Scribe, Grace Carlson. Wednesday 11th of December.

Scribe: Grace Carlson
Presentation tools
Google Slides/Presentation
Start working on presentation, find you attention getter, and put your link on the group shared document(make sure to have it on public view)
Speech must be between 2:50 and 3:10 minutes long. At 2:50 the timer will raise on hand, and at three they’ll signal you to start wrapping it up. At 3:10 you will be cut off.

Write the speech in a style similar to how you talk, and find something to engage people (attention getter, and slides) Change the slide enough that it stays interesting, but not enough to distract from your speech.
Don’t just read off the board, use pictures.
PRACTICE!!! In front of family, friends, anyone. You are encouraged to memorize your speech but some people do prefer to just “wing it”.
