Victorian Presentations

Published Tuesday, May 08, 2012.
Last updated: Tuesday, May 08, 2012

For the next two weeks your Tuesday Literacy and Wednesday theme home learning should be spent researching and preparing to give a three minute presentation to the class about an aspect of Victorian life that interests you. We will start hearing the presentations in the week that starts with Monday 21st of May. You will need to use your time wisely and start now!

The first thing to do is to think of an area of Victorian life that interests you. Aim to keep it precise. For example, Victorian school is too big a topic, but school discipline is not. Victorian inventions is too big, but the light bulbs isn’t. Here are some ideas for areas you could focus on:

  • Life for a rich child.
  • Life for a chimney sweep.
  • A famous Victorian (For example, Charles Darwin).
  • The music hall (an opportunity to sing to us here!).
  • Victorian crime and punishment.

You might well have your own ideas (particularly if you have a famous Victorian relative!) and this is fine, just check with me first.

Next you need to start your research and note taking. You should take notes in your own words, and only include things you understand and that you think will be interesting to your audience.

After this, start writing up your notes and practise, practise, practise. When you are writing your talk, please try to include your own views and opinions about what you are talking about. The more you practise, the better your delivery will be and the less nervous you will be. Please create a powerpoint to go alongside your presentation, but remember it must be mainly visual. You don’t want your audience to be reading, you want them to be listening to you. Here are some good examples from last year.

Here is the blog post with advice for presentations that we used for the Aztecs. Remeber, this time we do not need a model, but we do need a powerpoint.

I am very much looking forward to hearing them!

Please post the subject you will be covering in the comment box below by Friday 11th May.

Here is a great resource if you want to learn more about life for Victorians and listen to some audio tapes.
