  • Things that will Reduce your Grade in Presentations
Here are some common mistakes students make in presentations:
  • don't read your presentation from a piece of paper - use note cards
  • don't spend all your presentation telling your audience things they already know - teach them something new and useful
  • don't have the Overhead Projector turned on all the time
  • don't have Overhead Transparencies (OHTs) as your only visual aid
  • don't have paragraphs on your OHTs - point form only
  • don't forget to check the pronunciation of words that you are not sure about, especially if they are important words in your presentation. CILL has a CD-ROM dictionary that you can listen to for pronunciation.

Check your presentation plan for these problems, and get rid of them!
