Some tips for presenting:

  • don’t read your paper (it’s boring!)
  • if you make a handout, don’t read the handout (it’s boring! We can read, thank you!)
  • put key information on the handout or Powerpoint slide.
  • If you just read your presentation, repeat the key points 4 or 5 times.
  • speak slowly, and clearly.
  • give your sources, and check them first. It’s your responsibility to check your sources.
  • make sure you know the difference between fact and opinion, and tell your listeners which is which.
