COLLEGE WRITING BUILDING YOUR ARGUMENT
SWBAT DEVELOP THEIR ARGUMENT INTO AN ORAL PRESENTATION USING ETHOS, PATHOS, LOGOS DO NOW: Read over the handout. It reinforces how to use ethos, pathos, and logos
THE TASK Creating a persuasive argument. It needs to be at least one minute (in order to receive a passing grade) You need to integrate one or more of the strategies listed. Direct reference to the story.
ESSENTIAL PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS 1. Research a topic – Good speakers stick to what they know. Great speakers research what they need to convey their message. Focus – Help your audience grasp your message by focusing on your message. Stories, humour, or other “sidebars” should connect to the core idea. Anything that doesn’t needs to be edited out. Organize ideas logically– A well-organized presentation can be absorbed with minimal mental strain. Bridging is key. SOURCE: every-public-speaker-should-have/
ESSENTIAL PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS Master metaphors – Metaphors enhance the understandability of the message in a way that direct language often can not. Tell a story – Everyone loves a story. Points wrapped up in a story are more memorable, too! Start strong and close strong – The body of your presentation should be strong too, but your audience will remember your first and last words (if, indeed, they remember anything at all). Incorporate humour – Knowing when to use humour is essential. So is developing the comedic timing to deliver it with greatest effect. Vary vocal pace, tone, and volume – A monotone voice is like fingernails on the chalkboard.
ESSENTIAL PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS Punctuate words with gestures – Gestures should complement your words in harmony. Tell them how big the fish was, and show them with your arms. Complement words with visual aids – Visual aids should aid the message; they should not be the message. Analyze your audience– Deliver the message they want (or need) to hear. Connect with your audience – Eye contact is only the first step. Aim to have the audience conclude “This speaker is just like me!” The sooner, the better.
ESSENTIAL PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS Craft and introduction – Set the context and make sure the audience is ready to go, whether the introduction is for you or for someone else. Exhibit confidence and poise – These qualities are sometimes difficult for a speaker to attain, but easy for an audience to sense. Listen critically and analyze other speakers – Study the strengths and weakness of other speakers. Act and speak ethically – Since public speaking fears are so common, realize the tremendous power of influence that you hold. Use this power responsibly.
THE HOOK You many not want to start with Marie is the guilty one because a lot of other people might use that method. Think about grabbing the attention of your audience from the very start. You might try to use pathos (emotional appeal) We have all made mistakes….
WHAT I NEED TODAY I want to see your hook and an outline of your argument
TAKE BACK YOUR DRAFT It needs work. Go back and think about a better hook/introduction. Think about the points you want to make Think about the textual evidence you are going to be able to use to support your ideas.
SHARE Let’s hear from at least 2 people. Read your introduction.
