentation Script 4
  5. 5. A lot of freedom in how you present your presentation script. Need to differentiate between your ‘dialogue’ and any actions Suggestions:  - Actions in italics and brackets   - Clearly identify SPEAKER (in capital letters) whenever changing from Actions to Dialogue Formatting 5
  6. 6. [SPEAKER walks into the room wearing a leather jacket and throws all the books off the table]  SPEAKER: This is apparently the way that films portray good teachers. As people that break the rules rather than conform to them. Here’s an example:   [Clip from School of Rock- 44.34] 42.57- Example: Representation of Teachers in Film 6
  7. 7. You do not need to ‘perform’ all of your actions even if they are written in your presentation script You are expected to show clips from all of your focus films and provide powerpoint/images that you may have used Actions 7
  8. 8. Use of Powerpoint (identify when changing slides) DVD clips Anything else visual or that needs additional explanation Examples of Actions 8
  9. 9. Should be short Should have precise timings Should be referred to in your script. Please ensure that you use clips for a specific purpose and either introduce or reflect on any clip used- the more specific the better. DVD Clip Actions 9
  10. 10.  [Clip from School of Rock- 44.34] 42.57- SPEAKER: While the message may be slightly obscured by the comedy of the scene, the film does seem to state that Jack Black’s Dewey Finn is a good teacher, someone who has been a positive force for the students. The students complaints in this scene towards Rosalie Mullins are accepted as truth.  Example: Representation of Teachers in Film 10
  11. 11. These need to be provided and will be sent to the examiner. Please avoid simply typing everything you are saying. Try to use it to provide visual aids Powerpoint Actions 11
  12. 12. Approximately 1500 words Short credited quotations can be excluded from the word count Reference to items of research must be made explicitly in your presentation Most of your items should be referenced (otherwise how do you prove they were useful) It is not an essay. Sub headings, bullet points and short pieces of connected prose can all be used Important Points To Remember 12
  13. 13. SPEAKER: School of Rock’s message is perhaps quite subtle, but it has been suggested by William Gould that a film like Dangerous Minds is much more explicit in its depiction of the ideal teacher (Item 5)  Example: Representation of Teachers in Film 13
  14. 14. Clips from films Stills from films Quotes from sources Graphs, charts etc Audio clips Snippets from you tube clips Images Flash animations Think carefully about why you are including this material, and what you hope to achieve from it. Remember: if it is not stimulating the audience, it should not be in the presentation What could you include 14
  15. 15. Examples Draft due Dec 15th you are strongly encouraged to start working on this now and try to complete it to the best of your ability as this will save time later. Finally… 15
