Presentation to Public Audience or Stakeholder

A.4: Public Audience/Stakeholder Project Presentation (15%)

For this presentation, you will present your A3 Public Audience/Stakeholder Project to me and your classmates. In your 5-7 minute presentation, you will inform us about the choices you made regarding your choice of audience/stakeholder and the genre/medium you chose to communicate to that audience.

You will also tell us a little bit about the topic you’ve been researching this semester. What are some of the issues involved in the topic? How does this information relate back to your audience for A3? Why should someone care about this issue?

Your presentation will also incorporate the use of visuals (PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi, slideshow, etc.).

Following your presentation, you will write a brief essay (300-500 words) reflecting on your presentation and the feedback you receive from your classmates. This essay will be due on Tuesday May 1, 2012.

So the content of your presentation will identify:

Who:   the audience you’ve chosen for A3. Why is this an appropriate audience? Why should this   audience care about your topic?

How:   the genre/medium you’ve chosen for A3. What are the conventions of this genre? How do these conventions make this an appropriate genre to communicate with your target  audience?

What:  the issue/topic you’ve been researching this semester

In class, you will provide and receive written feedback to each other on your presentations regarding presentation style and presentation content.

You will be graded on the content of your presentation as well as your presentation style, including your ability to engage with your audience, eye contact, clarity of speech, staying within the time requirement, etc.
