Notes: COM231-2B1 John Muir Additional Informative Speech/Annotated Bibliography Notes Reminders for your Informative Speech… Its purpose is to illuminate, educate, and increase awareness of [noun] – person, place, or thing. Clarify your topic by using these 4 methods: Negation “What the subject is NOT” • Contrary to popular belief, Powerade is not a good source of hydration. Example Self-explanatory • For example, I am giving an example. Synonym “Something else that is the same” • Words that mean the same thing: Dull & Blunt, Success & Win, Eager & Excited EtymologyThe origins of words and explanation • For instance, “Godzilla” was originally created, “Gojirah” which means “Gorilla-Whale” in Japanese. Organize your speech with these 7 Patterns/Arrangements: 1. Chronological: List events in order by date, beginning to end. This is one of the most common patterns. 2. Spatial: Emphasize the significance of events by geography; where did [event] happen? Why is that important? This is a good choice for a topic with many locations. 3. Cause-and-Effect: Explain how certain factors are interdependent on one another. Not one of Mr. Muir’s favorites. 4. Problem-Solution: Similar to Cause-and-Effect, this pattern presents a problem and a corresponding solution. 5. Topical: This pattern was Bill Clinton’s favorite. One by one, this pattern goes through an equally-handled laundry list of items. Similar to a grocery or To-Do list. 6. Narrative: Uses Anecdote (personal or non-personal story) 7. Circular: The end is given at the beginning, and the speech circulates around to bring the audience that, “Aha!” moment. Using this pattern successfully will give you 5 points of extra credit! Notes: COM231-2B1 John Muir Annotated Bibliography Sample: Muir, John K. The X-Files FAQ. Milwaukee: Applause Theatre and Cinema Books, 2015. Print. Note: Citation rules must be followed exactly as given by the MLA 7 th Edition (or 8 Ed.) Overview: 1. Cite 5 sources in MLA 7 Ed. format 2. Write a 2 sentence paragraph under each source (summary and review) The summary sentence will give the skeleton basics of the source’s content while the review paragraph is where you will reflect upon and asses the source’s content. Here are a few questions to ask when writing your review sentence:  How does this source differ from other sources?  Who is the intended audience?  How did I use this source in my speech?  Was this source useful? If so, why?  Do not write, “Because it was interesting.” 3. Make sure your title is Annotated Bibliography and centered at the top 4. Double check your 5 citations and list them in alphabetical order from top-to- bottom (A to Z). 5. Write cue cards or create a simple power point to easily present your Annotated Bib. The Informative Speech Rubric may be found on Moodle. *If you have specific questions, contact Mr. Muir and/or consult “Purdue Owl” online. Also, feel free to copy & paste the sample entries given in Moodle for punctuation and customize for your source.
