Persuasive Preparation Outline (50 points)

This outline will follow a persuasive presentation structure discussed by your instructor (i.e., problem-solution, problem-cause-solution, Monroe’s motivated sequence). You must have at least credible seven sources cited in-text and listed on your works cited page.

Further guidelines:

  1. Research: Your outline must include 7 sources. These sources must support and reinforce the main ideas and claims made throughout the outline. These sources must support and reinforce the main ideas and claims made throughout the outline. They must come from credible sources, such as expert interviews, academic journals, and newspapers. The citations must have in-text citations (p. 90) and be properly formatted at the bottom.
  2. Introduction: Your introduction should gain the audience’s attention, provide a clear purpose statement, make the topic and purpose relevant to your audience, establish your credibility, and preview the main points of your presentation. The attention-getter must hook the audience and draw them into the presentation(Chapter 6: Getting People to Listen). The purpose/central idea/thesis statement should narrow the topic. For more information, see Chapter 7: Introductions and Conclusions.
  3. Body: Your structure should make sense for the presentation. It should be arranged logically to present concepts. It should have artfully-constructed transitions between ideas (pp. 144-147). There should be enough material in the body to make the presentation thorough, but not so much that it moves outside the time frame of a 6-7 minute presentation. For more information, see Chapter 8: Outlining and Organizing Speeches.
  4. Conclusion: Your conclusion should summarize your main points, make reference to your introduction if possible, and finish memorably. For more information, see Chapter 7: Introductions and Conclusions.
  5. Style: The outline should also note places where the speaker will use stories, analogies, examples, evidence, and other techniques to liven up and better engage us in the topic. For more information Chapter 5: Using Supporting Materials Effectively. Make sure your outline also features a strong combination of logical and emotional appeals. For more information, see Chapter 15: Foundations of Persuasive Speaking and Chapter 16: Persuasive Speaking Strategies.
