Instructions for Project IV Speech Outline Rough Draft:
Based on stasis, identify the type of argument you will be arguing in the speechs title. The type of argument (fact, definition, quality, policy or a combination) that you need to argue will be based on the type of argument that peers’ are mostly arguing about this issue to maintain stasis. Use your knowledge of stasis and the different argument types to help you organize the speech and select the speech content. Also, select an organizational structure from the textbook (pgs. 662-669 chronological, cause/effect, spatial, topical/categorical, problem/solution, etc.) to use for the speech outline. Your Project IV rough draft speech outline should be written in complete sentences and contain the following:
State in the speech title what type of argument you are arguing, maintain stasis with the peer audience throughout the speech, an introduction that gets the audiences attention, a statement of purpose, 3-4 or more key ideas with supported evidence, examples, and stories covertly tailored to your audiences values, use sign posts (1st, 2nd, now, then, lastly, etc.), verbally cite at least 3 sources, a conclusion that gets the audiences attention, and a works cited page.
Elevated speeches will incorporate figurative language, memorable techniques, sentences of transition, and review/restate main ideas in the middle of the speech to remind the audience of the speech’s main ideas.
Be sure to respond to the Project IV prompt in which you are arguing about your chosen social/political issue to persuade your peer audience to either change their mindset or actions toward the issue.
