Informative Speech Directions
This speech isâ€¯meant to be either an expository speech (events, theory, creative) or a speech of process (how to do it, how to make it, how it works) and will utilize definitions, narrations, demonstrations, etc. to facilitate an audience’s understanding of a topic.â€¯
The speech should be extemporaneous in nature and should not be fully scripted.â€¯ An organizational pattern must be clearly identifiable (i.e. topical, time-order, etc.) as well as transitions to guide the flow of the presentation.â€¯ Remembering the rhetorical situation, it is important to choose a topic you feel comfortable presenting and is appropriate for the audience that you will present to.â€¯ â€¯
For specific values of the presentation, a rubric is provided for review within Canvas (also below).
Length: 4-6 minutes. Deduction of 5 points for every 30 seconds under/over the time
IMPORTANT NOTE: Speeches should be recorded in 720P to ensure the file is small enough to upload. An upload to YouTube is recommended to avoid file size issues.
(i.e. 6:01 = -5 points, 6:31 = -5 points, 7:00 = -5 points). All speeches will be cut off regardless at 7:00 min.
