Create Your Psychology Presentation

After students have read through the materials for their chosen topics, it is time to start putting together their presentations. The format of these presentations can vary, since students may choose to use different tools and techniques to present the materials.

Some possibilities:

1. Create an Online Journal:

Students interested in creating an online journal can utilize one of the many free blogging tools that are available (I recommend Blogger or WordPress). After signing up for an account, students can start creating entries. Students might opt to break their research up into separate sections and then create a separate blog entry for each topic, or they may also choose to keep a running journal of their personal thoughts and reactions to the materials that they read.

Be sure to have your students read the following directions on how to create their own blogs.

  • Wordpress.com: How to Start a Free Blog at Wordpress.com

2. Create a Document or Presentation

Students who do not wish to do an online presentation might want to consider making a written document or PowerPoint presentation. For a written document, students can present their information as a research report, as a question-and-answer style document or as a written journal. Those interested in creating a PowerPoint presentation may want to break up their research into different sections and create separate slides for each part of their project.

Your students may want to consult the following resources for more information on creating multimedia presentations.

  • Beginner's Guides to Creating Presentations

3. Create a Poster-board Presentation

Another assignment option is to have students develop a poster-board presentation. In addition to containing a wealth of information, these poster-boards should also be visually engaging. One fun alternative would be to have all students in the classroom create a poster-board and then hold a "psychology conference" where students share and discuss the information presented in their posters.
