Become Your Own AV
People are put to sleep when they listen to a presentation that is
read instead of discussed (or explained) by the presenter.
This is especially true when a presenter is actually a reader and no
AV is used other than the reader's good looks and smart style.
Certain disciplines require that a lengthy text is read as is.
Readers should inflect their voice.
Readers should use body language.
Readers should use direct eye contact.
Readers should use interesting word choice and vary syntax structure. Readers
should not use this section as an example of how to deliver an essay.
Readers might become drowsy despite the reader's attempt. At
this point, the reader should unveil a cheap trick such as slapping the table
when discussing orgasm or acting out the text in another dramatic manner.
This information is especially pertinent to those in Creative
Writing, a discipline where language and the text itself are central.
