Presentation Checklist

  • Bona fide introduction
    • Introduce the title of the presentation and each of the team members
    • Establish some context by explaining the scope of your research project --- For the past several weeks, our group has been conducting research on two musicians and their music.
    • Establish some context by briefly describing each piece and musician in a catchy way!
    • Preview EVERYTHING that is going to be discussed in the presentation at the end of the intro.
  • Powerpoint
  • Material presented is based on research and sources suited for academic audiences
    • Citation happens in 3 places: In-text (in the body slides of Powerpoint), verbally during the presentation, and the References (at the end of the PowerPoint).
    • Sources should be cited in APA!
  • Music is skillfully integrated into the presentation.
    • The presenters set up playing the music by formally introducing it and letting the audience know what they should be listening for.
    • After the music is played, commentary/analysis is offered.
  • Whenever possible, presenters involve the audience by asking questions and soliciting their input!
  • The transition between presenters is smooth and practiced and shows COLLEGIALITY!
    • Presenter 1 Tom: "Now that I have given you a brief background and some historical context on Berlioz, Jane is going to dig a little deepr into the Romantic Era.
    • Presenter 2 Jane: "Thank you, Tom. During the Romantic Era ..... "
  • Whenever it is possible, the presenters should try to present the information in a narrative/story form rather than just listing facts and details.
  • Rather than simply asserting a claim or an idea, presenters must use evidence to illustrate and prove the claims and ideas being presented.
  • In the conclusion, there should be a brief recap of the presentation AND bigger picture statement or discussion of music, art and its connection to the human experience.
