Introduce your Topic

  • Tell them what you are going to teach them.
  • Tell them why you choose to demonstrate this topic.
  • Then tell them why your listeners should know how to do it or what they can do with this skill.

Present and demonstrate it to your listeners step by step. So, outlinethe steps of your topic. Show the activities or moves you have to make in a logical chronological order. Describe the details. Be clear. Don't think the audience will understand your demonstration speech topics immediately.

Poster Designs

Working with an original image, we opened it in Adobe Photoshop.  We then edited them to a grayscale photo, chose a filter, and resized it to compliment a 8.5 x 11" format.  Then we opened the image in Adobe Illustrator so we could use the font selection and adapt words to surround and compliment our image.  We had to choose a theme and work at balancing out the words to fill the page.  We talked about possibilities of outlined letters, using grays instead of black fill and resizing the words.
