Velarde Marta Velarde Professor Jamie Wiles COMM 130 30 September 2016 Chapter 9: Organizing and Outlining you Speech Before Lecture topics: ● Big part of ​speech​ is ​do your research! ● On outline, have your ​references page ● APA is referred as References Page, MLA is Works Cited ● Exam is October 14, 2016 and 882 scantron (multiple choice and true/false based exam) ● Exam (Midterm) based on the readings and lecture notes from Friday's lecture ● If you go to Hawth Center then have your visual aids with you to practice Why organize your speech? ➔ Organizing your speech is a way to put your thoughts and materials together in logical order ➔ Organization also helps to: ◆ Make sense of your speech for yourself ◆ Make sense of the speech for your audience ● Audience should have a mindset of what they will expect ● If topics are boring, it is up to you to make them excited ● Keep your audience excited about your speech (power pose, move around, hand gestures, etc.) Types of linear patterns (think Aristotle-- he liked logic) ➔ Speech organized in a linear fashion leads the audience through ordered, logical steps. 5 types that the book defines Velarde ◆ opical (from most important to other points, what is your topic and bringing it back to your topic, order that seem to fit well) ◆ Cause and effect ◆ Problem- solution ◆ Chronological (dates from the past to the present, ordered that they occurred, ​Eg. From the first comic book of Batman to the most recent movies of first TV show) ◆ Spatial ● (What are some examples of topics that would fit best w/ a specific type of organizational pattern) Types of Configural Patterns (think Buddhism) ➔ Speech org. In a configural fashion is anything that isn't organized in a traditional western, linear fashion. It does not fit into the box. ◆ Narrative- long story you would be giving with a purpose ● Web - idea in the middle, everything surrounds it ● Problem- no solution ● Multiple perspective- looking into different opinions from places around the world Simple rules for outlining ➔ Begin with title ➔ Specify a purpose statement indicating your intent ➔ Specific thesis statement by laying out your central claim ➔ Include an introduction, body, and conclusion More Rules for outlining Velarde ➔ Introduction ◆ Attention getter ◆ Preview main points ➔ Body of speech ◆ At at least 2 main points (I and II) ◆ Main points are followed by at least 2 sub points (A & B) ◆ Sometimes sub points are divided further (make sure they are in bullet points and in sentence form) ➔ Conclusion ◆ Summary (a review of what you said in your speech) ◆ Memorable closing statement (make you audience want more) ➔ References ◆ Only list those references used in the speech (only 2 required, everything you say should match what your reference shows) Transitions and signpost ➔ Transitions: So, therefore, this, and , but, although, nonetheless, closely related to (change from one topic to another) ➔ Signpost: First, second, third; In conclusion, To preview, In review subsequently, finally (order)
