Outline and Sources
One objective we are striving for in this course is to create a detailed preparation outline. By now you should have narrowed down your persuasive speech topic. This week we’ll put together your outline for the speech. You’ll also need to include four sources you’d like to use. You don’t have to use the exact sources for the speech but it’s in place to give a head start on your research.
For the outline, follow the template below. To help in brainstorming you can use the bubble chart below as well. The bubble chart doesn’t need to be included for the submission. It’s just there to help. For the outline give ideas as to what you’d present for each part. For instance if you were to use the topic about cutting back on sugar you can start with an attention getter about the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Then for the main point you can talk about health. Then fill in with other statements that goes with health. Then for the second main point it could be about weight or finding energy from other foods, etc. Remember each point can be brief. Just give an idea of what you think you’d mention. You don’t have to give any research or things like that, just ideas for each point.
Then after your outline copy and paste four sources you may use (they don’t have to be the final sources you’ll use). Paste them like you would in a reference page that I’ll be able to look at the sources for review. If you have any questions please let me know!
