Going Forward: From Research to Speech
Why we’re doing this research.. You are going to speak for your person in a speech, recorded on a computer (the written script should be 1 – 3 pages double spaced) You are going to persuade others on a topic that you know is important to your person. IMPORTANT: If your person has made a speech, you must NOT just paraphrase what he said himself. (Maximum of ONE quoted sentence of something famous he or she has said.)
Step 1: Research Research Pointers/Remarks I will grade the research part by spot checking 2 or 3 cards of the SIX CARDS (MINIMUM) you should have Each card must be connected to a single source You must have two or more sources total in your bibliography
Research Pointers/Remarks (cont’d) In addition to searching on your person’s name, search on things you find are important to him or her For example, for Martin Luther King, the brief biography would tell he was involved with the MONTGOMERY BUS BOYCOTT, and was a leader in the NAACP and SOUTHERN CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP ASSOCIATION. Search on all those topics.
Step 2: Write the Script of Your Speech Now that you know your historical figure well, you are going to SPEAK FOR HIM OR HER. Write in FIRST PERSON on a subject you know he or she feels strongly about. You do NOT have to cite nor quote your research. Use good writing techniques and 5 OR MORE RHETORICAL ELEMENT, which you should underline or high-light and label on print-out. Due date for written speech: Wed, June 4 th

Step 3: Record the Speech on the Computer Begin with title slide (your name and person’s name) Next you need to introduce the person which you could do in one of two ways. – First way: have 2-3 slides with biographical facts. Here the information will be ON THE SLIDES in bullet format. Remember, you must also tell the setting and audience for the speech. Optional extra: you could have music playing while the message is displayed.
SPEECH REQUIREMENTS REVIEW Introduction (cont’d) – Second way: Have a classmate speak a brief introduction that you write, similar to the role the MC at a formal speaking situation would play. There should be pictures or other appropriate slides visible while the MC introduces you The introduction should reveal the AUDIENCE AND SETTING..
SPEECH REQUIREMENTS REVIEW Next come the 4-8 slides that are pictures, photos, sketches, etc. that will show while you speak the person’s message. Here the words of the speech should NOT be typed onto the slides
