Practice Ignite

In this blog post, I’m going to be talking about my Ignite. What is an Ignite? An Ignite is a five minute presentation on a topic. And think about it as a story. You would tell a story on, let’s say, gymnastics, if you like gymnastics. My presentation is one minute and forty five seconds long. I was given the choice to do whatever topic I want. So I chose Greek Mythology. I think doing an Ignite is fun, except presenting it. I always get nervous. This is a practice Ignite, because after this Ignite, I’m going to do an official one on Colonial America, but that’s later. In the process, I wrote stuff in a script, and then, after that, made a slideshow with pictures, no words. It’s because I’m going to be talking, so if I put words on the slideshow, then the audience would focus on the words, and not me. In the speaker notes, I put in my script for each slide. In total, there are seven sides, and an eighth slide that says “Time is up!” There’s an eighth slide that says “Time Is Up”, so that you wouldn’t keep talking. Each slide would stay up for fifteen seconds, so I would have to talk for fifteen seconds. Originally, there’s supposed to be twenty six slides. In the script, there are four sections: time, picture, slides, and words. In the beginning of the project, I was super nervous. But now, I’m mostly not nervous, except on the part that I have to present it to twenty three people, plus, their parents. But I love doing this project because it’s super fun and exciting. Mr. Casal kept on teaching me what to do, so that’s how I got to here.
