    FAQ on Assignment 5: Audience Analysis & Outline for Persuasive Speech

Barbara Nixon posted on Jan 5, 2021 6:42 PM

Edited

Where do I find the directions for the Audience Analysis and Speech Outline?

For this course, do I have to create an informative or a persuasive speech?

The assignments in this course require you to persuade your audience to agree with your viewpoint, not just provide information on a topic.

Do I have to use the template you provided for the Audience Analysis and Speech Outline?

Yes. Submissions that do not use the template will be graded as a zero. You’ll find this template a great resource for ensuring you understand the assignment requirements and easy to use.

What is the purpose of the outline?

The outline will help you organize your material for your speech. And if you’re off track, the feedback you receive from me will help you earn a higher grade on your completed speech (Assignment 7).

What is the purpose of the audience analysis?

The more you know about your audience, the better you can tailor your speech to potentially persuade them. For help on analyzing your audience, see Chapter 11 in your online textbook as well as the information on audience analysis in the Module 3 “Lecture” materials under the topic Audience Analysis

Can I pick any topic I want?

Yes, as long as it fits one of the two scenarios in the assignment description.

How should I organize my persuasive outline and speech?

You will use the five steps in Monroe’s Motivated Sequence to organize this outline and speech. Speeches not conforming to this sequence will earn a zero, and you’ll have one opportunity for revision.

Your textbook has a short section on Monroe’s Motivated Sequence in Chapter 22, as well as a sample speech script in Appendix A.

See Module 6 “Lecture,” under the topic Using Monroe’s Motivated Sequence in a Persuasive Speech:

How many sources do I need for this outline and speech?

Two to four sources are enough. You can use one source for more than one of your supporting points.

What if I don’t need to do any research because I know so much about this topic?

Research outside your own personal experience is required in college courses, including this one. Outlines and speeches that are submitted with no sources cited in the body of the assignment or on a reference page earn zero points for the assignment.

It’s been forever since I had to write an assignment. How can I make sure I don’t plagiarize?

In brief, tell me where you got your information from, both in the body of your speech outline and on your reference page.

Use quotation marks if you choose to use the exact words of a source rather than putting the information into your own words.

Make sure that every source mentioned in your speech appears in the reference page, and that every source in your list of references appears in your speech.

For more tips on how to avoid plagiarizing, visit the Ashworth College Learning Resource Center

Do I just put a list of the URLs that I used at the end of my assignment to show what sources I used?

No. You will need to briefly cite your sources in your speech outline, and also provide a list of the sources you used at the end on a References page.

For a reminder on how to cite sources,

How will this assignment be graded?
