Potential Speech Formats

by hlegris

So, we’re going to be moving into the speech-outlining-stage this week, which means that we’re getting into the specifics of analyzing others’ speeches and you’ll be crafting your own presentation as well. I’ve already shared a post with you about oral citations, but now I’d like to put out some resources on speech outlining and techniques as well so that you can access this information outside of class. Here is a great general guide to speech outlining (just ignore the ‘face the wind’ part at the bottom), and I also think that you should check out his section on rhetorical devices. All of his links are helpful, especially as we move into the practicing phase, but these are a good beginning.  This page is kind of helpful, too, but more so in terms of the section ‘patterns of exposition’ onward.
