My word per minute rate was 214 words per minutes. Practice makes perfect-practice your speech with your power point to get out all the kinks. Avoid humor- it is not a comedy show Do not put too much information in the slide show- too much information, or overloading it, can lead to long dragged out presentations. The audience will walk away and have learned nothing. Do not talk about you Do not use lingo that the audience will not understand K.I.S.S.-Keep it simple stupid!

I focus better when my surroundings are quiet.

Unformatted text preview: I minimized distractions by closing out all other windows that I had previously had open, making sure my son was asleep before I started, and putting my phone on silent so if anyone called it would not distract me.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
