PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ ALL THE FOLLOWING FROM THE ASSIGNMENT.
This assignment is designed to provide you with experience advocating for a position, policy, or organization using Monroe’s Motivated Sequence persuasive strategy. Your goal in this speech is to convince your audience that a problem exists and that your solution should be implemented. Using the Monroe Motivated Sequence to organize your speech, you must ultimately convince your audience to act on your proposal. In doing so, you will need to change beliefs, attitudes, and/or values. Use sound principles of argument, and a variety of motivational appeals such as logos, ethos, and pathos, to persuade the audience. (200 points)
For this speech, you will need to identify some problem that affects the business, professional, or educational fields and propose a solution to this problem.
Submissions and Delivery
You will turn in two written items: a preparation outline with a bibliography or works cited, and your speaking notes in Blackboard. You will deliver your speech while standing up to your assigned classmates or an audience of your choice via POPs Classroom. Six audience members are required. Audience members may be face-to-face or virtual.
Remember: You will need to complete four peer reviews and a self review for this Persuasive Speech in a later week. As a result, if meeting with classmates, choose who you plan to review at the beginning of your session and take notes of their speech. I suggest completing their peer review while you watch their speech. You will need to complete the rubric and make comments as to what the speaker did well and what they can improve upon. Make sure everyone gets reviewed and that everyone has four people to review. If you are unable to meet with your classmates, you can log in to POPs Classroom and review student submissions later.
Overall: All objectives from the second informative speech remain: selection of a good topic, appropriate structure, analysis, evidence, language, audience adaptation, and extemporaneous delivery. The grading scale (A-F) also remains unchanged. The following are some differences from previous speeches:
Organizational method: You must use Monroe’s Motivated Sequence. This should be stated at the top of your outline with each step identified throughout.
Reasoning: Your arguments in support of your thesis (both the problem and the solution). You may discuss alternative positions (those who do not agree with your assessment of the problem or with your specific solution) in order to refute them. However, logical fallacies should be avoided.
Language: In contrast to an informative speech, persuasive speeches should NOT remain neutral in tone – word choice and physical delivery can add to the persuasiveness of your speech.
PowerPoint: You are required to create a PowerPoint presentation for this speech. Make sure to follow the guidelines discussed in your textbook and in class. The PowerPoint should be incorporated throughout your speech.
Maximum 8 slides
PowerPoint should be shown throughout your speech. Remember to share your screen so we see your PowerPoint.
One slide for the intro that previews each main point
One-two slides for each main point with key evidence
One slide for the action step
A preparation outline is due the day you give your speech. Your outline should look similar to the preparation outline samples posted on Blackboard. You should condense this outline into a speaking outline for delivery of the speech. Preparation outlines should include:
At the top of the outline:
Specific purpose statement
Thesis statement. Underline your thesis within the speech.
Organization method (Everyone should use Monroe’s!)
The outline you turn in must be typed in complete sentences.
Identify each section of the outline as Attention Step, Need Step, etc. The Need Step should develop the problem, and the Satisfaction Step should provide the solution. The solution should be detailed and should follow the guidelines for “proving” policy claims discussed in class.
Within the Need, Satisfaction and Visualizations Steps (the “body” of the speech), use standard outline format (Roman numerals for main points, etc.).
Identify all claims and all forms of support.
Include a bibliography.
Remember you must have at least six sources; rules for sources are the same as with previous speeches. You can use a maximum of three web sources. Three nonweb sources are required.
Definition of nonWeb sources: NonWeb sources include journal articles, books, ebooks, magazines, newspapers, interviews, documentaries, etc. These may be accessed online but have gone through some sort of editorial or published process. For example, an article found on a newspaper website would be a web source. A PDF version of a newspaper found on online would be a nonweb source.
Use a standard style sheet (MLA or APA)
Don’t forget that how you cite the source in the speech is more important than how it is formatted in the bibliography!
A PowerPoint presentation is required aid for the speech.
