You will be required to submit an outline, verbal citation page, and a reference page using APA style. These documents must be submitted before you record your speech.
Time: 5 minutes. If your speech is over 6:30 I will ask you record again and resubmit.
Now that you have selected a topic and found three sources, it is time to develop an outline and verbal citation page. The outline will be exactly like the attached example. You will have an introduction, body, and conclusion. In the body of your speech you will have three key points that will each have three sub points. Please look at my example to see how to do an outline. Also, keep in mind you will be speaking extemporaneously so your sentences should still be BRIEF.
Here are some additional notes about the outline:
Development notes: (You will find it most helpful to have the example outline printed so you are able to follow along with the instructions)

Introduction: You will start your speech with an attention getter. (This is A. in your intro.) This should be catchy, creative, and grab your audiences attention. The attention getter is something extra that is not repeated in the body of your speech. Then you have a purpose statement. (This is B. in your intro.) See example. The main purpose of the purpose statement is to alert the audience of what you will be discussing in your speech. The final part of your introduction is your preview statement. This is where you alert your audience of what three main ideas you will be discussing in your speech. You need to use signposts (words of time) to alert the audience of the order. Again, see example.
Body: Your speech body will have your three key points and three sub points under each key point. The main goal here is to write brief sub points that you can then look up and elaborate from. Use only one brief complete sentence per sub point.See example. Don’t forget to use your signposts in the key points to help establish your transitions. Tip: You are pretty much reading directly from your outline and elaborating after each sub point.
Conclusion: The main goal of your conclusion is to remind the audience of your content. You start your conclusion with a summary statement. This is identical to the preview statement in your introduction except for it becomes past tense. (see outline example). You finish your outline with the tie back to the attention getter. This is where you reference your attention getter from the introduction and tie it all together. It must use similar phrasing so it clearly connects. On the outline you are only allowed to use one sentence but you may say more than that.
Now you are ready to start your outline! Your outline should look EXACTLY like the attached example. Remember to write in complete sentences and use only one sentence per line. Use the attached document as your template and write directly over it.
