  13. Overall: What are 5 important elements of an effective presentation?

  14. Generally • Opening/introduction: • Sets the stage. • Try to “grab” the audience’s attention. • Provide a very BRIEF summary or outline of your points.

  15. Generally • Body: • Where the subject is presented. • Should be well-organized. - Sub-sections should be used. - Each sub-section covers one idea. - Each subsection should have its own simple opening and closing.

  16. Generally • Summary: • Should be short and simple. • Reinforce your central idea and purpose. • - Briefly emphasize your key points. “Tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, and then tell them what you told them.”

  17. Our First Task: Partner Introduction • Information to come this week. • For now, your responsibility is researching your partner.
