One thing my group did very well was painting a picture for our audience, even though we knew about our stories we wanted to make sure everyone else did too, without giving away the plot. Our goal was for the audience to be able to visualize what was going on while being able to see, the elements of fiction were incorporated into them. This was made easier when we put less words on the powerpoint and used more effective images.
While incorporating the elements into our presentation we needed to make sure there were strong transitions between the two topics. This was a lot more difficult then it sounds, because we did want it to be bland. Our goal was still to paint the picture while tying in the two topics.
We accomplished this by relating our stories to past stories that we have read or using elements from one story and finding something similar in another. Our topics were not easy topics to do a presentation on. The Most Danger Game was fairly simple but the two stories we used for fantasy, were a bit more difficult.
Harsh topics such as being a drunk or rape are not something people enjoy talking about. They are so common in everyday life but nobody talks about it, so taking a less harsh approach was hard.
Through all of these elements I believe our classmates learned a lot and we were able to paint a picture.
