  • Tribute speech

    REQUIREMENTS: Description: In the tribute speech (also known as a speech of encomium or as a panegyric) you must offer praise for a person. This is a special occasion speech: Any context or setting in which this could happen is acceptable. The speech could be a eulogy, a speech of introduction, a wedding toast, etc. However, it cant be a speech in which you praise an institution; it cant be a speech in which you roast the person. This person you praise must be a REAL person whom you PERSONALLY know. A family member, a friend, or a mentor would all be acceptable choices. The person can neither be me (Russell Hanes) nor can it be you. Emotion: It is crucial that the speech is sincere but not overly emotional. Of course, there should be emotion involved. You should attempt to rouse an emotion (mournful or jubilant) in the audience. Strive for the middle ground between no emotion and too much emotion. You can tell both the good and the bad side of your person, but in the main, you should be praiseful. A bad way to start: Well, the best thing I can say about him is that hes dead now. Humor is acceptable, as long as its contextually appropriate! Time limit: The time limit is 3 to 4 minutes. If you are within the time limit, you will receive one point. If you miss the time limit by less than 15 seconds either way (e.g. 2:46 or 4:14), you will receive 0.5 points. If you miss the time limit by more than 15 seconds, you will receive no Time points. Question-and-answer: At the end of your speech, there will be a brief a question-and-answer period. Visual aids: No visual aids are required. A LARGE photograph of the person is okay. Note cards: You may use note cards if you like, but you are not required to. What you may not do is fully write out your speech: you may not read from a prepared text. Each note card should have only a few major points written, for ease of reading. Outline: Outlines, in proper outline format, are due before the speeches begin. Dress: Comfortably. The Points Breakdown is on next page.

  • Sales/persuasive speech

    REQUIREMENTS: Description: In the sales speech, you will persuade your audience to buy your product. However, the sales speech also demands excellent ethos: Your audience must trust you completely. Focus on your credibility as a speaker, in every word, gesture, and in your entire manner. Choose a REAL product or process to sell to your audience. For those of you who dislike the idea of selling something, there is second option of giving a straight persuasive speech. You may give a persuasive speech to encourage your audience to make charitable donations or to volunteer time (to a not-for-profit organization). Ethics: Please do not make up a product or process or charity, or lie about the product or process or charity. Please also openly and honestly address any problems with the product or process, if necessary. Please note: You are NOT the company (or charity) representativeif you use company information about the product (e.g., from the companys website), then you must CITE the source appropriately. Citations: You need at least ONE oral citation of from where you got your information. A proper oral citation will include both the SOURCE (or author) and the YEAR; for a website, this includes the websites name and when you downloaded the information. (See the reading from Letteri on proper format and use of an oral citation.) You must also have a WRITTEN CITATION on your outline in APA style. Time limit: The time limit is 4 to 5 minutes. Time will work differently with this speech. You will receive a proportional deduction. If you speak for 3:00 or 6:00, you missed the time limit by 1 minute, and so your speech grade will be multiplied by 0.77 to calculate your final grade. If you speak for 2:30 or 6:30, you missed the time limit by 1.5 minutes, so 0.55 will be multiplied to calculate your grade. Question-and-answer: At the end of your speech, there will be a brief question-and-answer period. Visual aids: No visual aids are required. If youd like to bring in a LARGE photograph of the object that you are selling, that is okay. Note cards: You may use note cards if you like, but you are not required to have them. What you may not do is fully write out your speech: you may not read from a prepared text. Each note card should have only a few major points written. It is easier to read. Outline: Outlines, in proper MONROES MOTIVATED SEQUENCE format, are due before the speeches begin. Please attach your written citation(s), in proper APA style, to your outline. Dress: It is best to dress as you would for a real sales speech: professionally. The Points Breakdown is on the next page.

  • Informative/intercultural speech

    REQUIREMENTS: Description: The intercultural speech is a chance to build your audiences knowledge base about another culture. It is an informative speech; in a sense, you are teaching the class new material. Even within the U.S., there are many different culturesfor example, deaf culture is very different from the mainstream U.S. culture. What you may not do is cover a culture with which we can reasonably expect the class to already be familiar (e.g., it is not acceptable to talk about mainstream U.S. culture). You must also talk about a culture of which you are NOT a part. For example, if you are a skater, you may NOT talk about skater culture. Ethics: For the reason that youre introducing a new culture to the class, you will need to be very cognizant of your audience and be culturally sensitive to the new culture. Citations: You need at least SIX oral citation of from where you got your information. A proper oral citation will include both the SOURCE (or author) and the YEAR; for a website, this includes the websites name and when you downloaded the information. (See the reading from Letteri on proper format and use of an oral citation.) You must also have a WRITTEN CITATION on your outline in APA style. Time limit: The time limit is 5 to 6 minutes. You will receive a proportional deduction. If you speak for 4:00 or 7:00, you missed
