Default Write a paper or give a live presentation?

So guys, how would you like to present your information on a topic: through a live presentation or through a paper.

If the topic is something easy and I know where to get sources, I'll choose the paper. I can knock out the paper in one hour (5 pages). This happened to me last semester and didn't even proof read it and got an A on the paper. Damn I'm balla.

If the topic is hard, requires a lot of research and must be a long paper, I'd do a presentation. I'm a decent public speaker

But if the topic is something I REALLY enjoy and want people to be interested in as well, I'd rather do a presentation.

If the topic is about analyzing allusions, alliteration, metaphors and lame shit like that, I'm fucked either way. Seriously though, how do teachers know if all those things existed in the book? How do they know the real meaning of the book? Isnt that the point of a book, to gather your own meaning? Did the author specifically point out that, "this is an allusion and this is what I meant."

Goddamn, I hated being tested over that BS. Just let me read and enjoy the book and not have to deal with that BS.

SO LIVE PRESENTATION OR A PAPER??

I always liked live presentations better because I hate having to make sure my papers were in MLA format with proper citations in text and a correct sources cited page. Live presentations let me explain things and add stuff as it comes and I like public speaking so I always enjoyed em

Those two choices are definitely comparable. For the presentation, you only have to come up with an outline and make sure for every section of your speech, you have the information in your head.

paper man..

i took the placement test for college yesterday for math and english.

i got a 99 on the english, the lady said that was the highest you can get .

kinda messed up on the math though. i got a 69, i should have studied atleast a little. the questions were basic algebra questions but i couldn't remember some of them at all. i haven't touched a book in a year and a half..

I probably do a presentation, especially if its powerpoint, and I can read my notes from my research on the topic. Piece of cake.

writing a paper can make one feel bored & sluggish if his heart is not in it.

Default Re: Write a paper or give a live presentation?

It really depended on the subject matter for me. If it was something that could be made entertaining and interesting via a live presentation, I enjoyed doing it that way. If it was something that would bore the f#ck out of the room, I would rather write a paper.

FWIW, I had to write a 120-page research paper and give a two-hour presentation for my senior project before graduation a couple of years ago. It was hell... You are bringing back bad memories.

Default Re: Write a paper or give a live presentation?

to me, depends on the audience and length of both.

if its a big crowd of unfamiliar faces, im inclined towards paper.

BUT 10 page paper, 10 minute presentation.... the choice is easy (presentation)

I'd rather do a paper on the topic unless the subject matter is something I am really passionate about, then I would talk about it in an open discussion and present the subject towards the audience.

lol, I feel the same way, I always choose presentation

you can BS a lot, its harder for presentations to be picked apart by the teacher, you can show lots of pretty pictures and material and make everybody interested and making you look good
