Pick something that your audience will be interested in and find creative ways to relate that topic to the audience. Explain why this topic is important to us and why we would care about it. Think of topics that you are passionate about, that are current, interesting and can appeal to your audience.
Remember, a strong introduction is a MUST in “setting up” the speech. Four things to remember:
o Capture your audience’s ATTENTION at the outset (do NOT say hello & just state topic)
o Relate the topic to your audience. Motivate the audience to continue listening by clearly
stating the value or benefits to THEM knowing what you are about to show them.
o Establish your credibility on the topic by mentioning your first-hand experience, why you chose topic or your connection to topic.
o End your Introduction by stating the “main points” you will be covering.
In order for your speech to be effective, the audience needs to follow along and understand your Main Points. Your speech should include 3-4 Main Points, which need to be explained fully. Remember to pick an organizational pattern and use transitions throughout speech so that we can follow along.
The purpose of this speech is to convey knowledge on the subject matter. Be sure to include information that the audience would not normally know. Wow us with interesting facts so that we learn something new and interesting. Remember, you are now the educator/teacher.
Try to show some energy and enthusiasm. If you appear bored or reluctant, your audience will be also. Be creative and get excited about your topic. Remember, you are the teacher and you can’t wait to teach us. Show a sincere desire to share the information with us.
For this speech you have 5-6 minutes to explain your ideas which means, you need to clearly inform us in the allotted time. This requires you to pick out the most important points and support them in a clear, concise manner in the allotted time. Time Matters, speech must be at least 5 minutes minimum!
This speech requires that you conduct research to find materials that will bring your ideas across clearly and creatively. Your supporting materials must be from accurate, relevant and credible sources. Evidence should also be current and up to date. You should include various types of evidence (Testimony, Statistics, Examples, Quotations, etc…) from credible sources and use them to back up your main points. You must also cite the evidence properly to enhance the credibility of your speech.
o You must have at least 5 ORAL CITATIONS during your speech.
o Tell us specifically WHO said WHAT, WHEN they said it, and WHERE you found the information. If you don’t—it is considered Plagiarism!!!
Remember: Informing an audience is not about telling us what YOU think, but about telling us what experts say, what scholars have stated, what researchers have proven, what people who have experienced something can testify to. Make sure your sources are credible and reliable.
“Signal” the end of the speech. Let the audience know you’re finished with a strong closing!
o “Signal” the end of the speech is coming (ex: “in conclusion…”)
o BRIEFLY review your main points OR some part of the speech you most want your audience to remembe
o Finish with a strong, memorable closing. Often, the easiest way to do this is by simply referring back to your attention getter. AVOID saying “that’s it” at the ending!
Visual Aids
You must have a visual aid for this speech and it must be POWER POINT. You can use additional items if you want to. Your visual should be incorporated into your speech naturally and should be used to clarify or enhance the information you have told us. Make sure they are BIG enough for everyone to see! Practice with your visual to become familiar with using power point slides during a presentation.
Overall Effective Delivery
This is best achieved through PRACTICING your speech OUT LOUD. Practice A LOT!!!
o Establish strong eye contact in your introduction and maintain throughout the speech.
o Speak extemporaneously, naturally and conversationally. Prepare your SPEAKING OUTLINE so that it contains the IDEAS you want to remember, not the exact wording you will use. No full sentences! Do not read
Materials Handed into me!
Your works cited page should be in MLA or APA format and you should have at least 5 sources. You will present with your outline.
