This rapport is a study of how to create a workshop that gives high school students concrete tools in building and giving presentations. Through use of rhetorical and pedagogical theory, combined with interviews with high school students, a workshop is made. This workshop is then tried out on two high school classes, followed by them filling out questionnaires regarding the workshop, and interviews with two teachers who have been observing the workshop. Based on this research, the study reaches several conclusions. First of all, shaping the langue to the students’ level of understanding is the key in creating a successful workshop. Subsequently, extensive use of examples is of the outmost importance in making this happen. Examples makes the theory easy to understand, and can relate it to the lives of the students. Secondly, practical exercises play a crucial role in a successful workshop. Not only explaining the students the different tools for good presentations, but actually making them work with the tools, gives the students experience with the tools, and makes them aware of their own strengths and weaknesses. So a combination of presenting the concrete tools in a language the students can understand through examples, and making them work with the tools in a practical exercise, creates a workshop that successfully gives the students concrete tools in building and giving presentations.
