FACILITATOR GUIDE 3.Presenters: Schools: It is hoped that the school counselors in every Indiana school will enable their students to hear this presentation either by 1) presenting the information themselves during individual and group guidance activities, 2) having others in the school make the presentation (e.g. teacher advisors or homeroom teachers), or 3) asking a speaker from the Learn More Indiana Speakers Bureau to make the presentation. Community Organizations: Community organizations may also wish to make these presentations with students who participate in their programs. Organization leaders may make the presentations themselves or invite a local speaker identified through the Learn More Indiana Speakers Bureau. Learn More Indiana Speakers Bureau: Learn More Indiana certifies local presenters throughout the state to present these presentations and others on behalf of Learn More Indiana.

5 Please delete this slide before printing or presenting. FACILITATOR GUIDE 6.Presentation Tips: KNOW THE CONTENT: Read through the speakers notes for each slide. If you don’t understand the content, please contact Twenty-first Century Scholars at Learn More Indiana ( ). PRATICE: While speaker notes are provided, practice giving the presentation in your own words. Use the slides as reminders for what to talk about next. Become familiar with the content so you can present it well and do so within the time limit. STRESS: It is natural for speakers to be nervous before a presentation. Get to the event site early enough to a) find the room where you will be presenting, b) set up and test your AV equipment, and c) have time to think about nothing else but your presentation. Remember that even if your presentation is a little shaky, you are still conveying information that is very important to students’ futures. LOOK PROFESSIONAL: A professional appearance shows a lot about a person’s professionalism and confidence. Dress the part! © American Student Achievement Institute.

6 Please delete this slide before printing or presenting. FACILITATOR GUIDE BE PROFESSIONAL: Be courteous to your host and to other presenters. Be on time. Pay attention to other presenters. Refrain from texting or taking phone calls while at the event site. GREAT PEOPLE AT THE DOOR: As people enter the room where you are presenting, stand at the door and great them with a smile. Later, when you’re in front making your presentation, they will remember your warm smile. EYE CONTACT: Make eye contact with as many people as you can while you’re talking. Make a point to look at people in the front of the room, back of the room and both sides of the room. SPEAK CLEARLY: Make sure your voice is clear and loud enough to be heard in the back of the room. As a general rule of thumb, most people need a microphone if there are 50 or more people in the room. A microphone might feel uncomfortable to you, but it’s necessary if the group is large or if you’re soft spoken. © American Student Achievement Institute.

You can do this by 1) asking people if they have questions, 2) asking people to share their experiences, 3) sharing a tasteful story. Another tip is to provide the audience with notecards where they can write the questions they plan to ask later or notepaper listing the topics you will be presenting and leaving space for the audience to take notes. BE EXCITED! Your presentation is important. It will help students develop the knowledge they need to make sound choices in areas that impact postsecondary access and success. They are fortunately to have you as a presenter! PAY ATTENTION: As you present, pay attention to your audience. Do they look confused? If so, repeat what you’ve just said in a way that is more clear. Are they falling asleep? If so, walk around the room as you’re presenting or take a short break. © American Student Achievement Institute.

Be sure to repeat the question loudly so everyone will hear what was asked. That will also give you time to time about your answer. Be sure you understand the question. If not, ask for clarification. If you don’t know the answer to a question, be honest. Tell the group that you will look into the answer and get back with them. Later, contact Susan Tharp at or LEARN FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE: Every time you present, you will have an opportunity to learn. What went well? Where do you need to improve. Make adjustments in your next presentation based on what you learned from your past presentations. © American Student Achievement Institute.
