It is rare that anyone looks forward to their first mandatory oral presentation. it's even harder for the quiet, shy child. But we all have to do it at one time or another. Here at The Tutoring Center in Long Beach, CA, your child will have an opportunity to practice his or her presentation with a tutor before stepping up to the front of the classroom at school. Here are a few guidelines you can use to help your child in putting together and performing a great oral presentation.
Standing in front of an audience can make your throat go dry, your knees go weak, and your brain go blank. Getting over this hurdle is the first and most important step. Helping your child properly prepare for an oral presentation will hopefully make his first experience with public speaking a positive one.
Collecting the Data
First of all, your child should have a clear understanding of the purpose of the presentation. This will help him to organize the outline. The next step is to research the topic in which the presentation will be about.. Knowing every detail of the subject is the key to a good oral presentation.
After your child has researched all the needed information for the presentation, he needs to organize it and prepare the speech. Have him put all the facts and note cards in chronological order.
Be Able to Recite
Once the outline is complete, your child then needs to memorize the speech. He should read it over several times on his own in front of a mirror out loud. Once he feels confident enough, he should practice the full presentation in front of family members to get feedback and develop a comfort level. This should all help increase his confidence and comfort level resulting in a better presentation.
