a) I am now really nervous about presenting before you present tomorrow.

b) much of what you say is true about audience and learning how to tell a story, but PowerPoint is a lousy story telling device, unless you do get really creative with it. And few folks do.

c) some of it is also that, much like we love the four-year old's drawing, but if we saw it from a 25 year old, we'd worry, some of it is that not every kid has the developmental skills to really pull off the brilliant presentations yet. But yes, we have to teach them about audience and voice and narrative or developing it will be tougher than it needs to be.

(with that, you should have SEEN the improv going on in Drama at SLA today... nearly made some of us in the audience cry.)
