1 Oral Presentations

2 The 4 Ps • Planning • Preparation • Practice • Presentation

3 Planning is crucial to a successful oral presentation

4 Planning When planning you will pick a topic. Think about:
What do I know a lot about? What would I like to know more about? What do I do for fun? What do I read about? What do I talk about with my friends? What is something that means a lot to me? What exciting things have happened to me?

5 Planning Once you have answered those questions NARROW IT DOWN TO ONE
Which best fits my interest? Will my audience be interested? Can the topic be covered in 2-3 minutes? Gather information Create a writing map to organize your thoughts Write your speech in expository essay format

6 Purpose *** what do you want the audience to know, feel, or believe afterwards *** Just like a writer has a purpose, you do too! To inform (explains, teaches, or gives facts) To persuade (gain support, convince) To inspire (stirs emotions, emotional impact)

7 Audience who are they and why are they here? what are their interests?
what do they know? what do they want to know? what are the important things I can teach them?

8 Beginning The purpose of the introduction is not only to introduce your topic, but also to interest your audience in the topic.  Grab the audience's attention by asking a question, offering an interesting fact, using a quotation or telling a short story. You should preview the content of your presentation by offering a brief outline of what you will be discussing.  You may also want to include why you choose this topic to present on.   

9 Middle The body of your presentation should support your introduction by offering facts, opinions, and reasons to support your topic.  It should contain at least three ideas with supporting details to illustrate your point What, Where, Why, When, Who and How are simple question to guide you!!!

10 End The conclusion should restate the main points without giving examples.  Think of it as a brief summary which emphasizes what you want the audience to remember.  You can finish with a recommendation, a personal thought, an observation, or a question.  Your closing statement (the last statement) should pull your presentation together.

11 If you are prepared, everything will work out!!

12 Outline Outline Your Talk, Write Out Your Talk,
What exactly do you need to tell and show the audience ? On index cards choose two or three points that you want to focus on This will help you find your way in case you get lost! Decide the sequence in which these points should be mentioned.

13 Length Your oral presentation should be 2-3 This is very important.
If you go over 3min. or under 2 min. it will affect your evaluation.

14 Practice, practice, practice!!!

15 Practice Practice as many times as you can.
Practice in front of the mirror. If you can, record yourself with a video camera! And watch it to find out what can you improve. Practice in front of your parents/ guardians or any adult. Ask for their feedback. Practice in front of your friends, ask their opinion. As you practice, make as many corrections as needed.

16 Practice your Rate When giving your oral presentation, its very important to keep an appropriate pace. The optimal rate for a presentation is about 80 words per minute. Don’t talk too fast because we will not understand what you are saying! Don’t talk too slow because your audience might get bored and loose interest.

17 Practice your Volume If you talk too loud, we might think you are screaming! If you to talk too soft, we can’t hear you! Make sure your voice tone is loud enough for everyone to hear you without shouting!

18 Practice your Tone Think about how you talk when you are excited, sad, serious, or simply bored. Choose a tone for your oral presentation that goes with the message you want to communicate. Sound spontaneous, conversational, enthusiastic !!!

19 It is time to stand in front of your audience!
