In order to have a successful group presentation, a certain degree of decorum is required. Our English classes over the years have worked out the following rules of etiquette.

  1. Speak quietly.
  2. Take turns talking.
  3. Talk one person at a time.
  4. Refrain from bringing up non-topic subjects.
  5. Elect a leader to moderate the discussion.
  6. Show positive body language.
  7. Disagree kindly, with a calm tone and non-aggressive words.
