Presenting Projects

In order to present a classroom project well, you need to understand the goals of the assignment. Figure out how much time you need to get the project done well. The easiest way to do a project is to break it down into smaller projects. When you do this, you need to assign a deadline to each smaller project in order to be finished and ready to present on time.

Once you have your goals or objectives, figure out what you need to do to achieve them. Meet with your instructor as often as necessary. Decide on your research and do it. Look over your research at intervals to make sure that you are on the right path. Draw conclusions from your research, then outline the subject and conclusions either to write them or to present in class. Always be sure to have a review and an evaluation of your work.

When you make your presentation, you also need to understand your audience and how much it knows about your topic. Present your thesis statement or your point, or an argument. At the end of the presentation, be sure to review your project and summarize it. When giving a classroom presentation, consider using visual aids to keep your audience’s interest. Always leave the floor open for questions and answers, if time allows. Always rehearse your presentation skills before presenting in class. You can do it alone in front of a mirror, on tape or sound recordings or in front of other people.
