Lessons design:
  • Explain that visuals strengthen an informal pitch when they are used in meaningful ways.

  • Often, presenters will create a visual tool to complement their pitch. Use PowerPoint, Smartboard Notebooks or Google Presentation to support your pitch with visual aides. A well-crafted visual aide is not a script, but a visual tool that guides and complements a presentation.

  • Guide students on how to access ‘Perfect Your Pitch’, a Creative Activist Toolkit, that will support them in creating an effective and inspiring pitch.

  • Groups will use “Perfect Your Pitch” to start crafting their own presentation materials. Groups should delegate responsibilities among their members in preparation for developing their pitch.
