Discussion: Story Elements.

The elements of story can be bold or boring, factual or fiction, and may give rise to a call for action or may leave a listener uninterested and disengaged. Speeches are one form of storytelling where a listener is engaged through sight, sound, and context inherent in the power of “pull.”

To Prepare

Review the Learning Resources.
Consider at least two (2) speeches (other than Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mandela) from the websites listed in your Learning Resources.
By Day 3
Post an evaluation of the purpose, the context, and the words, phrases, metaphors, and symbols that you felt were particularly effective in their stories.
