Public Speaking

The outline is an important part of speech development. You will be required to submit an outline with your speech as part of the speech grade. If you need to tweak anything, you will be notified in your feedback section and will need to send a revised one with your final speech.

The final outline contains ALL information you include in the speech. You will not just read from the outline, but through practice and preparation, the content will be very similar to what you actually say in the speech.

This week you will be writing a “preparation outline.” This outline include a visual framework and required information IN COMPLETE SENTENCES. I encourage you to write as much as possible so I may review it and provide you with feedback. One area that I do not expect you to have fully developed is the sub-points. This is where the support material of your speech is located.

Below you will see a place for sub-points with the word “optional” next to it. This means that you do not have to include sub-points. All other information is required.

Using the following visual framework, provide information related to the required element of the speech. Nothing should be deleted from the text below. I need to see each aspect properly labeled. 

I. Introduction

A. Gaining attention – please describe the attention gaining device you plan to use in the speech.

B. Specific Purpose Statement (Review textbook to make sure you are doing this correctly)

C. Credibility – explain how you will establish your credibility

D. Preview Statement – you will need to provide the one-sentence preview statement. You can also include information you plan to use to establish your central theme.

Transition – if you are not combining the transition and internal preview, provide the transition here.

II. Body

A. Internal Preview – provide the internal preview statement that defines this main point.

1. sub-point (optional)

Transition – if you are not combining the transition and internal preview, provide the transition here.

B. Internal Preview – provide the internal preview statement that defines this main point.

1. sub-point (optional)

Transition – if you are not combining the transition and internal preview, provide the transition here.

C. Internal Preview – provide the internal preview statement that defines this main point.

1. sub-point (optional)

III. Conclusion

A. Signal the end –  transition to the conclusion of the speech. Use appropriate sign-posts.

B. Internal summary

C. Closing Remarks

*If you are using the problem/solution or cause/effect organizational pattern, you may only have 2 main points in the body of the speech. If you are using any of the other organizational options, you are required to have three main points.
