Here’s my problem

  • Here’s my belief
  • Here’s my evidence
  • Here’s my solution

……all in a 4-8 minute speech.

Your criteria for a complete Presentation.
grab the audience s attention

Just as you grabbed your reader’s attention for your research paper, you must do the same with a speech.

  • Use similarly mentioned techniques of:
    • Telling a story
    • Stating a shocking fact
    • Asking a rhetorical question
    • Engaging the audience’s participation
Grab the audience’s attention
story telling

Tell a brief story about someone or something that is involved or has been affected by your research topic.

Make it brief, passionate, and paint a picture with a picture

Story Telling
sarah was fat
Sarah Was Fat!

She was 5’6”, weighed 115 pounds which is actually considered medically underweight; yet she considered herself huge in “fashion magazine terms.”

Surprising Fact or a quote………..You can accompany your fact or quote with a picture, but it’s not necessary.
  • One out of five people in this classroom have herpes!
  • 25% of all car accidents are caused by cell phones.
  • At this moment 250 million people are checking their Facebookstatus.

Audience Participation

  • Poll – (show of hands)

“Who here communicates with others? “

  • Class Dialogue: “How do you do that?” (Ask for 3 or 4 responses.)
  • (Can you guess the topic of this presentation?)

Do you have a shocking fact or a story from your research that would “grab the audience?”

Is there a quote or quick excerpt from a video/music that you could use?

Pair/Share – Give each other suggestions.

after you grab their attention

Introduce your topic – (Here’s my problem).

Define any part of your topic that needs clarified and finally…..

State your Thesis –

(Here’s what I believe)

Let your audience see it and hear it.

After you grab their attention…..
after you clearly state your thesis

Present your evidence (we call them “Sub-Topics).

Briefly provide a sampling of evidence for each.

Choose your most convincing stories, statistics, and data.


After you clearly state your thesis…
bore your audience

With a lot of words, and numbers and charts.

on a side note

For power point slides or visual aids, you should always give your source credit.

Ps. I think you know this by now.

Cite each slide with a parenthetical citation – just like below.

Add a Works Cited page with citations from anything you included in your power point. Copy and paste your last page from your research paper and include only the citations that you included in your power point presentation.

(Priestap 34).

On a side note:

Present your evidence in a variety of ways.

Power Points

Very Visual Charts


Audience Polls

    • Quick phrases as verbal reminders….don’t read from them.
  • Make eye contact with your entire audience.
  • Smile
  • Don’t be afraid to use comfortable gestures…but don’t over or under do it.
