Professional Communication and Presentation Online Part Two: Revision Worksheet and Part Three: Reflection on Advice PART TWO: REVISION WORKSHEET Revision is one of the most challenging steps in the presentation ecosystem, but with some attention to three areas: content, visual story, and delivery, you will be on your way to developing a strong final Ignite presentation. Use this checklist/questionnaire to further refine your plan of action for the Ignite presentation. If you can honesty and objectively answer yes to these questions, you have engaged in strong revision. CONTENT The following questions relate to the content and organization of your presentation. Examine your overall presentation and its structure carefully. Then answer the questions below using complete sentences. 1. Does my presentation have a clear big idea? Identify your big idea; type your big idea into the space below. Does it match this description? Your big idea for a presentation should be 1. Your perspective on the topic, 2. What's at stake for the audience, and 3. One complete sentence. For more, see page 78 of Resonate. Yes, my presentation does have a clear big idea. Many people women included, judge dancers and cheerleaders based on what they see at the game, barely knowing what really goes on behind the scenes and how these ladies are chosen to be on the field and/or court. Yes it does match the descriptions given. 2. Highlight yes or no for each of the following. Each of these pieces relates to the organization of your presentation. Review the Ignite Outline Worksheet, pages 36-44 and 126-129 and the storyboarding an Ignite presentation. a. My presentation is organized using the structure found in the outline worksheet from week 1. (YES/NO) Copy and paste your revised outline using instructor and classmate feedback. b. Big idea: Professional dancers are wrongly stereotype because people think they are uneducated, a distraction, a waist of time when it comes to being apart of a professional sports team. c. Audience’s Journey: The target audience is adults 18 and up. Professional dancers would benefit the most from my perspective. The audience will see that the stereotype they have giving dancers are not true and look at them in a different light. d. I am a professional dancer and while meeting with fans at games, promos, events etc. they always ask me where do I think that I’m going to get in life with a dance career and no educational career. I simply tell them most of us on the team already have our degree or are close to getting them. Dancing is like a second job/ hobby that we love doing just for fun because its not like we get paid a lot. e. Preliminary Research:

Parramore, Lynn. (2013,Sept. 25). Professional Cheerleaders Face Exploitation, Low Pay and No Benefits. AlterNet Retrieved from http://www.alternet.org/labor/professional-cheerleading- and-low-pay?page=0%2C0 Anderson, Caty DiDonato. (2010, Jan 30). Not Much To Cheer About- The Exploitation of the NFL Cheerleader. Conducive Chronicle Retrieved from http://cchronicle.com/2010/01/not-much-to-cheer-about-the-exploitation-of-the-nfl-cheerleader/ Gopher (2012,Jan 20). Science Cheerleader. Retrieved from http://www.sciencecheerleader.com/2012/01/lindsey-nfl-cheerleader-chemical-engineer-co- chair-of-merck-women’s-network/ I will use these sources to give factual information to the audience to show proof of what I am trying to get across to them. I. Beginning • Slide 1: Hook/attention grabber: A quote from one of the articles • Slide 2: Hook/attention grabber: Another quote from another article to get my big idea started for my next slide. • Slide 3: The Big Idea (pages 78-79): The stereotypes about pro dancers are wrong; dancing is a part-time job/ hobby for them. They have actually have degrees, well paying jobs, and or in college getting there degree. • Slide 4: What’s in it for your audience? Explain why your topic is important or worth discussing. The truth about dancers and their lives is what’s in it for the audience. This topic is worth discussing because professional dancers can gain the respect the deserve and need. They can become role models for other inspiring dancers. • Slide 5: Why should your audience listen to you? Explain your ethos (personal experience, expertise, and credibility). My audience should listen to me because I have experienced being stereotyped and know how it feels to be put down, not respected, and called something I’m not because I am a professional dancer. I want to tell my story and be heard and understood. • Slide 6: Call to Adventure (pages 38-39): You can understand the struggles and stereotypes

pro dancers go through if you new all the facts. II. Middle • Slide 7: Preview the three main points that will support your big idea: 1. Most professional dancers are educated and have very good careers. 2. Most dancers dance because they love it and or they have been dancing all their life and want to continue and make it a career. 3. Dancers want to be role models and want people to understand why they dance. • Slide 8: Introduce and set up Supporting Point One: People that Stereotype say that dancers are paid what they are worth but how can you say that if you know nothing about them but that they dance. • Slide 9: Factual or emotional evidence: They look at dancers as showing to much skin. • Slide 10: Factual or emotional evidence: Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders rake in an estimated $1 million per season to the franchise through everything from annual swimsuit calendars to pricey training camps for aspiring cheerleaders. But the women make only a pittance — $150 per game. • Slide 11: Introduce and set up Supporting Point Two: Pro dancers dance just because they love to do it. • Slide 12: Factual or emotional evidence: Dancers don’t receive pay for practices, photo shoots, most appearances, insurance, and don’t get paid that much for games. • Slide 13: Factual or emotional evidence: Most dancers have children, families, fulltime jobs and other responsibilities but still make sure they show up to practices, games, and any other little to none pay events. • Slide 14: Introduce and set up Supporting Point Three: Any and every dancer can back up why the stereotypes for pro dancers aren’t true. • Slide 15: Factual or emotional evidence: Most pro dancers are educated and have good paying jobs or close to getting there degree. • Slide 16: Factual or emotional evidence: Most dancers have graduated college before they came apart of a pro dance team or are doing it while they are on the team. They are trying to accomplish their goals while doing what they love. • Slide 17: Call to Action (pages 42-43): The audience should do their research and try and understand dancers and the lives they live. III. End • Slide 18: Summarize the main points: Dancers are always stereotyped and not well

understood. They dance because they love it not for the little money they do get. Most of them are well educated with fulltime jobs outside of being a pro dancer. You have to know and understand them and their lives to know what all they go through before you stereotyping them and making them look like they are worthless. • Slide 19: Restate big idea: Understand dancers before stereotyping them to be something they aren’t. • Slide 20: Clincher/new bliss (page 44): Because they have to show a lot of skin, dance like know one is watching, don’t get paid much and still want to do it doesn’t mean that they are know good. Do your research and you will understand why they do it and that dancing isn’t a much it’s an option that they love doing. f.
