Final Speech Review Speeches will begin May 31 st
Outline An outline can help you organize your ideas before you write your speech. Since all speeches have a defined Introduction, Body (with main ideas, support, and examples) and Conclusion, this should be evident in your outline. Outlines should be MLA formatted. This includes 1 inch margins, MLA heading, Times New Roman 12 point font, and a title. Remember this is a sentence outline, so use full sentences. If you have a 1, you must have a 2, and if you have an A, you must have a B. Don’t forget that your A under your Introduction is your attention getter, and your B is your thesis. The A under your conclusion is your summary of main points, and the B is your clincher.
Source Cards You must include source cards for any quotation or information that you use that is not your own. You must include these for informative, persuasive, and multimedia speeches, and you may need them for special occasion speeches depending on the information you use. Each card should only have one source. The source card should include the quotation or summary of information and the MLA formatted citation.
For All Types of Speeches… Remember for every speech you will need to consider your audience and the presentation requirements. You need a clear introduction (with an attention getter, link, thesis, and preview statement,) developed body (with main ideas, support, examples, and details,) and a conclusion (with a summary of your main points, your thesis restated, and your clincher). You will be graded on your speech and your dynamics of speech (eye contact, volume, tone, vocal variety, speed, poise and posture, and fluency ). Please practice!
Informative Speech The purpose of this speech is to inform your audience about something, such as a person, place, event, or cause. You must consider your audience, so choose a topic they would be interested in. Develop interesting material by using anecdotes, quotations, and experiences. Remember you must have a clear thesis, and it must be supported with facts, examples, & details. Your speech must be organized clearly and logically, and it should also abide by the “Six C’s of Informative Speaking” (The speech should be clear, concise, complete, concrete, & connect).
Demonstration Speech The purpose of this speech is to not only explain, but also show your audience how to do something. Each step of the process that you are demonstrating should help the audience better understand the topic. You will need to use manipulatives to demonstrate your topic, but remember the manipulatives are tools; therefore, they will not be the main focus of your speech. Remember, your speech must have a clear main idea, and your speech must be organized clearly and logically. Remember you will be graded on your dynamics of speech, so practice making eye contact and filling “dead time” with explanations and examples.
Persuasive Speech Persuasion aims to convince an audience to accept a position or take action. An effective persuasive essay should: –Address an issue of concern –Address an issue that has more than one side –Support your position with relevant facts, examples, or experiences –Address the knowledge, concerns, and experiences of your target audience. As with any piece of writing, first you must choose a topic. –Consider: What action do you want your audience to take? –Remember: The more strongly you feel, the better you will argue your point. Addressing your audience –What is your demographic? –What would you like them to do? –How will you appeal to them to support you? –How can you make your audience remember your message? The next step of your persuasive piece is to gather evidence that supports your thesis. This will make your argument even stronger.
Multimedia Speech This type of speech is very similar to the informative speech, but it also involves a visual aid such as a powerpoint or prezi. Remember that you must not only use source cards, but you must also cite the pictures, graphs, illustrations, etc. that you use in your presentation. You may also use video and/or audio clips, but be sure to test them in advance to ensure they will work. Remember, your speech must have a clear thesis, and your speech must be organized clearly and logically. Also, the multimedia tool is an aid; therefore, it will not be the main focus of your speech. Though you will be using a computer for this presentation, do not forget you will still be graded on your dynamics of speech (including eye contact).
Special Occasion Speech Courtesy Speeches Introduction Refer to occasion that has brought the audience together. Name the person (mention the person again at the end of the introduction).
