TED Talk Planning Sheet

The main presentation should be about 5 min long.

Requires an effective and refined script and delivery-

Be prepared for a Question and Answer session.

Title:

Think up a descriptive title. Try to be creative if it fits.

Participant:

First name only

Challenge:

What challenge/goal/question drove your work?

Learning:

What do you learn? How were you challenged?

Process:

Explain your process and show the products of your work. If there were any setbacks don’t be afraid to talk about them, too.

Motivation:

Talk about your purpose or what the audience should learn from your project. Inspire your audience with your passion for your pursued activity.

Conclusion

Include a meaningful take-away.

In preparation for your presentation, you might want to watch at least three Ted talks paying close attention to their structure, and how they are delivered. Here are links to some of my favorite:
