First Oral Presentation Assignment - (40 points.)
oral presentation will be on the same topic as your PowerPoint One
assignment -- information about yourself to serve as an introduction to
the class. The slideshow you create will be part of your talk. The
presentation will last between one and two minutes. A PC computer in
the classroom will be provided for your slideshow.
Guidelines to think about for your speech:
- Speak clearly and with
sufficient volume to be heard.
- Maintain good posture and
make eye contact with your audience.
- Is your slideshow error-free?
- Did you provide enough
information for the audience to understand what you wished to convey?
- Will your speech be
rehearsed, smooth, confident, and interesting?
Failure to have a working presentation for your speech will be a 15
point deduction. Make sure the instructor has the most recent
version of your presentation by emailing it as an attachment no later
than two hours prior to the start of class.
