Planning, executing and presenting a project

Copyright: Colourbox.com

Consider the following points:

Choice of the Topic

  • What do you know about the topic?
  • Which aspect/aspects of the topic do you want to emphasize?
  • What kind of information do you require?
  • Do not select a topic which you are not interested in!

Objective of the Project

  • Before you start collecting information consider your topic and your audience.
  • How much do they already know about the topic?
  • Which aspect(s) of the topic are they (and you) particularly interested in?
  • What is the best way to present your topic and/or what is the best way
    of reaching your audience (i.e. by writing a text, making a video, a poster, a tape, etc.)?

How to get information

  • Where will I find the information I require? (library, internet, teacher, friends, etc.)

General Advice

  • List all the information you want to use in the text.
  • Order the various pieces of information so that they follow in a natural progression.
  • Try to underline the structure of the text by giving the different parts and subsections a heading.
  • Use the introduction to outline the main points of your topic.
  • Decide how and when to use your sources (when to use a quote, a diagram, pictures, etc.).
  • Keep your audience in mind when you are writing.
  • Try to be as clear and precise as possible.
  • Check the text for spelling and grammar mistakes before you hand it in.

Do not copy other people's ideas or text. This is YOUR project!
