CLASS PRESENTATION INFORMATION
To ensure that your work is scholarly and professional,
when making an in-class presentation:
If you have any questions, please contact your instructor
ahead of time.
- You will not read your material to the class, except for short,
specific passages/quotes. You will have an outline to guide your remarks.
- Your outline (short sentences and phrases) will be displayed via the classroom
projection unit (either as a Word or Powerpoint file or an html page).
- Your remarks should last between five and ten
minutes (unless a longer time has been agreed upon ahead of time).
- You should have practiced your remarks aloud beforehand (This
is especially important if your presentation is being done by a team); pay particular
attention to the pronunciation of foreign names/words.
- Your presentation should have a clear introduction,
analysis (the body of your work) section and conclusion.
- Your introduction should both identify the
purpose of your presentation and also provide something to gain the
audience's attention, such as a quote, some statistics, an image, etc.
- Your presentation should be based on multiple, reliable
sources (and it is a good idea to indicate some of them in your outline and then review the
reliability of your sources for the class).
- You must be organized.
- Be prepared to answer questions from the class and
- Be early for your scheduled class to ensure
that there will be no problem with any technology needed for your presentation.
- Finally, if you are doing a report on an
important figure who is dead, be sure that you know where that person is
