Students will develop a research-based full-sentence outline either describing a specific event, person, place, process or demonstrate a specific skill, process, or procedure to the audience. Students must research the subject and provide a fact-filled speech providing verbal citations of the references used. Students must list a minimum of five sources in the bibliography and verbally cite three of those sources in the speech itself when citing a fact, statistic, or quote. Students may attach the PowerPoint/Prezi slide show with the Outline or can paste PPT to the Presentation. The speech outline will contain an introduction (attention-getter, credibility, thesis statement, and preview of points), body (clearly laid out moving from one point to another), and a conclusion (summary of points and clincher).
A sample speech outline is made available in the Discussion.
