Learning about how to present has affirmed my beliefs on how to construct a professional presentation. Whenever I had presentations, book talks, or projects, I always watched my classmates copy and paste a great big paragraph of information and read it word for word, neglecting their audience. This bored me and I made a promise to my audience to never put them through that. I exposed myself to Ted Talks and other professional presentations and I became a far more engaged speaker. I feel that some students have stage fright, which scares any potential away. A strategy I use to conquer stage fright is making myself an expert on the topic at hand. This strengthens my confidence because I know what I am talking about. I cannot wait to become an expert of literary elements and serve as a wonderful tour guide for my class.
