Purpose: To give an extemporaneous persuasive speech (planned, researched, practiced in advance). The speech must try to influence people to change their beliefs or behaviors and must contain college-level academic content based on research.
Due date: 6/26
· Time limit: 6-8 minutes for the entire speech. The time includes the introduction, body, and conclusion but not the question and answer period or the critique session.
· Topic: Study Pearson Chapters 11-13. Choose a narrow, controversial issue important to you, relevant to your audience, and realistic for the timeframe. Avoid choosing “old” topics such as abortion, death penalty, euthanasia, and others unless you choose a new slant or focus. There are so many possible topics.
Write your topic as a question. Choose question of fact, value, or policy that can be answered with Yes or No. Here is an example of each type of question:
Question of fact– Would email “postage” reduce the amount of spam sent over the Internet? (FACT= is it true?)
Question of value– Is charging “postage” for email fair to users of the Internet? (VALUE= use value words: fair, good, bad, etc.)
Question of policy– Should the government charge a fee for all email sent over the Internet? (POLICY= use the word ‘should’)
· Purpose: [reminder: the purpose, question, and proposition all use the same key words and concepts]
Hints for writing the specific purpose: Include in the purpose the action, belief, or attitude you wish them to adopt. Always have a specific purpose in mind before you give a speech. The specific purpose focuses on the audience, not on you!! Tell what you want the speech to accomplish. A specific purpose is similar to a behavioral objective teachers write for their lesson plans; it should be something you can measure with a test of some kind. It is not your goal. It is what you want the audience to get out of your speech.
Write the Specific Purpose at the top of your planning outline. Write — I want my audience to and then include these three elements in an appropriate order: WHO WHY WHAT.
who listens
why they listen
what the topic is
I want my friends and family
to believe
email “postage” would reduce the amount of spam sent over the Internet.
Example: I want my coworkers to agree that charging “postage” for email is unfair to users of the Internet.
Example: I want my friends and family to support the government’s efforts to charge a fee for all email sent over the Internet.
· Hints for writing the Proposition:
The proposition is similar to the thesis. This is a statement of the central idea. Proposition of fact: Email “postage” will reduce the amount of spam sent over the Internet.
Proposition of value: Charging “postage” for email is unfair to users of the Internet.
Proposition of policy: The government should charge a fee for all email sent over the Internet.
· Email your persuasive speech topic: Before the end of Mod 3/Part 1, after you read the material in Mod.3 and in Pearson, send me an email message with your topic.
· Audience Analysis: Ask 8 or more adults to be your audience for your persuasive speech. Your audience will be your family/those you reside with and any you feel comfortable spending time with! ALSO, include a couple other audience members on FaceTime/Skype. Get as close to 8 as possible. Make the reservation with them and plan the location in advance. Study Pearson and the information here. To effectively persuade an audience, you must have in-depth information about the demographic and socio-psychological factors related to the audience and topic, especially their attitude toward the issue. Create your audience analysis questionnaire. Use the information to write an audience analysis paragraph at the top of your outline to help you customize your speech for your particular audience.
· Research: You must cite a minimum of 5 authoritative sources. Use a variety of books, magazines, newspapers, websites, interviews, and pamphlets. Explore the St. Pete College online library. Avoid using websites of questionable authority. Consider doing an interview to get an expert’s opinion. Do not use Wikipedia. AND, don’t forget to verbally state the sources in your speech!
· Choose a framework: Pearson and I present various patterns to develop your idea. You must keep in mind your audience and topic.
· Write an outline: Include the audience analysis at the top of the outline. Also read the Guidelines and Requirements to write an outline and look at the sample persuasive outline. Avoid writing a composition or manuscript and converting it to an outline. Work with main ideas and key concepts. Do your research and choose supporting details that show you have tailored your speech to meet the needs of your particular audience.
· Works Cited or Reference List: Include a Works Cited or Reference list at the end of the outline after your conclusion with a minimum of 5 sources. Use a variety of sources. Points will be deducted if all sources are magazines, or all are newspapers, or all are just commercial websites. You must use a variety of websites: a magazine article, a government site, and a newspaper, for example. Do not use general dictionaries or encyclopedias. Use MLA or APA format.
· Cite sources in the speech/establish credibility: You must cite each author/source at least once during the speech and then mention again where necessary.
· Presentation Aids: You must use at least one presentation aid. Consider using a poster, PowerPoint, objects, etc. Your goal is to make your topic visual. If you cite any statistics or give chronological information such as dates, put the information on a poster or PowerPoint presentation. Refer to Pearson for guidelines. The person who records your speech must briefly tape the aid, but the camera should be on you during the speech.
· Delivery: Stand to give your speech. Speak from 3-4 regular sized note cards with key words. Please avoid reading info. from your notes to your audience. Practice, practice, practice in the same position you will use for your speech. Look at the audience, not the webcam.
· Question and Answer Period: Record the Q&A. This is not part of the time limit, but it is part of your grade. After you finish your speech, ask the audience if they have any questions. Make sure this is recorded.
· Audience Critiques: Record the audience critique session. When questions are over, remain in the room and ask one of the audience members to be in charge of the critique session. The audience will then offer verbal complimentary and constructive comments to let you know what you did well and what you need to work on.
4. Evaluation of oral presentation: Your speech will be graded according to the points listed below. Use this list as a checklist when you practice to be sure you earn all the points when you give the speech. Your audience analysis and outline will be graded on how accurate, complete, correct, and useful they are.
