Persuasive Speech Slides & Speaking

Notes
For Module 7 Assignment, you will prepare a PowerPoint presentation based on the outline you created and submitted in Module 5. (Use the feedback you receive from your professor on your outline to help you prepare the speech.)

See FAQ on Assignment 7: Persuasive Speech Slides & Speaking Notes.

At a minimum, the presentation should include the following elements:

Title Slide
Body of Your Presentation
Attention
Need
Satisfaction
Visualization
Action
References
The body of your presentation should be a minimum of five slides (not including the title slide and references slide), but you can use more slides if you choose. Your slides must include either speaker notes placed in the “notes” section of the slide or you should record audio on each slide. References should be written in proper APA formatting.

Instructions:
The Notes panel of your slides will contain your speech script; this will be word-for-word exactly what you would say to accompany each slide. Be sure to read your speech aloud several times so that you’re confident that the language you’re using sounds conversational and not like a term paper or essay. Remember to use transitional words and phrases to make your speech flow smoothly.

It’s critical to cite the sources that back up your points and subpoints. Citing sources orally (as you would be doing for a speech) is different from citing them in a paper. For a refresher on how to do this, see Citing Sources Orally the Announcements in this course. Speeches that do not include sources cited in the body of the speech and on the reference page will earn a zero.

When you are ready to submit your slides and script, you must save your slides in a format with the slides on the top of a page, with the accompanying notes (your script) beneath each slide, as seen below.

Do not submit a PowerPoint file. Instead, print your notes pages to PDF, or export your presentation to Word, and choose the layout with “notes below slides.” I must be able to see both your slide and script on the same page; if not, your speech will be returned with a zero for a grade, and you will have one opportunity to revise.

See the course announcement How to Put Speaker Notes & Slide on Same Page for details.

Be sure to review the FAQ for this assignment in the course announcements, as it will be a great resource for you as you get started turning your outline into a speech.
