  • Be sure to use complete sentences, consistent symbols, alignment, formatting, and follow the rule of division.
  • Proofread your completed outline for the above as well as for spelling and grammar.

Works Cited: (10 points)

  • Begin your works cited list on a separate page after your outline under the label Works Cited which should be centered.
  • The works cited list provides the information necessary for a reader to locate and be able to read any sources you cite in the speech.
  • Each source you cite in the speech must appear in your works-cited list;
  • Likewise, each entry in the works-cited list must be cited in your speech, vocal citation.
  • If works cited does not follow MLA guidelines you will receive a zero for this portion of the assignment.
  • Prepare your works cited list using MLA style
  • Make the first line of each entry in your list flush left with the margin. Subsequent lines in each entry should be indented one-half inch. This is known as a hanging indent.
  • Double space all entries.  Double space both within and between entries.
  • Alphabetize the list of works cited by the first word in each entry (usually the author’s last name)
  • Don’t forget to include author name, title of article, publisher name, publication date (or for website – last date updated), and website access date.  New MLA guidelines do not require the URL address; however, you must indicate if the source is Web. or

 
VISUAL AID TIPS:

  • Visual aids should be collegiate.  Use computer text rather than handwritten.
  • Visual aids should help the audience follow, understand, or remember the presentation.
  • Visual aids should be spaced appropriately throughout the presentation.  They should not all be at the beginning or end.
  • The best visual aids are ones that make images or information more concrete.  For example:
    •  Pictures of places, people, things
    • Graphs or charts of statistical information
    • Visual aids used to demonstrate a process
    • Audio aids are also helpful to illustrate music
  • Visual aids should follow the CVS principle:
    • Clarity – understandable
    • Visible – font should be at least 2 inches; pictures should be at least 8 X 10 or enlarged using the Document Camera
    • Simplicity – do not have too much going on at one time.  Limit the amount of text and limit the number of colors
  • PowerPoint Tips:
    • Keep background clean.  Best to use black font on white background or very dark background with white text.  One of the provided designs in PowerPoint is usually a good choice.
    • Avoid the “Bells and Whistles”
      • Do not have text flying in and out
      • Leave off the sound effects
    • Follow the 7 X 7 rule – no more than 7 lines with 7 words on a slide
    • PowerPoint is a great medium to use to enlarge pictures, charts, and graphs
  • Document Camera
    • Use a separate sheet of paper for each picture, chart, or graph
    • Create your own chart or graph.  Do not simply put one up there that is busy with too much information or which includes information you do not mention.
    • Zoom in so that the picture or graph completely fills the screen.
  • Charts and Graphs – be sure to discuss all information on a graph.  Don’t just say this chart represents the top 10 illnesses, tell us what they are.  Pretend like the audience cannot see the chart/graph and describe it to them.
  • Don’t forget make sure all visuals and media work.  Nothing is more distracting that a video that doesn’t load or visuals that keep falling.
    • Load all video before beginning your speech.
    • No more than 30 seconds of video is appropriate in a 4-6 minute speech.
