DECADE SPEECH GUIDELINES INFORMATIVE DECADE SPEECH Students must narrow speech topic and use one organizational pattern. Once you have narrowed it to one topic from your decade and narrowed that topic (For example if you have 1940 and you cannot do WWII as a whole. Choose something like 1 particular battle or just focus on the weapons. Another example would be if you have 1950’s, you cannot do “3 people that influenced rock and roll”, that would be too broad. You would but focus on one like Elvis Presley. You will have to narrow that event down significantly). Here are some examples which cannot be used for your speech: SPS: (1950’s) To inform college students about the uniqueness of Elvis Presley. OP: Topical Costumes Dance Moves SPS: (1750’s) To inform college students about Benjamin Franklin’s discovery of electricity. OP: Chronological Curiousity of lightening Experiments conducted in thunderstorms Lightening form electricity SPS: (1910’s) To inform college students about the levels of the Titanic Ship. OP: Spatial Upper Deck Middle Deck Lower Deck You may NOT do a demonstration speech or a condition speech/medical topic, OR any of the student example topics. Also, the topic you choose needs to have been significant during your decade, not a person “born or died” in that decade. Choose a person, object, place, OR event. AMERICAN HISTORY ONLY You need to choose ONE of these 3 types of organizational patterns: topical, chronological, or spatial. Introduction: The introduction should compel the audience to listen (with an attention getter)…and contain all of the steps to complete the introduction and don’t read it. Body: You will have to develop each main point using the 4’s. Once the main points and organizational pattern are set, incorporate 2-3 different sources and use at least one WITHIN each main point. Make sure that you cite your sources orally in the body of the speech as you are delivering your presentation. Cannot use Wikipedia as one of your sources. Conclusion: All informative speeches should include a brief summary of the main points. An effective conclusion leaves the audience thinking about the speaker’s message as you connect the closing w/attention-getter and don’t’ read it. One visual aid will be required and shown in the body. No more than 2 VA can be used. A typed outline is mandatory and it must follow my outline example format on back side. Use only key words, 6 words or less in your sub-points and 3 words or less in your sub-sub-points. Max A-C, and 1-2. 2 COPIES ‘SAME’ MANADATORY (ONE FOR YOU AND ONE FOR THE INSTRUCTOR).
