This two-book series teaches students how to confidently give presentations for large and small groups. The text illustrates the path to effective presentations through the steps of planning, writing, editing, practicing and presenting. It explores the skills of brainstorming, outlining, organizing, using visuals, voice projection, and non-verbal communication. Students make improvements in the areas of critical and logical thinking, as well as develop overall English skills by communicating experiences and opinions on topics that they choose and develop with teachers.
