PASSION PROJECTS BEGIN!
Passion Project Responsibilities
Introducing a Speaker and Thanking a Speaker
You set the tone for the speaker. It is also your responsibility to ensure they are ready and support them with any last minute things you need. Every speaker deserves a thoughtful, helpful, and welcoming introduction. The best introductions are two-way, just as personal introductions are. You will be introducing and thanking one of your classmates. Introduce and thank them in a way that you would like to welcomed and appreciated.
INTERVIEW your speaker;
What was there essential question? What did they accomplish? What would they like said about them to begin? How did their project go? What do they plan to do after June with this project?
This information will help you in your introduction and thank you.
An introduction should:
-Make the speaker feel welcome but do not start with their name…
-Start with something unique about the project and draw us in… this is like a hook
An example could be;
She has been putting in more hours this year than almost any student at HRHS. Her design and efforts have been noticed and appreciated by both Holy Rosary and for many Lloydminster businesses. Our next passion project speaker has worked all semester on (discuss their essential question). She has uncovered… (give a tid bit of about the project itself).
-Indicate that the group feels privileged to have the person as the speaker.
An example could be:
We have been lucky to have Miss Caitlin Davis apart of the SGMS family and we are privileged to have had her as someone who not only participates in class but it has been really incredible witnessing all she has accomplished in terms of finding out if a career in graphic design is right for her.
Please join me in welcoming…
-Humanize the speaker; provide listeners with information that the speaker would not provide in the
-Don’t read off the paper! Write out your introduction. Practice it in front of a mirror. Hone it to sound natural and enthusiastic. Reduce your written introduction to a few key words and/or phrases and transfer them to a sheet a paper. This will be your crutch and because it is there you will probably not need to look at it.
At the conclusion of the presentation the host should:
Turn up lights (if necessary)…
Check audience for last questions…
Publicly thank speaker
An example could be: Cailtyn that was incredible, thank you to much for sharing. (Then sum up or give a tidbit about what you think was the main message or what people enjoyed most.) Cailtyn it is clear you have chosen the right path. Can you believe it? (address her) You have selected a path for your future. Good luck in your endeavors.
Lead another final applause.
