Raise a Flag

Olivia Mitchell, of Speaking about Presenting, suggests that you let your audience know (with a flag) what you are about to say in order to help them focus on the information.

Here are her 3 suggestions (or flags):

  1. Here’s the most important thing I want you to get.
  2. There are three reasons why we should do this.
  3. Here’s a question to think about.

This technique can be used when you provide a class handout with fill-in-the-blanks. Let people know when you are about to answer one of the questions on the handout.
