NARRATIVE OF PRESENTATION
Attention-getting opening
Narrate the compelling facts, quotes, questions, or statistics that you plan to use to direct that audience’s attention
toward your argument and get them interested in listening to your topic.
Stating the thesis
Tell the audience your argument in one concise sentence. Think of it as an effective “road map” for your audience to
follow. The template described above is a helpful tool:
“Studies show that ____________[major claim] because __________[main point] and __________[main point].”
Introducing the main points to the audience
This is where you tell the audience what you plan to talk about with them in the next 5-7 minutes. Provide a clear
articulation of the points you’d like to cover and use transitions where appropriate:
“First, I’d like to talk to you about….”. “Then, I’d like to describe….”.
Transition to the first main point: “To start, let’s look at…” or “First, let me tell you about…”
First main point discussion
Provide a brief narrative of your first main point. Describe the supporting evidence that you have gathered to validate
your claims. Make a compelling and complete argument for your audience by providing connections between your research and
examples and the overall claim that you are making in your speech. Remember to include citations in proper APA format for
all researched evidence. Use a conversational style and write it as if you are speaking to a live audience.
Transition to second main point: “Now that I’ve described [restate first main point], let’s move on to my second main
point about….” or “Next, I’d like to talk with you a bit about…”.
Second main point discussion
(see comments about first main point discussion above)
Using the visual aid
At some point during your presentation, you will use a visual element to represent one of your main points of discussion.
Direct your audience’s attention to the visual aid when appropriate and provide a brief explanation of its relevance to
your discussion.
“I’d like to draw your attention to this visual…” or “The visual aid here shows…”
Transition to conclusion
A good way to transition to the conclusion is to reiterate how these two points support your thesis. “As you can see
from these two main points, [restate thesis]” or “In conclusion, these two points together support my claim that [restate
major claim].”
Summarizing the main points for the audience:
Recap what you just talked about with the audience so that you can remind them of the importance aspects of your
argument.
“To summarize, first I talked about…. Then, I showed you…” or “My first main point was…. My second main point showed…”
Ending with an effective closing strategy
End with a call to action or a bit of additional information or quote that will make your topic memorable for the
audience. Write it as if you are speaking to your audience.
