    Tips for giving a presentation in front of the entire class. ON YOUR OWN?

    As the title states. I'm a nervous wreck, I'm awful at giving any kind of presentation. But this is important. Help?

    Well, just be yourself. Try to blank out the audience and really feel your presentation. Just remember that if you're nervous it'll go bad.. so you're being counter productive. You can be nervous but try to push past it, better to look stupid and try than to look stupid and be stupid

    Just think that everyone else has to do the presentation too, and they'll most likely be feeling nervous too.
    Also, it's a class presentation so no one will really focus on you anyway.

    Deep breaths, don't cry, try not to have a shaky voice, and practice. That's it really. I've been doing presentations since I was 12 at school, nearly 9 years, and I still kinda suck at it, but those things work

    Practice, practice, practice. And if it's anything like my experiences, your classmates won't even pay attention... but i don't know what the context of your situation is, it's probably different

    I'm horrible at presenting but just prepare for it and take deep breaths. Soon you'll be in the flow of things as you'll know what you are talking about.

    Smiling sometimes helps me to show I'm enjoying it (when I'm NOT)

    Don't see it as a presentation, see it as if you're telling them a story rather, less scary already! Also, don't make a lot of text and have a paper in front of you with that text on it. You're not going to be able to present it well, and most likely you're going to screw up once, making you panic. Instead of studying a sheet of paper with text, study your topic! Make a powerpoint presentation with that exact key words on them so that, with your knowledge, you can talk freely if you see those words. Use pictures/videos to bring your topic to life and engage your classmates in your story through asking them questions.
