Structure of Presentation
Students need structure. Oral presentations are also much more effective if they are structured correctly and often students fail to understand they cannot merely deliver a list of random points loosely strung together. Help them out by giving them structure guidelines for each presentation that they do and make sure they understand it will be assessed accordingly as part of their grade.
