A popular podcast from NPR, “This I Believe” asks for listeners and speakers to critically think through the values and worldviews that guide their everyday choices, no matter how small. For this assignment, you will construct your own “This I believe” statement on everyday ethics. Everyday ethics concern minor acts that point to your values. Some examples might include:
Depositing dropped money into a tip jar
Giving money to buskers
Slowing down to allow cars to merge
Making eye contact and smiling with service workers
Chewing food with your mouth closed
Think about how you would complete one of the following sentences:
I believe you should always __________________________.
I believe you should never ___________________________.
While the above statements are rather absolute, your speech may work through some of the qualifiers and complexities of your belief.
Your speech will be delivered in the style of an Ignite speech – a 5-minute speech that is supported by 20 automatically timed slides. While these conditions may feel limiting, such conditions encourage you to be intentional in your linguistic, embodied, and visual rhetoric. 5 minutes is roughly 500 words.
You will provide your TA a draft of your speech and your slides during your section meeting on Thursday October 10th.
You will upload a final copy of your speech to Turnitin by Monday October 21st 11:59pm, and you will perform your speech for your classmates during sections of Week 4.
