Words of Wisdom

Reading and writing, like everything else, improve with practice. And, of course, if there are no young readers and writers, there will shortly be no older ones. Literacy will be dead, and democracy - which many believe goes hand in hand with it - will be dead as well.

— Margaret Atwood

A fear of public speaking and lack of preparation often hinder students from giving an effective oral presentation. This workshop covers the process of preparing a presentation, including invention (or thinking of what to say), organization, incorporation of visual aids, practice, and delivery. We will spend time going over tips for creating effective slides, and we suggest ways to control voice and movement while presenting. The students will be able to critique sample slides during the workshop, and they will receive handouts for further reference.
