SPEECH MUST FOLLOW THIS OUTLINE: when writing, please put the header for each section. Remember: this is a speech so does not need to be EXTREMELY formal.
Aristotelian Persuasive Outline
- Attention Gainer (Source?)
- Establish Significance (Source).
- Thesis. Make sure to clearly state your claim (thesis) and how it is important.
- Establish ill (2 Sources). Remember you do this both quantitatively and qualitatively.** What exactly is the problem? Who is it affecting? How many people is it affecting or does it have the potential to affect? Do you have stories about people that have been hurt of affected by this problem?Transition
- Establish Blame (2 Sources). Who or what is responsible for the ill?(Inherency)**Where is this problem coming from? Are the people in the room causing it? Is it coming from corporate or government policy?Transition
- Provide us with a cure. (Solutions steps). (2 Sources). What can we do about this problem? This is the most important part of your speech! You must address the inherency established in point B.** What exactly can we do to solve or prevent this problem?
- Review and restate thesis
- Tie back into attention gainer and/or leave us something to think about.
Objective: The goal of your speech is to get your audience to do something to make their world better. This must be an audience-centered speech where you identify some sort of problem that may affect us and then give us ways to solve or prevent this problem. This is not an ideological speech.
- The speech must be between 6-8 minutes. Speeches that go up to thirty seconds over or under will lose five points. Speeches that go between 30 seconds to one minute over or under will lose 10 points. Speeches over one minute over or under will lose 15 points.
- You must have at least seven (7) sources in your speech. Sources are where you get your information. These can be magazines, academic journals or newspapers. All the information in the speech must be from a source. You will saying your sources out loud during your speech. You will lose 5 points for each source less than 7 not in the body of your speech.
- You must turn in a full copy of your entire speech with the parts and sources highlighted and/or bolded and a Works Cited (MLA) or Reference Page (APA). Your speech must look like the sample speech I have provided.
- Visual aids are not required. However, the right visual aid can add tremendous weight to your argument (as well as points).
- The speech must have personal solution or action steps. Telling the audience that a problem exists is not enough. You need to let us know what we can do to overcome these problems. When you research your topic, look for any possible solution to this problem. You will find many if you research and read the articles carefully. If you do not have solution steps that that audience can implement you will earn an automatic two grade loss.
Again, you must give the people in our classroom something to do!!!!!
- The key to this speech is to use evidence, structure and delivery well enough to move your audience’s threshold to the point of action.
Can begin with a story for your attention getter. Have included a link to a story I have found.
