6 When presenting your speech using a visual…
It is extremely important to keep your focus on the audience. DO NOT read off your power point or poster. Use the visual to enhance your speech, not to replace parts of your speech.

Chronological: details, events are arranged in order, usually for expository speeches Topical order: topic is broken down into parts and then arranged in an order by speaker, most common for expository speeches Spatial order: details arranged according to their position in space, for descriptions. Climatic order: arranges items according to their importance, least to greatest Cause and Effect: show causes/conditions and the effects/results of those causes / conditions Comparison/Contrast: show similarities and differences Introduction: Attention getter: Start off with A question – your audience is forced to listen and think A shocking statement – surprise your audience A story – or anecdote, hook the audience with a relevant story Quotation: make sure it’s relevant Personal reference: relate to the audience’s experience Focus attention on the subject Gain audience’s good will Which of these methods of organization works best for expository speeches?

10 Planning the Body Determine the main points to stress. (There should be three for the expository speech). Organize the main points in a consistent pattern the audience can follow. Outline all material you plan to use in the speech.
