Presentation Transcript

  1. Public Speaking Ready-Junior English

  2. Know the needs of your audience-make sure to define any terms that may be foreign to them • Know your material thoroughly • Know what your strong and weak points are, play into your strengths and compensate for your weaknesses Things you should KNOW

  3. Do dress appropriately-Remember, this is a formal presentation…look like it! • Do look confident and remain calm, even if you are nervous • Do speak slowly, enunciate clearly, and show proper emotion • Do speak loudly enough so EVERYONE can hear you • Do make eye contact with your audience What you should DO

  4. Avoid any nervous fidgeting, be aware of your habits and do your best to correct them • Stand tall and confident, don’t slump into yourself • Use appropriate hand gestures and facial expressions to enhance your speech • Do not read entirely from your notes, glance down when needed Body Language

  5. Practice with your visual aid prior to using it, especially if it is technology (see me if you would like to have a run through prior to giving your speech) • The visual should enhance your speech, not take away from it…make sure it doesn’t over dazzle your audience or distract them from what you are saying Visual Aid

  6. Just like your paper, it should have an introduction, body, and conclusion • You need a visual aid • You should NOT read from your paper! • A speech is MUCH different from a paper • Papers are mechanical when read aloud • Speeches should be more natural The Speech Itself

  7. Make certain your introduction and conclusion so are appropriate for a spoken presentation…remember: they need to sound natural, not mechanical • Create notecards for yourself • Bullet point main speaking points • Highlight or color code stopping and starting points in case you get lost • Practice, practice, practice! In front of a mirror, videotape yourself, family members, friends, etc. How to Prepare

  8. 4-5 minutes (no less, no more) • Formal and professional (do not wear sweat pants, look presentable) • Use of visual aide (remember it needs to ADD to your speech, not take away from it) • Appropriate topic and language for audience (remember to use 3rd person…your audience is not going to go out and do whatever you are explaining) • Good organization (doesn’t jump around or confuse audience…easy to follow) Graded Requirements
