SPEAKING PERSUASIVELY: Your goal as a persuasive speaker is to influence your audience to support your point of view or to take an action.
In order to successfully argue your point, you must not only show the merit of your idea, but you must also refute the opposition. Good persuasive speakers understand and acknowledge the other side to their argument, but provide sufficient evidence to prove their view is correct.
Use the following outline to help you set up any persuasive paper or speech: Attention Step: Introduction The NEED Step: Explain the problem or controversy. Provide the other side. The SATISFACTION Step: Explain HOW things need to change to solve your problem/controversy The VISUALIZATION Step: Visually explain BOTH sides The ACTION Step: Conclude with calling your audience to action. How can your audience show their support or give their help?
PERSUASIVE ARGUMENT STRUCTURE Introduction - Inform the listeners about the issue at hand. State the facts that surround the situation. Use at least ONE of the Ethical Appeals.
PERSUASIVE ARGUMENT STRUCTURE State your case - Discuss why your way is the best way. Share evidence and expert opinions supporting your position. Explain how the other side is wrong or illogical. USE ETHOS and LOGOS here.
PERSUASIVE ARGUMENT STRUCTURE SATISFY YOUR AUDIENCE: This is a step-by-step explanation of the change or solution that needs to occur for your problem or issue that you described in the need step. It needs to be realistic and thorough.
PERSUASIVE ARGUMENT STRUCTURE This is a tactic used to tell the audience: 1. What the future will be like without your plan and 2. What the future will be like with your plan. This step must contain BOTH PARTS. It has nothing to do with having to show visuals like the personal experience speech. You must verbally describe the two scenarios in detail.
PERSUASIVE ARGUMENT STRUCTURE Conclude that your position is superior – Be confident in your closing. Based upon all the information just provided, your audience must believe that your way is, indeed, the only way. YOU MUST ALSO GIVE YOUR AUDIENCE A “CALL TO ACTION” Give them a way to support your position. Give them a reason TO DO SOMETHING to right the wrong.
