The main difference is that in a written paper must be completely grammatically correct, including the mechanics of writing, such as commas and quotation marks. With a speech, you’ll need to have good grammar, but you also have access to body language – you can communicate a lot with facial expressions, by moving your hands
- Rewrite your speech for best effect, just like your written papers
- you can communicate a lot [do a lot, express a lot, say a lot]
- Practice your speech to remember the best words
Tutor on PowerPoint
Your speech,it needs solid information and a clear flow of ideas, just like a written paper. You should have your speech printed up in full sentences & paragraphs, whereas a PowerPoint presentation shows only key-words on the screen.
But the PowerPoint! It can make your ideas sparkle, or it can just be boring screen text.
“Transition” changes the way a new page moves onto the screen
- They should be consistent through your slide show
- Think of the “parallel construction” you do in a written essay
“Animation” changes the way a line or picture bounces onto the screen
- Your animation should be consistent through the page
- (parallel construction AGAIN)
- Because it’s just that useful!
- Animations can and should be different from page to page
- Playing with animation is a lot of fun, so make sure you have your information well organized before you start to play 🙂
- After a line or picture moves onto the screen, you can “add animation” and it will continue to move as you speak through the rest of the page.
