Oral academic presentation

A Takeaway Teaching plan that trains the students in preparing and making oral presentations

Oral academic presentation

The purpose of the teaching plan Oral academic presentation is to engage students in activities that instruct and train them in academic presentation. The activities focus on both preparation and performance. Students learn to use rhetorical concepts within oral performance, and they learn what is needed for an oral presentation to be successful.

The teaching plan includes three elements:

1) Concepts concerning oral presentation.

2) Prepare the oral presentation, perform and receive feedback.

3) The five tenets of rhetoric.
