2Make a title Page Name your presentation Make sure to include your nameAdd pictures related to the topic
3Introduce your topic Give key points about the topic Have either a universal Theme (background) including smaller pictures related to points you’ve talked about or, have your picture as the background.
4Use knowledge about your topic to create an argument that you intend to prove. Use evidence to support your argument (quotes, data, facts)Use points that your audience can relate to
5Rap up your power point Make a powerful closing argument Review what you talked aboutThank the audience for taking their time out to listen to your presentation
6Making it look goodMake sure that you use either a sharp universal theme (background) or, pictures that cover any white on the screen. WHITE IS BORING!!Make sure that the print is a font everyone can read. Be creative with font but don’t take it too far! Also change the colour of your text so that it contrasts the colour of the background.
7Making it look goodDon’t over write! It is great to have a lot of information and content but organize it into short point form so the audience isn’t overwhelmed with text. Remember a picture will give the audience something to look at while you share your information.
8Making it look goodBreak it up! If your text is taking up the whole page take half the information to the next page.Make sure your text is big enough for people to read from far away.Hyper linking can be very effective
9Making it look goodAnimation schemes! (entrance/exit of words or pictures into/out of the slide) these can be a lot of fun but make sure you don’t fall into the bad habit of things moving too slowly. The audience will quickly loose interest if they have to wait for your text if it takes too long.
10Making it look goodSound effects/ background music this is great to make a presentation more interesting but, make sure the music isn’t louder than you! Sure the audience might like the music but they have just missed everything you just said!
11Making it look goodGreat animation and effects can make or break a presentation. Make sure they help you and not hurt you!
12One last tipOne last thing that will help you when giving a slide show presentation is having a copy of your slide show in hands to read instead of having to read it off the screen. When you turn away from your audience it makes it harder for them to hear you and it also shows that you are unprepared. So if possible get your own copy and even practice it a couple of times so that you have better eye contact. When you’re better prepared you will use more body language. More body language makes a presentation more interesting.
