Informative Speaking Assignment
Timing: 7-9 minutes per person
To deliver an extemporaneous speech
To develop and organize informative information
To use visual aids in the context of a speech
Use and cite outside sources
An informative speech should work to enhance the listener’s knowledge and ensure that listeners remember the information.
For this speech, you are going to prepare a presentation on a topic related to the theme of literacy.
Literacy is something that doesn’t just relate to reading. It is the idea that people should have a basic understanding or competence in an area. For example, media literacy, wine literacy, car literacy, etc. A lot of our lives are premised on literacy. For example, the ability to file taxes relies on numeric literacy, GE coursework is designed to build literacy across disciplines, and owning a car assumes basic maintenance literacy.
This means that you will choose an object, procedure, person/people, event, or idea to share with the class who we can learn from to improve our literacy.
You will want to do a thorough audience analysis: what does the audience know about your topic? Is your topic over/underused? Does it fall within the requirements of the assignment?
You will also be incorporating outside research. 5-7 articles, books, etc. cited in MLA format both in the outline and verbally as you present.
Finally, you will use a visual aid to highlight or reinforce major points of your speech.
