For this speech, you will attempt to move your audience or persuade them to think, do or feel something. Choose a topic that lends itself to research and reasoning and that is worthy of a college level speech. For example, you could persuade your classmates to vote for a particular candidate in the upcoming primary elections, or persuade them to join a particular honor society, or donate money to an important foundation or charity. You can argue for the audience to believe something that not everyone agrees with–is there life on other planets? Or convince them that a policy of our government should change–universal health care, gun control laws, free college for all? Whatever your topic, it needs to be : 1. well researched and appropriately cited, 2. it requires at least one visual aid that supports your research (not just a picture or random object that does little to educate or advance your argument), and 3. should strive for solid reasoning and appropriate support. 4. The speech should be 7-9 minutes long. For this task, you should develop your speech into a final preparation outline. Review Ch. 8 regarding what makes a clear and logical outline, and review Ch. 14 for details about your chosen persuasive organization pattern. Full sentences are required, but you should not be writing in paragraphs. This final outline should meet the following expectations. It should be neat and professional and in APA style. Use Times New Roman font, 12 point size, with 1 inch margins on all sides. I prefer the outline be single-spaced, but double spaced in-between your main points. It should have a References list at the end of the outline in APA style. Use the Purdue Online Writing Lab (Links to an external site.) website for basic rules and examples of APA style citations. The outline should show an outline of the Introduction, with the following sub-points.  Attention Getter.  Clarify and relate topic to audience.  Statement of Credibility.  Thesis (preview the main points). The outline should show an outline of the Body. If you chose the Motivated Sequence, you should show 5 main points. If you chose the Direct Method, you should show 2-3 main points. Main points should each have at least two sub-points. Main points and sub-points should demonstrate coordination, subordination, and mutual exclusivity. The outline should show parenthetical citations for when you use evidence from your sources and when you orally cite those sources. Every source on your references list should also be found in parenthetical citations in the outline. The outline should show consistent and professional notation and indentation. The outline should have References list of all sources, in APA style. *example provided
