For my Ted-style talk, I discussed the benefits of physical activity on mental health. This project utilized the following course objectives:
- Create professional documents that use plain English principles (to a targeted audience, which was the ENGL 470 class)
- Conduct research to create content for a variety of professional documents
- create professional documents that use design principles
- Practice oral communication skills to present content effectively (enhanced with multimedia tools)
In order to achieve my objectives, I utilized Ethos, Pathos, and Logos, and also conducted individual research which can be found on the references page. I followed various design principles to create an effective ted-style talk, such as using fewer words and incorporating more visuals. This assignment provided me with an opportunity to improve my communication skills by presenting in person, as well as to enhance my proficiency in using Microsoft PowerPoint. As a future educator, it is important for me to feel confident in creating and delivering presentations, so I welcome any chance to practice and improve.
