Keeping Slides Brief

and the FOCUS on YOU


You are the presentation l.jpg
You ARE the PRESENTATION

  • the members of your group do the speaking

  • they give the details

  • they explain

  • they FILL IN the blanks not on the slides


Slides are an enhancement l.jpg
SLIDES are an ENHANCEMENT

  • they should NOT say everything YOU do

  • they should only HIGHLIGHT your main ideas

  • they should be BRIEF and to the POINT


From long to brief l.jpg

You say:

“The first thing we noticed about this poem was that it was from the point-of-view of a mother speaking to her son.”

Slide view:

Mother’s perspective

Speaking to son

The phrase was reduced to 2 short bulleted phrases.

From Long to Brief


From long to brief5 l.jpg

You say:

“The line ‘old age sticks’ could mean that it doesn’t ever go away. It could also be leading up to something ‘old age’ sticks up.”

Slide view:

“sticks” = always

“sticks” = places

The 2 sentences were reduced to a “formula”. I would SAY the line first, of course.

From Long to Brief


Reducing words on slides l.jpg
Reducing words on SLIDES

  • focuses audience on YOU, the speaker

  • makes slides easier to FOLLOW

  • allows YOU to elaborate and explain what you KNOW

  • helps you keep better EYE CONTACT (see 3)


Ways to reduce 1 l.jpg
Ways to REDUCE 1

  • Copy current ideas from slides onto cards

  • Take out KEY ideas and leave only those on the slides

  • Use cards to ELABORATE and FILL IN the details while giving your presentation


Ways to reduce 2 l.jpg
Ways to REDUCE 2

  • If slides are REDUCED, write out ideas on note cards

  • add more details to note cards

    • what more can you say to

      • explain

      • give detail

      • connect with other ideas presented


Ways to reduce 3 l.jpg
Ways to REDUCE 3

  • If no slide yet, write out ideas in FULL on card or paper

  • reduce first by discussion or individually

  • use reduced ideas on slide


Odds and ends l.jpg
Odds and Ends

  • Title Slide ≠ Written Introduction

  • Use strong visual image for introduction and conclusion

    • Relate to what is spoken

  • Choreograph each member’s speaking with the slides
