Scripting presentations

Working with a group

Quite often an assessed presentation is a group task. But how does that work? How can a presentation that is meant to be about a single topic be shared out between a group fairly?

Here are some tips:
  • Do the planning together... all of you, at the same time, in the same room.
  • Make sure you all understand the key message of the presentation.
  • At the planning stage, divide the topic up into logical and equal sections.
  • Divide topics between group members.
  • Brainstorm each topic section together.
  • Carry out research and writing individually.
  • Come back together often to compare and collate your work.
  • If one topic section runs short, start dividing up the work on another section so everyone does equal amounts.
  • Make sure you edit and practise the presentation as a group.
