Tip # 19: Do a Presentation of Thanks Using PowerPoint-Karaoke
Thank your teacher by organizing a fun improv class activity. PowerPoint-Karaoke is a spin-off from traditional karaoke -- instead of looking to the screen for song lyrics, people present an impromptu presentation based on a random set of slides that they’ve never seen before.
To prep for PowerPoint-Karaoke, just compile a random sampling of images (make them funny!) and put them into a presentation. Then, students can present to their teacher, finding a way to thank/compliment the teacher with each slide. Here’s a useful article on how you can run your own PowerPoint Karaoke with a slide randomizer and here are some plug and play PowerPoint decks. Not a fan of PowerPoint? Try Prezi.
