Example 1: Many Words

This example has many words and it is on one end of the spectrum. The speaker would probably read through it all but also add other ideas and insights.

This is not always the best route to take. What could be done to make it better?

Example 2

This example is on the other end of the spectrum. It has very little text, so most, if not all, of the information will be provided verbally.

This is usually a better route to take than Example 1, but it is not always the best route to take either.

This style would require a separate script.

The speaker should still cite the sources verbally or provide a written script with citations.

Presentation Example

This is an example from one end of the spectrum: the kind of presentation with very few words on the slides.
